Java bindings?

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Since the C# bindings are apparently not really used/wanted by anyone (except for some Windows people – but that’s really not my main development platform) I thought that maybe some more people are interested in Java bindings.

There was a poll on kdedevelopers.org two years ago that showed Java ahead of Ruby and C# – but it doesn’t seem to be really representative: there are at least some Ruby plasmoids on kde-look.org, but none in C# (which was still ahead of Ruby). Given that Trolltech/Nokia abandoned QtJambi I’m not too sure about Java bindings either.

So I’m asking the community directly before I start putting too much work into a project that noone really wants: So far we have (active) bindings projects for Python, Ruby and Perl – is there any demand for Qt/KDE Java bindings in the community? Or if not for Java, for any other language/platform?

Looking forward to your comments 🙂
