while i am sad they are not officialy suporting it, I am really happy that they will facilitate the comunity drriven effort to continue it. And here i was worried about Nokia's purchase of troll tech, glad they didn't just let the Java effort die.

While I personally never cared about it, after all SWT and Swing are better options on the Java community, it is nice that they give Jambi to community.

Maybe some people do find a use for it.

Java is absolutely crying out for a decent underlying toolkit, and SWT and Swing aren't it by any stretch.
