Jambi and Java

Jambi is the next Qt technology for integrating Qt and Java. When I saw the name for the first time, I couldn't stop wondering. Why is it Jambi? For those who do not know yet, it's also the name of a province in Indonesia, but that province is in Sumatra, not Java.

There are still good places in Java which may make a good name (Jakarta is already taken by Apache), for example Jepara, Jogya (old spelling), Jombang, Jember and perhaps couple of more that I couldn't remember.

At least, it's not Jampi :-)

Well, it makes sense that something that allows coexistence of C++ and Java would be named after a city that is in the neighbor of Java, not Java itself. :)

well, I think it is good, so the world will know about other regions in Indonesia.

Ah, the "J" buzzwords continue, and we can continue expecting the next clone called Nambi, that is, .NET + QT :)

Anyway, it's not all about region, isn't. Batik, for instance.

Actually it's nicer to be called jampi instead of jambi, so it's a nice project who make peoples who use it like jampified;D
