Consider the following simple application for a moment:
import org.eclipse.swt import org.eclipse.swt.widgets display = Display() shell = Shell(display) shell.setText("Hello!") shell.setSize(200, 200) shell.open() while not shell.isDisposed(): if not display.readAndDispatch(): display.sleep() display.dispose()
So what’s the news? Well, Friday morning I was chatting with Klaus and he said to me “if you get boo to emit java bytecodes I’ll do all my stuff in boo”. How’s that for a challenge? :)
UPDATE: Just in case it’s not clear, the generated class files DO NOT require IKVM in any way and can be executed in any compliant JVM.
