Java Bindings Come To Wayland For Android
Phoronix: Java Bindings Come To Wayland For Android
The code to wayland-java has now been made public, which is a project that provides Java bindings to the Wayland back-end library. This Java support will be useful for Wayland support on Google's Android mobile platform...
Better software = fewer wasteful layers.
Wayland's lighter & built with more in mind.
versus GTK on Android:
- Wayland's worse for porting apps to Android (short term)
- Wayland's better if picked-up by Android (medium term)
- Wayland's best on non-Java Linux phones (long term) which could be tested soon in partial-Android environments
Adding thru-JNI costs to native apps on Android will guarantee they're always second-class (ref Firefox OS's discussion vs Android). A common base penalizes either app type the least.
