Hello Giuseppe,

We can add a GNU Classpath/OpenJDK project to the mix:

* Port OpenJDK Robots API to Wayland

OpenJDK is currently tightly coupled with X11 on Linux, but most of
the major Linux distributions are now supporting Wayland. While
XWayland provides most of what is needed to support legacy X11
applications, some components of the JDK Robots API do not work
properly. The goal of this project would be to create an
implementation of the Robots API that ships with OpenJDK to run
natively on top of Wayland. NOTE: The goal of this project is not to
provide a full implementation of the graphics system for Wayland, only
the Robots API.

Project: GNU Classpath/OpenJDK

Expected results: An OpenJDK Robot that uses Wayland directly on Linux.

Difficulty: Medium/High

Knowledge Prerequisite: This project will require good skills in both
Java, JNI and C (as the layer consists of Java code calling native C
code which calls the system functions) as well as good knowledge of
X11 and Wayland architectures and of the Robot API and the AWT stacks
in OpenJDK.

Mentor: Mario Torre

Please, let me know if I should extend the idea with further details.
