Java problems

I have a 300 megahertz PPC iBook running Yellow Dog
Linux 3.x. I
installed Linux on it so that I could learn Linux
better for the
Computer Science class I am taking. I would like to
compile Java
programs on it, but I can't find a distribution of Java that works on a PPC.
How can I do this?
What programs do I need? Where can I find them?

Thanks so much for your help!

Well forget about using Java's SDK (I hope you don't need the 1.5 API) but there are other java compilers you could try out.

With Gentoo I use Blackdown, which is open source so you can compile it on any architecture you like. (Though I am not sure if it is just a JRE, or a full SDK)

Take that back, it is a software developers' kit (SDK)
