JVx - Android - iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod)

Post to Twitter

JVx is written in Java and you can create Desktop Applications (Swing or QTJambi), Rich Internet Applications (Applet or Webstart or Ajax/HTML) and Mobile Android Applications. You develop an Application once and start it with different technologies - Single Sourcing!

But what about the iPhone?

Native iPhone apps are written in Obective-C, C or other supported programming languages. Java is not supported - at the moment.
We are currently developing iOS AddOns that makes it possible to create native iOS apps which uses JVx business logic. The AddOns includes object serialization, connection handling and simple model implementations.

Develop your JVx Business Application, use the same source code for your Desktop and/or Web Application and use the same business logic for your Mobile Device(s).

One framework for different plattforms and different technologies.

And everything is Open Source!

Source Code Repositories

Post to Twitter

The source code of JVx is now hosted on SourceForge!

As a little bonus, we gave following packages in the repository:

  • JVx Core
  • JVx Android AddOns
  • JVx Swing UI
  • JVx QTJambi UI
  • JVx Web UI
  • JVx Flex client and server (proof of concept)

And finally, we decided to release the complete source code of our JVx .NET AddOns. The source code was not yet available and is still in development.

We look forward for many helping hands!

JVx SwingUI extensions

Post to Twitter

JVx defines a technology independent User Interface, with Interfaces. Each technology has to implement this interfaces for its components and controls, to be compatible with JVx. We have implemented all this interfaces for Swing.

In addition we have created some swing components with special features for business applications. This components are simple extensions to existing swing components and are supported from any Look and Feel. They can be used in any swing application with or without the whole JVx framework.

We will show here some of this components:

  • DesktopPane with tab or frame mode

    Switch between tab and frame view, Closable tabs (works with java 1.5 and is LaF independent), Drag and Drop Tabs, Tab navigation with keyboard, Modal frames, Background image.

    Frames

    Frame mode

    Tab mode

    Tab mode

    Desktop Background

  • ComboBoxes with user-defined popup components

    A base implementation of a ComboBox called ComboBase. With this combo you can build your own ComboBox for e.g. input first and last name in separate fields. We implemented a date chooser and a table selector (header is:

    Date Combo

    Date Combo

    Table Combo

  • Table with load-on-demand model and ready-to-use cell editors/renderers

    A table which uses an IDataBook implementation as model (e.g. MemDataBook) and shows cell editors and renderers dependent of the cell data types, e.g. a table with image renderer and multiple choice editor/renderer

    Table with renderer and editor

    Table with renderer and editor

    Following editors/renderer are available: Text, Number (only numbers are allowed), Date, Multiple Choice, Image
