Qt 5.1 for android (is it qtjambi or a normal qt version)



  • Hello,
    The new Qt 5.1 says it supports Android app development.
    Is it an extension of the "qtjambi" or "qtcreator"?
    Normally the Android programming is done using Java.
    So I want to know that is it a type of language binding such as "qtjambi" which is for java, or is it a separate IDE for Android development?
    I am presently using Android Developer Tools(Eclipse based IDE) and Android Studio for my development of applications.



  • Its a java wrapper that loads the c++ libraries of Qt.
    So if qtjambi does that, its similar



  • So does it mean that can we write a program using java and design the interface using the Qt's native qml language for Android app development?

    It is not a language binding. You write your programs in C++ and QML; you don't write any Java code.



  • What if I want to program using Java and QML, but not C++ and QML as I am comfortable with Java more than C++?
    Is that possible?

    I don't think so.

    Qt Jambi provided language bindings to let developers create Qt applications in Java, but it hasn't been maintained for many years. It only supported up to Qt 4.5, but you need Qt 5.1 for Android development.

    There is an unofficial "community fork":http://qt.gitorious.org/qt-jambi/qtjambi-community of Qt Jambi but I don't know what its quality is like, and I don't know if they support Android.

    You can subscribe to the "Development mailing list":http://lists.qt-project.org/mailman/listinfo/development and ask the Qt engineers if they have any plans to provide Java bindings.



  • I am looking forward for using this qtjambi in Ubuntu Software development for Ubuntu Store, so I am looking at concrete solution so that it would be easy for me to decide an IDE for my project work.
    Though I also work on Eclipse and NetBeans but I was thinking of considering Qt as an extra option, because it has the qml.

    Does Eclipse and Netbeans completely support qml ?

    I dont think so. The Eclipse plugin hasnt been updated for ages and I dont even know if there ever was a plugin for netbeans.
