Hello Philippe,

Its really great somebody is really willed to put something working
together instead of talking about licensing, design on and on.
I started myself to "port" JamVM and Classpath to the 770 and got some
swing/awt demos working but stopped till my limited resources after I
identified two problems with the AWT implementation (one of the could
be solved with a quick&dirty hack but I would like to do it properly).
I used JamVM since it was the only free jvm I got working with the
maemo build-sets out of the box (tried sablejvm, kaffe and jamvm) and
its known to be fast (for an interpreter).

If I've some time left I really would join your project/effort, do you
plan to start development in an open process?
I don't have the time to start such a project but I would be willed to
contribute one or more fixes ;)

Yep I know the problem with discussion everything is that everybody
has own opinions, and to make everybody feel comfortable with a
solution is more or less not possible.
Just my opinion: GCJ is very large and memory intensiv, I think it
will efforts in this direction will eventually fail.
Kaffe's JIT supports ARM but its currently broken.
