AFAIK there's no hildon components(or whatever they're called) for Java. Though it would be very cool if one could write Java for the N900.

There is IcedTea available in the repos (this includes the java command to run a java applications). I use this to run my (hobby) java apps.

I've tried Alchemy, and it runs out-of-the-box on the N900, however the menu is not accessible.

Maybe an Alchemy developer (or yourself) can add another way to access the menu that works for the N900...

What needs to be done after that (I think) is packaging and getting it in the Extras-Devel repository so everyone can benefit.

It involves rewriting all of the menus in a N900 happy way. I started this too for another app but got so bogged down in it,and there so little info out there on it that I gave up. Would love to have another go, but been made redundant and now trying to run 2 businesses just to eat. lol.
Last time I asked for info, I was told hildonizing is the old way, and it's all changed now... been a while so would have to refresh my memory...
