Qt Jambi ships as a single Java library, or JAR (Java Archive) file, plus a handful of tools, including an interface layout and design tool, and an Eclipse plug-in. Trolltech uses its vaunted Qt C++ library as the GUI engine and puts Java wrappers around it. This approach uses the JNI (Java Native Interface) to call the necessary functions from Java. More here.

Oh right. So I can open Netbeans or Eclipse or whatever, create a new project called 'Gnome System Tray Applet' and it will give me a Gnome System Tray Applet project with the UI designer and all the boiler plate code required?


Basically yes, because system tray does not have applets, but rather embeds windows created by another application using Xembed.

Thus a "system tray applet" is any application which has a system tray window component and Java can do those.

The only reason you are losing is because you have proven you don't know what you are talking about. I can't really say that any other way. But you'd rather just keep trying to dig yourself a deeper hole, and resort to off the cuff statements about things you know nothing about, then just admit you don't know what you are talking about.

That's because you are not a C++ programer, you are hardly a Visual Basic 6 programmer.
