Roma Meta-Framework is a Java framework. In order to implement applications with Roma you have to install on your computer a Java compiler. Although most of Roma components are compiled and work with Java 5, in order to take advantage of all Roma functionalities, you should have Java 6 SDK installed. Go to Sun's Java Home page to download the right SDK.
