[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] State of Java on the maemo platform

This list would be the best and from the last I saw on the list there
still isn't any working java. From the last I saw javame r2 oss should
compile on arm but I'm yet too see anyone try.

I doubt with the 4+ variants of 'mobile linux' that have sprung up in
the last year or so (maemo, openmoko, formerly palm access platform
and the other which includes moto etc) it will be long before
something emerges though.
