Re: Java Version

I would tend to agree. I want to build a client in java, but I couldn't
care less what was working under the hood. In fact, I doubt it would be
used much. Yeah, I know, java rules, but hear me out. I doubt many people
would install a java server version. If you ran an IT department and had to
choose which one was developed better, which one would you pick? Not
because java is good or bad; just the level of development and debugging
effort.

I could see possibly a full java client that would talk to the server, but
it might be a good idea to wait until the full platform has stabilized
somewhat. Otherwise the java version would be playing catch-up as the main
version changed.

I do think it would be a good idea to have a set of current working java
client wrappers and builds for different platforms. I've been playing
around with svn for a while and I still haven't set up even a basic java
client, mainly because I haven't taken the time to learn swig yet. With
something ready to go I think more folks would get involved.
