Dear all,

I read the blog post of Eskil Abrahamsen Blomfeldt 
and I am not sure to understand this sentence
"At this point, your application takes over and can run in its thread 
with no regard to the origin of the input events it is getting."

Does it mean a Qt application on Android is made of two threads where 
the Java thread forwards all events (like touch events) to the Qt 
thread? In other words, an application on Android must run in a Java 
container and we have an overhead due to this architecture: Kernel C > 
Java VM > Java Thread / Native Thread.

I found any discussion on the Qt doc on the architecture impact on 
mobile devices.

Sincerely yours,
