FreeBSD supports Java and has for some time. As far as I know, any JRE or JDK
based on Java 1.4.2 or 1.5.0 will support both AWT and Swing.
A recent development made it much easier to obtain and run run "native"
FreeBSD java packages, obviating the need in most cases to run a Linux binary
and/or to compile the JDK from source. See
http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/downloads/java.shtml for more information.
