Qt Jambi vs. Java API

Posted 15 January 2009 - 09:07 AM

I don't know how many Java programmers here have used Qt Jambi since it is fairly new, but recently I started developing using it and I find I like it FAR FAR FAR better than the standard Java API. I'm just wondering what people's opinions are on both.

For those of you who don't know Qt is an API library produced by Troll Tech, a company owned by Nokia. It was originally C++ libraries, but recently they ported it to Java. Their website is here: http://www.qtsoftwar...products/appdev And it is covered both by GPL and Commercial licenses are available for further support and tools.

If you haven't tried Qt both the C++ and Java libraries are available through the URL provided.

Actually, this is the first time i hear about that... the idea seems interesting though, i have 1 question for you: does the API work for JAVA applets?

It will if the end user has the proper Qt libraries installed. It will not work with a vanilla java framework.

Here is the full Javadoc information: http://doc.trolltech...html/index.html

I didn't actually look into Applet support, as the applications I am programming are stand alone.

Yes it does have applet support for sure. But i don't know how well it works with combined QT and Swing.

I tend to avoid JAVA libraries that aren't on everyone's system for the sake of things that work. As for GUI in C, I'm really liking the GTK.
