    Entirely true.
    You cannot install the OF Java package in Octave 3.8.x, nor expect it to
    work properly.   Period.

    The Java package has been integrated into Octave-3.8.+, and in the
    course of
    that a lot of stuff has changed so that the OF package is simply

    You'd have to wait until an "official" 3.8.x binary for Windows is
    (some time, some day)

or very soon ;)

    to be able to use Java. Or revert to Octave-3.6.4.
    Or you can even build Octave-3.8.x yourself, with Java support - see the
    wiki under "MXE builds".

well, the wiki page aboud mxe builds (Windows Installer) loses no words
about java.

True, but the MXE build process is fairly robust - on my Linux build boxes (cross-compiling) it found the required JAVA JDK w/o any problems. On Windows (native build) it's even easier (but native MXE builds take ages).

finally I've did new builds  with enable-java and with/without large
indexing support.

AFAICS the latter do work fine generally but do have some issues I'm looking into these days (as far as I can that is). I'll put a summary on the task tracker later on. Especially with Java there are few more sneaky gotchas with the 64-bit builds. I'll add it to the wiki when I get time. Or maybe you can put it in a README with your builds - I'll mail it to you privately.

    What is it you want to do with Java?

Good point. What the hell people want to do with jave? :)

Yeah..... sometimes it is hard to avoid ;-)
