Dear Player/Stage users,

Does anybody use Java for developing clients for Player/Stage? What is the state of Java language in this field?
Google's search shows 2 years old Javaclient project. As I see it was great, but unfortunately it is stopped for now.

Also I would like to know where can I get additional information about Player client developing strategies or architectures? Mostly I am interested in multi-robot / swarm controllers for Stage simulation.
I do not want to believe that everyone is using single infinite control loop (procedural approach in general) as it is shown in examples. I would be grateful for any advice.

Thank you!

Best regards,
Vitalijs
