- All platform benefits such as font sub-pixel decimation for LCD monitors
- Use Swing on mobile devices

WidgetServer

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Frameworks, Rich client UI - Swing, Web frameworks

Author: C1 SetCon

Latest version: 1.0 RC 4
Added 2005-06-30Updated 2006-06-07

WidgetServer (WiSer) is a Java/XML server-side GUI-framework that enables an application to run as either
- a monolithic application with a Swing GUI,
- a client/server application with a thin Swing client,
- or as an application with a rich Web client based on HTML and JavaScript
without any change and without loss of functionality.

XML markup helps to define an application's GUI fully separated from Java code. A unified widget-based, object-oriented programming interface for Web and Swing GUIs is offered to the developer to control and assemble the GUI, instead of struggling with HTML, JavaScript, and HTTP requests, or the internals of Swing. For Swing client/server applications, the framework handles client/server communication, including compression and security layers. The framework also supports a mixed deployment mode, which enables one server to serve Swing clients and Web clients at the same time.
A WYSIWYG GUI-builder is included.

Categories: Deployment - Installation, Rich client UI - Swing

Author: Accendia

Latest version: 2.2
Added 2006-04-11

Facilitates launching Java Swing applications deployed on a remote server without installing or downloading the application component files.
The technology narrows the gap between the web browser and Swing by making large client applications instantly available to the user and providing a web style experience in the startup process.

Features include:
- comprised of a server where Swing applications are deployed and a client stub that loads the application classes and resources on demand;
- the application code is downloaded from the server and runs on the client computer;
- the client never caches anything on the local drive. The application jars are not downloaded from the server;
- the application runs in a secure environment similar to Java Applets and unsigned applications in WebStart. A secure API is provided for developing applications that read and write local files and print documents under strict user control.

JGoodies Looks

Categories: Rich client UI - Swing

Author: JGoodies

Latest version: 2.0.4
Added 2006-07-19

Looks & feels for Swing applications and applets.

Features include:
- Windows look & feel: focuses on an emulation on Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000 in the following areas: menus, icons, colors, borders, fonts, font sizes, insets, and widget dimensions. It honors the screen resolution (96dpi vs. 120 dpi) to adjust sizes, insets, and widget dimensions.
- Multi-platform appearance: Plastic is a multi-platform look & feel family that works well on all Windows platforms, including XP. The Plastic themes have been tweaked for a harmonic integration with the majority of desktops so that your applications won't alienate a Windows user.
- Simplifying multi-platform support: the looks help you support different Java versions and operating systems. Each look is consistent for Java 1.4.0x, 1.4.1x, 1.4.2 and the 1.5.0 betas - to the possible extent of features of the underlying Swing API.
- In addition, Plastic, the Windows look & feel, and the Windows native look use similar widget dimensions and widget font baselines to minimize layout differences between these looks.
- ClearLook: find and fix common swing misuses
