DrJava and DrScala Releases for the Rice Community
This page contains links to recent builds of DrJava and DrScala that are posted
here prior to appearing (perhaps in updated form) as official
releases. Here you may find more recent builds of DrJava than the
last official release. In some situations, we do internal builds for
internal testing by the Rice community before officially releasing
these builds. Recent builds are not compatible with Java 5; Java 6 is required for DrScala (Scala 2.9 is incompatile with Java 7) and
Java 6 or 7 for DrJava.
DrJava has been partially funded by the National Science Foundation, the Texas Advanced Technology Program, and Sun Microsystems, Inc.
DrScala has been partially funded by the National Science Foundation.
Most Recent Build:
February 22, 2014 (updated by Corky Cartwright)
This version of DrJava is almost identical to the current stable release (September 1, 2013) but it
omits the Java 7 specific feature check in the tools.jar file for the Java JDK that is being used to run
DrScala is still an early pre-alpha program that has some bugs and lacks robustness.
It is designed only to work with Scala 2.9, which is bundled in the DrScala jar file.
Over 20MB of the DrScala jar file consists of jar files from the Scala 2.9.1.final
distribution. The latest "solid" build of DrScala is October 25, 2014.
This build plausibly indents most Scala programs (while adhering to the constraint that it never splits or inserts lines)
and it no longer persists in highlighting single quote marks as in DrJava (where single quotes always bracket characters or character escape sequences).
Nevertheless, it is still incomplete. For example, it does not accommodate triple-quote marks.
