    Free Java

    Right then, about time this was all cleared up. Can anybody explain to me all the different varieties of free Java implementations? So far, I've got:

    GCJ - compiles to normal Java code and native machine code (so no need for a JVM if you compile your application this way?)
    GIJ - runs the normal Java bytecode (JVM)
    Kaffe - also a JVM
    Jikes - compiles to Java bytecode

    Was I close? Are there any real merits of using one over the other? Any other implementations I should be aware of?
