"Swing" framework available now for GCJ


Hi,

GCJ users may be interested in the open-source "Charva" project at http://sourceforge.net/projects/charva - it is a "Swing" framework for character-based terminals (e.g. xterm, PuTTY etc).

The absence of a true javax.swing package for GCJ hampers the adoption of GCJ for client-side applications. If you use Charva, you can at least present a "graphical" user interface (with JFrames, JPanels, JTextFields, JButtons, etc) on a character-based terminal. The Charva API is based as closely as possible on the Swing API.

Charva has been around for several years, is quite stable, and has already been adopted quite widely for certain niche applications; e.g. remote management of Linux/Unix servers, and for use on ruggedised portable computers (details are on the project website at http://www.pitman.co.za/projects/charva ).

Charva is compatible with GCJ - the download tarball contains an example of an application compiled with GCJ.

Regards
Rob Pitman
