Thanks. These are not exactly what I was looking for, but useful info.

I noticed your scripts (and a bunch of other Cygwin-java scripts around the
'net), but I was going to wait until later to add a java section. Having
jikes as a package would be great (and encourages me to wait until then),
though if I understand the jikes site correctly users would still need
a separate Java JDK or JRE installed. A full java implementation on Cygwin
would be something worth a whole section of the User's Guide.
