Applies to:
All Developer's Kits: BDK, EDK, RDK, RODK

Question:
Can I include the RDK or another Developer's Kit in a Java application?

Response:
We don't support Java directly in the Developer's Kits, because Java is supposed to run on different platforms (Windows, Mac, Unix, Android), and our core mathematical libraries run on Windows only.  The RDK has COM and .NET interfaces, and there are bridge technologies that make it possible to use COM/.NET components from Java.  So it may be possible to use the RDK in Java, but the resulting program will run on Windows only.
