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.
