Qt-Java bindings: opportunities for chemistry

Duncan Mac-Vicar P. pointed me to this: Trolltech released a beta of Jambi (see this overview), which makes the Qt widget environment accessible from the Java programming language. One interesting tool of Jambi, is the tool that automatically builds a Java API to C++ libraries. Have not tried it yet, but hope to do so soon, as it might be useful for the ghemical plugin for Bioclipse. According to the press release, it also allows mixing C++ and Java code, which might offer interesting options to integrate CDK with Kalzium, which Carsten is heavily working on for the KDE4 release.

Jerome Pansanel released kfile_chemical 0.12 today. This release depends on chemical MIME for making KDE registering the chemical MIME types. The next step is to convert the build process to make use of CMake.
