I recently aquired the intelligent display starter kit of 4D Systems (the SK-43PT-Pi ) and after some googling around, I cannot find a starting point of how to interact with this display in Java.
What I've learned is a little bit disappointing: the user interface has to be developed with a tool under ... windows.... as I am a linux user, this poses a real problem.
Secondly, I need to communicate with serial com port under java (also a challenge, hope that RxTx is available under the Pi)
Thirdly.... haa anyone had some experience with this ? or is it better to develop some middleware (C, python, ...) that does the serial communication, and interact with java, eg. via TCP sockets ?
Any advice is appriciated !
(oih, did I mention I do not know C or python :-/ )
