Thanks to Dave Shields of IBM Watson Research Center for bringing us this information.

IBM threw support to the Open Source community today with the announcement that the IBM Jikes Java Compiler has been released as Open Source software.

The licensing terms are currently being reviewed by the Open Source board. source code is already available for download and a mailing list has been created for the Jikes project.

"Linux has quickly become the most talked about platform for e-business -- and with good reason."

Thanks, IBM, for bringing Jikes to the Open Source community!
