This article describes requirements and challenges of cross-platform multi-touch software engineering, and presents the open source framework Multi-Touch for Java (MT4j) as a solution. MT4j is designed for rapid development of graphically rich applications on a variety of contemporary hardware, from common PCs and notebooks to large-scale ambient displays, as well as different operating systems. The framework has a special focus on making multi-touch software development easier and more efficient. Architecture and abstractions used by MT4j are described, and implementations of several common use cases are presented.
