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).

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.
