Thanks for the great input guys. I'm gonna lean towards having to enforce Netbeans for the GUI part of the app. At least it generates code that can be interpreted (although not modified) by other IDEs. And it's free, so I don't have to go through the hassle of begging IntelliJ for an extra license every time a new dev comes in. If I understood correctly, Javabuilders doesn't have a visual builder yet, so it's a no-go.

Cheers,
Alejandro
Jigloo looks OK. I'll give that a try. Thanks.
Hi,

I'm leading an open source project and the issue has been brought, of how we're going to collaborate for the construction of the GUI. I don't want to enforce the utilization of a given IDE, but the default GUI builders/plugins are incompatible between themselves. Do you guys know of a free GUI builder plugin that I can use accross mayor IDEs?

I've also been looking for external (non-IDE bound) solutions like JFormDesigner, but I haven't found anything free or offering a special license for FOSS projects. I found FormLayoutMaker and others, but they haven't been updated in ages.

It's not that I'm a cheapskate by not wanting to buy something like JFormDesigner; it's just that I'd like to make things easier for anyone that wishes to contribute to the project...

Has anyone experience handling this issue? Or am I missing something?

Thanks,
Alejandro
Hi,

I'm looking for something that for example could make use of username and hashed passwords in a file, groups and their members + permissions in another file.
I don't know anything about JAAS, but it sounds like overkill. I might create a not so big class for what I need, but I just wanted to know if there's already something like this out there.

Thanks!

Hi,

I'm selling one 310 series voucher (exams SCJP, SCWCD, SCBCD, etc), at $100 dollars, plus certified mail expenses (30-40 bucks to the US I think, since I'm in Colombia). The voucher expires on 09/30/2007. The money would need to be transfered via paypal. Please contact me at alejandro.pedraza at gmail.com

Cheers,
Hello guys,

Maybe you can give me some clues on what can be wrong:
I downloaded from Sun the Java Media Framework, which contains the mediaplayer javabean, but I can't use it in Netbeans. It let itself to be correctly installed into the palette manager, but when I try adding the item to a JFrame it shows the following error:

"Cannot load component class javax.media.bean.playerbean.MediaPlayer from JAR file:C\Documents and Settings\Alejandro\Desktop\jmf-2_1_1e-alljava\JMF-2.1.1e\lib\mediaplayer.jar.
The class must be compiled and must be on the classpath of the project this form belongs to."

But the jar contains compiled classes and it is registered in the compile-time libraries of the project...

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers,
Alejandro
Ok thanks, I was thinking things would work like in a web container, but now I can see why that doesn't make much sense in the desktop.

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to make a jar for a desktop app, that contains itself a lib dir with other jars. I read in Sun's jar tutorial that I can't include those jars in the manifest's classpath, and that I must instead "write custom code to load those classes". This sounds a little inconvenient. What's the usual approach?

Thanks,
Alejandro

Looks like Derby is what I'm looking for. Thanks for the advice

Howdy,

I'm thinking about starting a swing app and I was wondering how to handle the data. I'm familiar with server-side relational DBs, but I'd like to know if you guys can recommend something light for the desktop, that I could redistribute with my app and that wouldn't need any extra config. I've read about SQLLite, which also stores everything in a single file, which is good.

Or perhaps an RDBMS is not an appropriate choice here? How do small swing apps usually handle persistent data?

Thanks,
Alejandro
