It's freeware. Russians/Ukrainians/Belorussians are not so oriented to 
strong obligatory licensing, as Europe/USA.

But JOB implements not all of the features even of Oberon-2 standard. 
Better to use Gardens Point Component Pascal for JVM. It's perfect.


Of course, it's freeware and open source.

Also see to side of Ofront (Oberon-2 to C translator) by Prof. Josef 
Templ. Now it's available under BSD license. It's very qualitative product.


I've used it even for writing small games for 8 bit CPU Zilog Z80.


With help of Ofront we can generate native ARM code with industrial 
quality (through C compilers, for example, GCC).

Oberon System V4 (Kepler version, Linz, Austria) translated by Ofront 
and running on tablet PC Nokia N810 - http://norayr.arnet.am/weblog/?p=668

There is one more way. Needed to connect Oberon-2 (Component Pascal) 
(front-end) and LLVM (as back-end). So will be targets x86-64, ARM.

It must not be too complicated.
