My name is Mathias, I'm one of the developers of DrJava. I'm sorry if I
didn't reply in time, I didn't know this forum existed.

DrJava can *display* hyperlinks in the compiler error window, provided they
ever came up, or in the interactions pane, e.g. as part of a runtime
exception. The latter, for example, could look like this:
> throw new RuntimeException("http://drjava.org";);
at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance0(Native Method)
What we currently do NOT to is let the user click on something that looks
like it might be a hyperlink ("http://"; or "www.") to open a website. We
*could* do that, though, but it would be great to know exactly what you
Please head over to our SourceForge DrJava project's page at
and submit a new feature request that shows the kinds of hyperlinks you want
to see, where they would come from, and what should happen when you click on
Thank you for using DrJava.
