Sub_title: Cross platform programming
 

I've been experimenting with java as a cross-platform language, and wrote a library database that works nicely on linux and windows with the latest Java JRE binaries (an easy download from Oracle does it). Run the files with "java -jar file.jar" I had to switch to OpenBox WM, since there's a conflict with JWM and java files.

Here's a library app to test. <Add> or <Remove> handles books on a clickable alphabetized list. Clicking an item writes the title and author into the entry boxes, and posts the original entry date. There's a button for getting the total number of books.

Data from the book class is written in XML format into the mlData folder, along with the book-list.

Updated: Cut File size by a third; added publish info.
Updated: Streamlined code.

Updated: 4/4/13
All data now in one MyLibrary.xml file
Add author and title search buttons (repeated click gets next selection)

I was able to knock 63% off use of RAM with -Xmxn option (n=size). 2m is minimum.

example: in ROX, set run action to:
java -Xmx2m -jar "$@"

Here's a text editor I built that sorts alphanumerically or by line size to a "sort.txt" file. This one's only 8K. Create and save a new list from within the editor, or just copy over the file.

Updated: includes open, save as dialogs. Closing with exit button records last file, which opens on next session.
Updated: includes a line number sort.

Updated the sort editor with open file and save as dialogues. It's still about 12K, and runs fast even on my old dell. Also, it runs on everything I tested it on. I'm definitely rethinking the whole java thing.

Yep, that`s what drew me to it many years ago.
And it ( like C ) does very well in the portability department.

I was dismayed by the long learning curve, but it`s much like C.
It needs a really good class browser that has many search methods.

The other thing is... Does it compile to binary ( can`t remember ).

### The thought that I had...
Android is nearly a tablet + desktop O.S. ( amigo called it an interface ).
I`m thinking that making it desktop capable would kill Linux and Weeners.

There are great tools like Eclipse that make it quite easy. Eclipse will offer suggestions and insert code for you as you program. There's also a ton of help on the internet.

Yes...it writes "bytecode" to the Java Virtual Machine

Interface, as in extension vs replacement sounds correct. The JVM still doesn't exploit the individual computer's hardware (graphic card, etc) very efficiently. There's currently lots of development going on, so things should only improve. For programmers, it's a tool you can really sink your teeth into.

jpeps,

What's the conflict with jwm? Joe is currently working on jwm and has written some java stuff too, so he should be able to fix it.

Text entry loses focus, and you can't get it back.

jpeps,

Do you mind trying the latest version and see if it continues? You'll have to compile it. http://joewing.net/projects/jwm/snapshots/jwm-652.tar.bz2 , direct link to source

Ok, I see it too, Even Joe's program (ShareBrowse.jar) doesn't work. I'm sure his geek pride will want that fixed.
