Thanks for your quick reply.
Could you release your patch to build Kaffe for QNX.4.x by gcc ?

Real time Java will make us happy. But I don't stick to "Real time" for now.
Our robot project needs HORB and JNI technology in user processes, not so high
Is JNI avalable in Kaffe for QNX 4.x ?
Has anyone succeeded in using JNI ?
Has anyone succeeded in using HORB with Kaffe for QNX 4.x ?
Thank you in advance,
