does this group exist

P: n/a
There is a post in comp.lang.java.machine that says that this
group doesn't really exist.

I wanted to be sure that it did.

It doesn't. You're just dreaming it all. If you wake up we'll all disappear.

It depends on your definition of "exist".

comp.lang.java was retired in 1996, replaced by a number of more
specific newsgroups. Most people don't see postings on comp.lang.java,
because only a few news servers still carry it. Google Groups carries
it for its historical value, and a few ISPs (mainly cable-Internet
providers) seem to carry it out of ignorance :-)

The current worldwide Java newsgroups are:

comp.lang.java.3d 3D Graphics API's for the Java language
comp.lang.java.advocacy Support for and criticism of the Java System
comp.lang.java.announce Announcements re the Java System (Moderated)
comp.lang.java.beans Java software components (JavaBeans)
comp.lang.java.corba Topics relating to Java and CORBA
comp.lang.java.databases Databases, java.sql, JDBC, ODBC
comp.lang.java.gui GUI toolkits and windowing: AWT, IFC etc
comp.lang.java.help Set-up problems, catch-all first aid
comp.lang.java.machine JVM, native methods, hardware
comp.lang.java.programmer Programming in the Java language
comp.lang.java.security Security issues raised by Java
comp.lang.java.softwaretools IDEs, browsers, compilers, other tools.
