Someone correct me if I am wrong, but as far as I have explored with the
platform, you can't just take a component, from say Joomla, and make it run
on the platform.
That said, if you haven't yet, check out:
There's some examples here of how you can instantiate the www web class to
get the platform running. I found the Picasa example really well done
because it shows how different things, like themes, are incorporated and
used, and it even has a bit of a mobile focus.
