Hi Damjan,

I'm very interested in seeing some of the work around Java and what kind 
of architecture you're thinking about.

Lately I've been working on UNO Extension project generators using 
Gradle and Lazybones templates.

So far I have working code to generate Groovy UNO Client apps and also 
Addon Extensions with Gradle build systems that are IDE independent. It 
will also work for Java apps also.

Hopefully I can get ONE more binding vote on the Groovy UNO Extension 
vote so I can finish up the extension generators ;-)

Best regards,
