Porting WidSets to the Maemo Platform

Stanislav A. Epifanov, Alexander A.~Sannikov

The goal of the project is to provide WidSets widgets to the Maemo platform and to make them integrate nicely into Hildon user interface. The two key problems of the project are creating performance-effective port of WidSets software on Maemo and developing a software layer to integrate widgets into the tablet desktop environment.

The Maemo port of WidSets software will use GCJ Java-to-native code compiler, GNU Classpath (Java API implementation), and MidPath library (MIDP2 implementation). Modifications will be made to these open-source libraries. The modifications are necessary to maintain compatibility with WidSets software and to provide integration with the Maemo platform.
