    Great new docs!  

Please find shots of Java in action on the 770 at:

You can see the AWT problems in action on the first screenshot. RedHat 
is on top of the problems:



The second screenshot is JamVM and GNU Classpath running the GST client 
on top of Knopflerfish OSGi. SyncML is being dumped to the screen. The 
kXML (www.kxml.org) XML/WBXML engine is used.

The last screenshot is after I hit the display failure (white with dim 
vertical stripes) HW. I heard that there was a software workaround but 
this turned out to be wrong.
I look forward to getting my hands on another device.

It is the Knopflerfish OSGi desktop running on the Nokia 770 with X 
redirected, on top of SableVM 1.11 and GNU Classpath Swing. GNU 
Classpath Swing is not yet complete :-) . The (debian)1.13 version was 
seg-faulting so I backtracked to 1.11. It looks much better already with 
1.13 :-).

The X server is FC4-something and the WM is not Matchbox.

SableVM was considered an FUD by the rest of the Java community so they 
joined Apache Harmony as they seek no controversy. Although I have been 
arguing in favor of GNU against SableVM, the SableVM founder and 
maintainer calls these current results "neat!", as can be found out when 
reading the full mailing list archives.

Next thing to try out is eSWT.

We are looking forward to running our complete client-side product suite 
on the 770 as it is a perfect device for it.

Best Regards,

Philippe Laporte
