I was at FOSDEM this year and attended two interesting conferences, the
subject of which could probably help speed up the Haiku OpenJDK port
quite a bit. I was wondering how others saw it on the project.
I don't yet have the time to look into it, but hopefully later.
- first one was about cross compiling OpenJDK to embedded ARM targets,
cf. the docs at
while it use some linux-specific crossbuilding scripts it could likely
- other one was Caciocavallo which provides a much simpler way to write
native AWT backends, and a progressive way of doing it (first
framebuffer like, then use native canvas but draw from Swing, then
eventually the fullblown AWT):
