SWT over X-Windows? [message #444983] Sun, 24 October 2004 12:53 Go to next message

Greetings,

I would like to create a gui application with SWT but this application will
run on a PDA and the actual monitor screen will be an X Server. So imagine
creating an app on a pocket PC and then showing that app on a bigger
computer after it connects to the PDA with TCP.

Are there any ports of SWT that can do this? If not, how hard would it be to
port SWT to use the XLib ?

Hi Robert,

if your PDA has some Linux running on it that includes X, there should
be no problem ;-)

Alas, that was really just a joke. As far as I know, there is no
Linux/ARM port of SWT available, unfortunately. Maybe it's not even hard
to do, but I guess you'll probably want to let it run on Windows CE anyway?

It would have to run on PocketPC os.

How hard would the port be if I could locate a C XClient library?

Hi there!

Well quite hard because:
1.) Swt might need some changes to run on Arm
2.) GTK/Motif based ports have never been ported to windows (cause it
would be nonsense).

If you would linux on your pda it would be a lot easier!

customers

SWT already runs on ARM btw. Just not XClient on arm.
