J++ is not actual Java (to my knowledge), and if it is, it's not a

As I understand it then:

J++ = Java 1.1.4 - RMI - JNI + COM

Was the MSVM also lacking RMI/JNI*? I had always
believed that the MSVM was only non-compliant in
the addition of the MS specific classes, but was
otherwise a 'complete 1.1'. (* I have never had
the need to use JNI or RMI, so I am not sure about
their inclusion or absence from a JRE.)

I am pretty sure that SUN sued because of what was
missing not because of what was added.

If they had only added then it would be able to pass
a TCK test (even though I think this was before TCK).

"We decided not to support Sun's native interface ("JNI") and not to
include Sun's Remote Method Invocation package ("RMI"). We have been
very clear with developers and other customers that we do not include
these aspects of Sun's JDK 1.1."
