[sword-devel] Android status...

Dear Vitaliy,

The SWORD library has been ported to Android with Java wrapper classes via the NDK. Instructions for building can be found in the trunk of our svn repository under bindings/java-jni/README.


When developing the bindings, I had a test program I used to test the calls to the engine. I called it Bishop, but have not continued to develop it into a fully usable application. I could post the source, but I'd rather see what a real Android UI developer can do with the bindings instead.

The port is very preliminary so please let me know if things seem not to work as you'd expect.
