Dear friend if you want to build java programs you will need JDK and to run java program you will need JRE ..

Does java actually run at all on MIPS? I thought only x86(_64) and SPARC were supported. If it isn't, you'll need to look for one of the open source implementations, like Kaffe, GCJ or CACAO. They won't be nearly as powerful as the (open)JDK, though. Maybe OpenJDK supports MIPS. It would be a lot closer to the sun JDK than any of the other ones.

Google .. sun java mips..
> "Java SE for Embedded Products"

I found no java development kit for mips.
You can perhaps find a "may work" run time java.
( Openjdk ? IcedTea ? Or a java simulator ? )
