Last Week

Mostly off due to sickness
  • Currently looking at new rich content client option for our Java GUIs as a way to improve the user GUI experience.
    • Looked at JAX-RS, Websockets but they would require a significant paradigm shift with respect existing code, basically they run on servlet technology, would have to have your html facing interfaces in a WAR file served by say Jetty/Tomcat/GlassFish and then having a backdoor RMI channel back to your POJOS (Plain Old Java Objects) wink
    • Looking now at JavaFX and JXBrowser.
      • JavaFX is the replacement of Java Swing. Still unclear if it can run javascript, have to play with it a bit more, but it uses CSS to customize widgets and has a large and interesting widget suit, much much richer than swing.
      • WebView this is an opensource browser that runs as an application within the javaFX as JxBrowser does but it is free, part of WebKit.
      • JxBrowser is a full HTML5 compliant crhomium based embedded software. This is literally the holy grail ... but it is not free and not cheap but maybe they might have something for non-profit/universities.
This Week
  • Generating pit PDF proposals for the Queue dev team in Michelle absence.
  • Keep looking at JavaFX and JxBrowser with OT binocular as a backdrop
  • LUCI AFC? a maybe if they can test at all.
