Yes, it based on Handy/SDL 0.95.

Very good start to an Android port! I'm using it on a Galaxy Nexus, and the joypad and buttons are very small. An option to resize the controls would be nice, as I'm finding I can't get reliable joypad response when the entire joypad is smaller than my thumb. Good work!

Hello, as long as I did not distribute the source code, because I do not know what I need to upload. This project is closed source, and that means that I need to open only those sources that are licensed under the GNU GPL? I would be very grateful if you could help me clarify this situation. File GNU GPL License I will will spare the application.

Yes, the GPL is has a strong copyleft, so if you are linked to the library, you code is under the same license.
Thank you for your reply. My project is divided as it were, into two parts:
1. Shared library, written with source code Handy/SDL.
2. The shell in Java, written by me and using the functions in this library (libalynx.so).
Is the second also falls under this license?

You should read my posts on more time :
Just curious, where did you see that Handy is covered by GPL? Keith's original custom license was very lenient and is still included with the source distribution as the only license as far as I can tell. Even on the Handy SourceForge page it only points to the zlib/libpng License which also looks fairly innocuous.
HANDY/SDL is under GNU GPL.
As your work is based on a software (Handy/SDL) which is licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL License (a license with a strong copyleft, so you can't choose your license, your derivative work is under GNU GPL too), you should comply with it :
Not the original Handy.
As the original Handy by K.Wilkins is under a permissive license, you could do proprietary software with it, but you should rewrite by yourself all the SDL related stuff.

That is, from the Handy/SDL remained only part from Handy 0.95. Therefore, for clarity, I can remove all the sources of the project, based on the Handy/SDL, add the source of Handy 0.95 and my project will be is not licensed under the GPL?
With regard to the project open - I like the idea, but so far I do not know how long he will remain closed.
In the meantime I published the first update (v1.01):
- Homebrew rom support;
- Support for pressing diagonal on a d-pad;
- Ability to change the size of pads (for 800x480 screens and more);

Yes, I agree with that.
But, if you have already distributed one version based on Handy/SDL to someone, you must provide him the source code if he asks for.
On bugs and errors can be reported in this thread, I will try to correct them. Now I rewrite the core using the source code from Handy and yet, most likely, the project will be closed.
But there is a bug in the new feature "Ability to change the size of pads (for 800x480 screens and more)", and an open project with a bug tracker could be great to fix it (and improve the project in general).
