Java YZ Windows

What is Java YZ Windows?

It is a Java implementation of YZ-Windows, a lightweight general purpose windowing/graphics API. See the project Overview for details. Woodley is responsible for the basic design and the C implementation, although Darrick object-orientated it a bit to make it work in Java.
