Is anyone here experienced with the Echo2 Framework?

Basically, its a AJAX framework in which a developer writes a Java program (very similar to Swing) which gets rendered into DHTML, behind the scenes...

Its a competitor to the Google Web Toolkit

Reason I am asking is because I've been using it and need some assistance.

Thanks,

James

Mr. Pascarello,

Thank you for the reply..

Yes, I have tried there (if you enter the forum) you'll see my postings.

I just heard from a colleague that JavaRanch is the biggest Java user community on the web, so I figured I'd give the Big Moose Saloon, a shot.

Can I post my Echo2 related questions on the Big Moose Saloon (is anyone at this community using it, at all)?

Cheers,

JD

It is! And it's the best. But that doesn't mean that the members will be familiar with every 3rd party tool that out's there. Let's face it, there are thousands upon thousands.

Of course you can. But I personally know of no one using Echo2. I looked at it briefly, but once again concluded that frameworks promise too much and do too little (or sometimes, even worse, too much).

But the membership here is wide and varied... perhaps someone else is using it as well and will chime in.

Thank you for such kind words, Mr. Bibeault!

Hopefully, someone will answer my posting...

Echo2 is almost identical to Swing, but I don't know if I should post my questions in the Swing forum. Do you think I'll get more feedback, there?

Since your question is not on Swing, that would not be appropriate. Either this forum, or the Open Source Projects forum would be best.

But please be sure not to post the same question in more than one forum.

The only reason I mentioned Swing is because Echo is 95% identical to Swing.

I will adhere to your request and only post the question / topic once in either the AJAX (HTML & JavaScript) or Open Source forum.

Thank you,

JD
