    Default Qt/Jambi, anyone else playing around with it?

    Just wondering if anyone else is giving it a go and how satisfied they are with it.

    Been playing it around for a week or so now and I've to say I quite like it. Some things in Qt are very well thought out and in general when compared to swt/awt everything takes fewer lines of code.

    Besides doing things with fewer lines of code being needed I also like how 'native' it feels. Ofcourse since I'm using KDE as well I can't say I'm a fair judge.. but it feels a lot faster and they gave some things like buttongroups a lot of thought to make sure it shows up in a way that's native to the OS.
    It's also working a lot better under KDE when it comes to dual monitor use, dialogs don't pop up on the wrong monitor etc.

    The documentation however isn't all that great, a lot of examples are still in C++ and the only way to get jambi specific support is by joining the mailing list (no irc channel or forums). Been getting most of what I planned done although sometimes taking a lot of time.

    Overall I'm quite satisfied with it and hope a lot more people will make use of it, I'll see if I can contribute some examples myself via the mailing list (so wish there was a forum..)

    Being a Java developer primarily I enjoyed QtJambi quite a bit. As far as KDE support there isn't much of anything. I thought I read something a while ago saying that QtJambi isn't going to be developed any further.
    It's really that much fun!

    I'm also developing in Java and using it for my studies, I've made a tutorial on my blog so far, sent bug report for the examples in the documentation and... I'm going to continue work with QtJambi in the next few days.
