JPL (Java Perl Lingo)/JNI

c-era has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Since most of the other programmers I work with use java, the JPL has been a lifesaver for me (I call java classes from perl). It has also given me a nice GUI to use. When we upgraded to java1.4 the JPL stopped working. Looking through the code, I noticed that the JNI module was still using JNI for java1.1. With java1.4, that interface has been depreciated. Ive made the necessary changed to JNI.xs to work (at least on win32 with activestate). I was wondering how many other people use JPL, and if I should take the time to make the module ready for distribution (I have a couple of things hard coded for convenience), or if someone is already working on it?

If I do complete this module, how do I go about submitting it (since it is a core module)?

Id appreciate any comments you have.

    The last time I looked at JPL, it looked like most of the support had moved over to Inline::Java. Even the JPL mailing list was deserted.

    But if you can get it working again, it could be pretty useful, I think (although not to me, I escaped from Java:))

      I know this is an old post, but I'm wondering, how, if possible, have you still escaped java? Please provide instructions :)
        I was never very deep into Java's clutches, so that helps...

        I've always (well, for the last 20+ years) been mainly a C++ and perl developer.
