ppliWeb is an
ongoing project. You can only download a demonstration and proof
of concept release.
Many more stages are required before releasing a full v1.0 product.
We need to develop the following :
- Great graphical buttons which download the images after displaying
the text. (like HTML, you see the text first, and then the images
are downloaded while you read). <=
- XML description pages support <=
- The user interface of the Serializer tool needs to be more complete.
<= Done !
- A user guide should be written <= Current
The source code can be sent to anyone asking for them. For now,
it's not open source, but everything can change...
Check the news often on the main page !
Yes, release v1.0 is just finished and we already talk about v2
What's foreseen for this next release ?
First of all, the ability to read directly Java classes instead
of serialized files. With release 1 and the serialization mechanism
used, it's impossible to make buttons that reacts to a user event
(for example, graying a non-valid check box) , that will change
with release 2.
This release will handle downloaded .jar file, with update, suppress,
copy on the user hard-drive...
For now, when you need to use a new release of a Java page, you
must restart the Serializer tool. This won't be true for the next
contains many problems, shown here.
1. The serialization mechanism, as provided by SUN, does not work
very well. For instance, the table and textedit controls cannot
be used ! I have great hopes in the updates of the jdk.
2.The buttons "Previous" and "Next" are not working perfectly,
for instance, when used with a modal dialog box, but it's very difficult
to design !
