Anyone knows if there is a JDK port for SunOS 5.5.1. I know that there are versions for Solaris but I was not able to find anything for SunOS at Sun's site.

try http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/ . Choose any of the jdk versions there. The supported OS are documented in the specific version you will select.

That is where I went and found some Solaris versions. I expected to find a list of ports of JDK that I have visited before but it seemed that it was taken down temporarily. Am I correct in assuming that Solaris and SunOS is two different operative systems and Sun does not support JDK for SunOS. Or does a Solaris JDK work with SunOS as well?

 No you are wrong. I at the time of SunOS4.3.1 the Solaris2 was out. Now Solaris_5.5.1 and SunOS_2.6 is the same thing. About old versions of jdk I haven't found old versions to.

Oops, I meant - "Solaris_5.5.1 and SunOS_2.5.1 are the same thing".

My apologies for turning down your answer. I found out independently the same thing so your answer were totally perfect. Please submit another one.

I downloaded JDK 1.1.6 for Solaris 2.4-2.6 and it seems to work fine. What I don't understand is the point of having different names for the same thing. It is quite confusing. Do you know the reason?

---------------------------------------------------
The reson for the double nameing for the operating system is that when the first Solaris (2) was out - they invented a new naming convention but didn't stopped the old one. They just kept both of them going. Not very logical, I agree.
