Integrating GXT with Adobe AIR
Integrating GXT with Adobe AIR
A couple of months ago i started a personal project to enable GXT developers to be able to deploy their application inside adobe AIR.
the library is almost done and here are some of the features :
1) A FilesystemExplorer component that enable to browse local filesystem (see sreenshot)
2) An Adapter for GXT so there is no Securty Error from Adobe AIR (eval )
3) An Adapater to make GWT RPC possible inside AIR (You still can use normal AJAX though)
4) Export : GXT Chart to PDF, HTML, PNG
5) Export GXT Grid to EXcel
6) Drag and Drop from the OS to the App
7) and more to come....
and off cource the application still can run as a normal web app (Without the AIR functions)
The library is nt finische yet, but i m planing to relaseae it end of the month (Open Source and Free of course)
as a POC i build a lil application (See sreenshots)
I would like to have some feedback, to know if there are peoples out there, who need something line that(Hopefully i did nt word for nothing )

I m pretty new to GXT and to this forum.
I m doing some research for my company and and i saw your post.
What exactly is the purpose of your library ?
We have a customer, who would like to export the GXT Chart to PDF. Can you confirm that your library can do that ? How is that hapening ? on the server using a pdf library ? when exactly are you going to release ?
Sorry if i ask a lot of question.
It s because we really need this

The idea of the library is not really new.
I wanted to created a web application that can run on both: browser and desktop using the java language
I ve searched the internet and the forum on how to integrate gxt and adobe air. but i couldnt find a good solution, so i decided to start my own project.
the generated pdf was generated on the client using adobe AIR API. no Server involved. But this only work on the AIR client. If u wanted to generate pdf in the web app then u should use a server side technology.
Like i said in the post before the library will include some adapters to make GXT work inside AIR and some other utiliy tools(Notification for example..) It also include a Dev Mode for AIR so u cant debug your app inside AIR.
I hope i will release it by the end of the month, but i cant tell for sure , end of september is the target.
But i also dont want to release something people do not need or allready hav, that why i was asking for feedback.
Glad somebody has the need

Please go ahead with your development, I think the community will love it especially if it has good features and is open source. I am looking forward to its release.

as I see your project is wonderful. It will be great if the open source is available.
features will be very useful in all projects.
I'm waiting you impatiently....
