What is Hildon?
Hildon (or more precise Hildon UI) is an adaption/wrapper/modification of GTK for stylus/touch screen based tablets like the Nokia 770 and N800. See this link for more detailed information:
- How Hildon fits into maemo: http://maemo.org/development/documentation/tutorials/Maemo_tutorial_bora.html#overview
- Hildon doxygen: http://maemo.org/api_refs/3.0/hildon-docs/hildon-libs/index.html
If I understand it correctly, plain GTK support isn't enough to enable Java GUI on the Nokia internet tablets because it would not integrate seamlessly with the rest of the UI.
Thanks very much for the pointers. This helps. I'd like to see the first part of the porting effort center on GTK widgets-only, since we can then use the generic GTK port of pMEA Personal Profile to run on other GTK devices (especially like the OpenMoko cell phone).
Then if you and others want, you can branch off the generic GTK port to be Hildon-specific for the Nokia N770/N800. This way we can still get broad coverage of the GTK port for other GTK devices and even Linux/x86/GTK, which having another branch that takes advantage of special Nokia N770/N800 features.
Does this sound OK with you (and others on this list)?
