Java Wiki on a Kindle

Hi,
I wondered if anyone has an answer to this:
1. Is it possible to install Java 5 onto a Kindle and run apps on that?
2. I was looking at JAMWiki, a Java 5 based wiki and wondered if that could be ported to the Kindle.
3. I then want to import my Mediawiki content into the JAMWiki space.

Any of this possible?
TIA
D.

There is already java running on the kindle

In fact Most of the ui is running in java.
And Amazon is sending beta for the Kindle dev kit

also see

but it is java 1.4me

My take is that java 6 is quite possible, using the openjdk and compiling it for arm6. But thinking of the effort it requires I would start using the existing jre, as I think that using 1.4 would not be that limiting.

If you want to start this way there is http://adq.livejournal.com/107360.html which explain a good deal about developing kindle java programs.

I know nothing about Java but have used quite a few wiki's. It should be fairly simple to install a Perl or PHP based wiki on the Kindle.

A couple of Kindle projects already use tiny webservers such as BusyBox. Here' a link to how to run PHP with BusyBox https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=11098

I'd be tempted to use a wiki that needs no database (for speed and simplicity) eg DokuWiki http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WikiEngines

Good luck!

Installing php on the kindle would require cross compiling php for the arm processor (which is not as straightforward as compiling a java application whih can run on the kindle.

Taking the path of least resistance, I think I agree with dvhh that using a Java based wiki is the more straightforward approach.
Mnay thanks for the feedback.
