I know there is a java category, but I wasn't talking about that; I was talking about the java portgroup, whose code you can see here:


I know that it does not presently contain code to check for the presence of the JDK, but I was suggesting that it might be appropriate to add such code to that portgroup, though one should check how the portgroup is currently being used to see if that would be appropriate.
