Hello

I've just seen this today in kaffe's changelog:

* New Nano-X AWT backend.

Kaffe is a java VM, which can now use nano-x to display AWT (and swing?) components...

It has already been ported to IPAQ, Zaurus, and for familiar distribution...

see http://www.kaffe.org

Anyone interested in trying to port it to the GP with nano-x backend?

The SableVM Project

A robust, clean, easy to maintain and extend, extremely portable, efficient, and specification-compliant Java virtual machine.

SableVM has been ported to many architectures, including (non-exhaustive list) the following architectures under Debian GNU/Linux: alpha, arm, i386, ia64, m68k, powerpc, s390, sparc, hppa. It is also known to work on FreeBSD/i386, Mac OS X, Cygwin and a few others.

I have been looking around for a purpose close to this (I want java running on my router), and apparently the smallest full Java runtime today is jamvm which is ported to the ARM platform.

I have compiled and run jamvm with GNU Classpath out of the box on a PowerPC Linux, so I expect it to be similar on the GP32 under Linux. I could run Jetty (web applicationn server) without any problems.

GP32 may not have enough resources for this, though.

Hello
I doubt that 8MB of ram will be enough, but try it and keep us updated!
