Thanks, is there tutorial on the translation of Java to D.
Which tools is used?
Pls guide me, I am really interested in translating JavaFX to D
From what I can recall and find on the Internet, the tool used
was named "tioport". It is only viewable on the old (deprecated)
dsource.org website. Last activity was in 2007. A runtime
library, dejavu, was used to emulate the java standard library. A
port of swt 3.2.1 was done with it. I doubt that it supported D 2.
I cannot find anything fresher than 2007 concerning tioport. The
DWT project is still active:
I suppose once the first translation was made, the resulting code
base was maintained incrementally, without resorting to whole
translation of the SWT code.
