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 of DrJava and DrScala are only compatible with Java 8.
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.

The current build of DrJava fixes some important bugs, namely problems
with code coverage, at least on OpenJDK 8 on Ubuntu Linux which is our
development platform. We have yet to test it on Windows 10 using Amazon
Corretto 8 (a build of OpenJDK 8 on Windows).
DrScala is still an alpha test program that has many bugs and lacks robustness.
The recent (2017 and later) builds are designed only to work with Scala 2.13, which is bundled in the DrScala jar file.
The underlying Java platform must be Java 8.
Over 20MB of the DrScala jar file consists of jar files from the Scala 2.13
distribution. The latest "solid" build of DrScala is drscala.jar which
was built on 10 Sept 2018.
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 or the Scala generalization of Java package nomenclature.
