Re: Java port of Bullet

So, I have some good news guys

after a couple of years of cuddling my dream to port bullet to java, I discovered in the meanwhile Kotlin and useless to say, it was love at first sight..

fast forward to 3 days ago, after over one year experience with it, I decided to put on test my productivity and efficiency with Kotlin... and now I already have the collision tests up and running!

And it's 100% Java compatible!

I'm convinced it'd have taken almost a week using plain Java (and Netbeans, my first ide, Intellij ftw)..

Addressing the last concerns:

- @immortius, I think that if github was famous at jBullet time, things would have gone differently..
I explicitely created an organization to create a suitable environment to gather multiple efforts and where a community may easily grow

- @deepthought, looking again today, it seems bullet3 is still a prototype.. I have nothing against porting it too, but at the moment bullet2 seems the de-facto library, especially given the requirements..

I'd be really glad if someone could get involved to contribute in any way, pulls (also in java), testing, wiki, etc..

I hope you guys will appreciate, enjoy

So, unfortunately I didn't have much time to dedicate it.. so things slowed down a bit.. but right now, I ported (almost) everything for running the project App_HelloWorld (branch b)

Right now I'm looking for valuable inputs, I need some very basic test scenarios in order to debug and coverage code and unfortunately bullet doesn't seem offering a lot of (basic) collision tests

Can anyone help me?
