Subject Re: Porting Batik to a PDA...
Date Mon, 04 Mar 2002 19:16:17 GMT

I was quite interested in the same thing.  I had even done a port (now 
abandoned).  For me the central problem was being tied to JFrame.  See 
I have also shoved PocketPC off my iPAQ and put on first backdown, then 
pushing that aside for www.savaje.com, which I hoped to make obsolete 
with Jesktop.  I will come back to that but am sidetracked on other 
opensource projects for time being (AltRMI & EOB 
http://eob.sourceforge.net/ )
