Can you give me more background why is there no native OpenJDK and perhaps also no native Oracle Java?

If I have the idea to create an cygwin package for Maven3, I have first t create an OpenJDK or an
Oracle Java native package? Is that the trouble?

No, because unfortunately we do not have an OpenJDK.

OpenJDK is a Windows thing.  It is such a large complex system, and probably
so deeply knowledgeable of the OS it is running under, that it would be difficult
to port to cygwin -- and (in my own opinion) maybe not really worth it.  As with Java,
I think you need to use the Windows Maven.  I agree that it is no fun to have
to write things to map cygwin paths to Windows paths to use Windows native tools
like this, but it is sometimes necessary.  cygpath is your friend ...

This is one area where cygwin is not as seamless as one might wish, but it is
not so much cygwin's fault as it is the nature of the particular tools and the
fact that they have sophisticated Windows ports already available ...
