I wrote a simple Java GUI app using Jalimo the other day just as soon as I
got my FR.

It worked great, just as described on the wiki/links from wiki.

The key was I went ahead and used the SWT framework (which is also available
in the packages).

a couple recommended opkg installs
built little gui in Eclipse (compiled using the swt jar)
copied the class to the phone
ran from the command line...
And life was full of joy!

Hope this helps.  I know I didn't look up the links, but they are readily
available.  I figured its the procedure that you needed.
