Jikes Archives

If you look up on the top bar you will find a new section Jikes Archives. It has several documents from the history of Jikes. I started it at a single page meant to contain the “Jikes Coupon” text I so often mention. Then I came across a link to an old database with some of the actual documents from that days/ I thought I had lost the original proposal to release Jikes in binary form, but it turns out I had squirreled away a copy in that database, so I decided to put it up on the web. I wound up spending several hours tying all the pieces together.

I sent off a note to Jim Chao at alphaWorks as I understand they have some sort of thing planned in mid-November for which this might be useful input.

I also completed this first cut as it is a vivid, actual demonstration of how much one can learn if you just ask your users a question, give them a forum to answer, and take the time to read their suggestions.
