Hi
I am new to this list, sorry if these questions has been answered on this forum before, but I could not find information regarding installing java on the 6000L.

We have developed a little piece of java software intended to run on blackdown's jre 1.3.1. We have ordered the zaurus 6000L, and are qurious as to how it will work.

1. Are there anyone in here who has successfully installed the JRE on a 6000L with swing, and if so, how did you accomplish it? As far as i can gather, I can use the ipkg package of blackdown's jre, but I need to install some libraries and make som sym-links in order to get the swing/awt funtions to work.

2. If you have made it, how does swing/java applications flow on your zaurus, is it fast? (Do you have some nifty screenshots?)

3. We want to use wlan in our java application, has anyone tested this?

1. Not that I know of but I would be interested as well. Where do you get a blackdown ipk?

This is what I used on my iPAQ3765 with Familiar/Opie7.2+ before I ever owned a Zaurus. I have never tried it on a Z before because of it's size... over 11megs.
Here it is, give it a go:

I just checked and the links are still good except for the one library (libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2)

Here's your ipkg for blackdown:

Thanks, but allready seen this info, and tried it on an ipaq (2210).
But we really want to know how it performs on a zaurus 6000L... unsure.gif

We want screenshots! biggrin.gif
It'd be great if someone could post some screenshots of java running on a zaurus 6000L, so we could distribute it among our collegues here. smile.gif

Thanks for the links, maybe I'll have time to run it over the weekend. But since the necessary library seems to be compiled with gcc 2.95.x I really doubt it will work in OZ 3.5.1...

The bad news:
The blackdown JDK works just with a running X display to connect to. You can either install X/Qt on your sharprom or replace your sharprom with pdaXrom. I did the first approach. The menu, fonts and all the swing widgets are so small that it's hard to use swing programs. Moreover swing apps are very slow, due to intensive use of floating point math and the Z's processor is integer only.

The good news:
It works at all.
