Hi,

I've taken a look at QtJambi and it looks nice. In particular the Eclipse integration of the designer looks promising.

Trolltech says, that QtJambi has been developed since several of their customers have been interested in developing Qt with java. Well, it is interesting, but I've never heard any request for this ;) Obviously I've missed it...

Maybe this is a new impulse for GUI developing with java and it is also a good news for the linux desktop environment kde. I am curious about it.

Everybody interested in it should try the webstart demo. http://www.trolltech.com/developer/download/qtjambi.jnlp

This is really cool ;) No installation of the software but really great qt-typically desktop integration.

Greetings

Mike

Hi,

I've found this link a few weeks ago. Don't know, where I got it. But this time I used google ("qtjambi webstart") to find the link.

Greetings

Mike

This is possibly a very cool opportunity to the KDE community to use GCJ and Jambi to write a java-level framework into KDE. I'm not sure Java is such a huge conceptual leap over C++, but it might be worthwhile to take a stab.
