is the home of Tcl Blend. Tcl Blend is a Tcl package that provides access to Java
classes from Tcl. Tcl Blend is implemented using JNI. Tcl Blend is production ready software, it is stable enough to be used in production systems on a daily basis.Jacl
and TclBlend are both implementations that make it easy to use Tcl scripting on the Java platform. The Tcl/Java project provides mailing lists [1
], online documentation [2
], and a bug reporting interface [3
Links to a number of Jacl and Tcl Blend related articles are also available [4

The notes that reside in the tclblend cvs repository seem to indicate that the current incarnation of tclblend works with Tcl 8.4.13, Thread
2.6.3 or greater and JDK 1.4 .
During April 2008, an announcement was made that the TclBlend 1.4.1 release was available online at the sf.net project sight..
I've been able to build tclblend 1.4.1 on a 32bit Linux system with "make test" results as follows (all builds using Thread 2.6.5):
|Tcl version|| jdk||result|
|8.4.18|| 1.6||only one test failure, JavaImportCmd-2.8 but the test commands work if entered |
| || ||interactively so this is likely timing and thread related|
| || ||(there are other test failures that are explained by jdk changes and are not errors)|
Something is very wrong with using Tcl 8.5 and Tclblend - the first tests to fail are related to setting errorCode or errorInfo results in the interpreter, but there are many errors and segfaults. I am hoping someone who is familiar with TclBlend and 8.4 to 8.5 internal changes may shed some light on the subject.
