Hi,

I assume Griffon uses some UI builders which Groovy community love, but my question is does Griffon use native libraries on windows / mac / linux ?


or is it done by plugin ?


cheers

Griffon supports native libraries from the core itself. This means you can place platform specific jars and native libraries following a convention and the framework will pick them up. Currently supported platforms are: windows, linux, macosx and solaris (all 32bit versions).

Cheers,
Andres

Thanks,

It seems that Griffon is nice & robust product even it still doesn't have version 1.x ( the current one is 0.2.1 )

Cheers,
Kuba

Well, considering it is based on the lessons learned by the Grails team and community (5 years) plus more than 10 years in Swing land combined by the Griffon team, yes :-)
Stay put for a future release (0.3) in the next week or so.

Cheers,
Andres

No, they are not. Griffon development is done with pure open source spirit, i.e, on our spare time.

Cheers,

Is Griffon a rich UI framework? Is it comparable with Flex?

Thanks.

Griffon is a desktop/RIA framework. It lets you build applications that can be deployed in applet, webstart or standalone mode, and as such you can embed them in abrowser if nedded.

Cheers,
