Qt Jambi - Qt for Java

Qt is the de facto standard C++ framework for high performance cross-platform software development. Qt Jambi is the Qt library made available to Java. It is an open source technology aimed at all desktop programmers wanting to write rich GUI clients using the Java language, while at the same time taking advantage of Qt’s power and efficiency.

The technology provides new possibilities for both Java and C++ programmers: It enables Java developers to take advantage of Qt’s features from within Java Standard Edition 5.0 and Java Enterprise Edition 5.0 as well as later versions. In addition, Qt Jambi also enables C++ programmers to easily integrate their Qt code with Java by providing the Qt Jambi generator.

Qt Jambi 4.8.6 for Windows

There is now a new release for Windows x86 and x64.

This release has been compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 so don't forget to install the Redistributable Package.

Besides using Qt 4.8.6, the existing installer script has been adapted to support this compiler, and a few bugs regarding the execution of the Examples and Qt Designer have been fixed, allowing for both of them to work out of the box.

Qt Jambi 4.8.6 for Linux

There is now new release for 64 bit Linux.
I’ll do 32 bit package later, for Windows current builds should work, but updated packages will follow after
few Windows bundling related problems have been sorted out.

Most notable differences are bundling of libpng, so distributions not shipping the libpng the bundled Qt
was built with will continue working and bump to Qt 4.8.6.
