FreeSIF seems good for me, but isn't it a little close from opensif ?
Having seen many nasty Copyright problems arise with project namings I
would be carefull with that.
I've just browsed their site. Apparently they work on a java based
version of SIF and ZIS. They mention several times a "JaZ open source
java reference implementation" produced by SUN but I couldn't find it
does anyone have more information on this ? If it exists and is really
opensource it would be very usefull.
