Hi Justin,

I hope things are going well with you. I am writing regarding your talk on
porting ImageJ to the Android platform for the ImageJ conference next
month. It is something I regret not having time to investigate more, so I
am happy that you explored it.

>From your abstract (
it sounds like you encountered quite a few difficulties. Anything you would
care to discuss prior to the conference? Leaving the door open for mobile
support has been a major design goal of ImageJ2, so if there are roadblocks
it would be good to hear about them, to make any corrections in the
architecture sooner rather than later.

Moreover, in general, we would be very interested to hear details of your
approach. Did you try to build the code as-is (or minimally modified) for
use with Dalvik? Or compile from .class to .dex? Did you try the Maven
Android plugin (https://github.com/jayway/maven-android-plugin)? Did you
think about creating an HTML5/Javascript frontend to an ImageJ server, for
cross-platform mobile support?

These are all directions we would love to see explored. You are more than
welcome to discuss your findings on this mailing list, and/or post
technical details on the ImageJ2 wiki (http://wiki.imagej.net/ImageJ2).
