I'm afraid I've working on language bindings recently and haven't been able to
do any gideon stuff.
The main thing to be done is the Java debugger. I had planned to use Sun's
jpda library to write one in Java, which would take at least 3-4 weeks to get
something worthwhile going. However, if Thomas Kuhn's gcj/CNI adaption of the
KDE java bindings works ok, and we can get it checked into the cvs in about a
week. Then it will be just a matter of getting jbb's gdb front end to work with
Java/gcj - I don't know what is involved in moving to gcc 3.0 and associated
gdb version. But if the debugger works ok, two weeks might be about right - we'd
have a killer native code Java development tool all of a sudden. :-). Also, if
we use gdb it makes it much easier to debug mixed C++/Java code.
