I'm trying to interface to a neat new joystick with Java, and I'm not finding anything that is current. The best looking jar files are 'jinput' but that project is locked on Java.net, the url is https://jinput.dev.java.net/
It doesn't seem to have any active development, or support. Things like the "getting started" link get a 404.
There are assorted references that you can find by googling for "game" or Joystick API, but none seem current. There is even a fair amount of discussion of "standard Java Game API" with input devices, which sounds promissing, but I'm not finding where this standard API is documented, etc.
I can probably reverse engineer if from the C code I can find, but that feels like more work than I want, I really need to move onto the game coding.
