Including SWT Desktop Feature and Providing Pipe APIs for Comet Connection
We are very pleased to announce that Java2Script 2.0.0 release is available now. Please visit http://j2s.sourceforge.net/ for updates.
Comparing to previous 1.0.0 version, 2.0.0 has the following major features:
- Provide a new "SWT Desktop" for better window management with tray area, task bar and shortcut dashboard.
- Provide Simple and Compound Pipe APIs to setup Comet connection back to server.
- Supports Eclipse 3.4.* besides Eclipse 3.3.*.
- Add Google Chrome Supports.
Besides the above new features, we have fixed lots of bugs in
Java2Script compiler, Java core library and SWT library. Java2Script
2.0.0 is much more stable and it is ready for product.
In Java2Script's primary showcase web IM services ( http://webuzz.im/ ), Compound Pipe technology is used to provide multiple IM sessions using only one connection, and Java2Script's new SWT Desktop provides familiar desktop user experience for users. And we add another Java2Script demo: an SWT Tetris game ( http://demo.java2script.org/tetris/ ). For more Java2Script showcases, please visit http://demo.java2script.org/ .
