I m working on the documentation right now.
Trying to write some tutorials on how to use the library.
I thought i will done by end of september but my job is really keeping me busy at the moment.
The first release will definitly come by end of this month(probably on google code)
I am also very interested to see this.
Work in progress, end of the month will definelty be the the release data
This sounds very promising. This may be a solution for customers who do not want to install a new version of Internet Explorer but are willing to install an application.
Annoncing Gwt4Air 1.0
It s been a long way but i m proud to annouce the release of Gwt4Air 1.0
Gwt4Air will give you the the ability to turn your gxt apps in to desktop apps using adobe air.
You can download the jar here http://code.google.com/p/gwt4air/.
The first release is compatible with gxt 2.2, gwt 2.0 and adobe air 2. It includes the following features:
2) An adapter to make GXT works inside the air application sandbox
3) A pdf module to read and write pdf files.
4) A google maps module, so you can produce maps even when your web client is offline
5) An adapter to male RPC and RequestBuilder calls possible with AIR.
6) A sample app with source code that shows some examples. One of the example will show how you can export an GXT chart to pdf using gwt4air.
The next releases will add more and more features(check out the roadmap)
To get started please look in the wiki pages.
I hope you guys are going to like this and provide some good feedbacks.
For any question please feel free to contact me.
I just wanted to say thank you !
This is really some good peace of work. Exactly what i ve been looking for.
And looking at the roadmap is getting really interesting.
i saw that the license is GPL , what m i supposed to go if i do not want do distribuate the my source code ?
Any update on the license issue please? We really need this (specially the PDF Export part), but can not opensource our project.
we are also willing to pay some money if necessary.
Sorry i havent answered sooner. I m a bit busy trying to make gwt4air works with gwt2.1(which will be done soon). Also a licensing issue on the air core api i needed to fix. Version 1.1 will be out soon with all the fixes.
To your question:
First thanks that you appriciate the tool. Thanks to the other people who wrote me too.
I said here before that i m not an expert in software licensing. A friend a mine told me i should gpl it and i did it :)
Fact is, i also got a lot of post from people complaining about the GPL since they will hav to open source. So maybe i ll come up with another license with version 1.2
I m glad you guyz are willing to pay some money. But Commercial license is not in plan for now. But i think we can find a way to make this work for you. Just send me a PM.
Gwt4Air 1.1 is out.
this version now supports GWT 2.1, GXT 2.2.1 and adobe AIR 2.5 and provides
the following features among others:
Bug fix in the NativeProcess API
Bug Fix in the DisplayObject API
Bug Fix in the 3D Map API
a new example showing how to communicate with a native process
a SoundUtil class to easely handle sound. So you can do something like this
Like always feedback are verry welcome.
