Swing RETRO application - MP3Tool - update

In the Swing RETRO application article, I wrote about my personal MP3Tool. When the tool was developed, the ID3v2 Tag was not very important and the cover image was not relevant. Now, every modern mp3 file has a cover or front or band image. The problem is that the "original" MP3Tool does not support images.

Because it is important for me, to change files with covers too, I decided to implement a simple image support. And during my research I found other features that are often used: Lyrics Tag and APE Tag. I have never heard about them. So I decided to implement at least delete support, for those Tags.

After some hours, the implementation was done. I was positive surprised about the source code quality, because the code is really old. It was amazing good.

The update version is available here and the version is now 2.2.

The tool is not a SIB Visions Tool.

Popularity of Single Sourcing solutions

Single Sourcing - what?

The Problem:
You develop an application for a customer that should run on Desktop, Notebook, Netbook, Smartphone and Tablet. You have to support different platforms, different screen sizes (resolutions), different network speeds.

The solution:
You need a technology that allows you to develop the application once and execute it on any device without changes to the application / source code.

Actual state
You develop the application multiple times, optimized for the target device. Of course you use the same business logic/middle-tier. Or you develop a web application (ajax, html) and distribute it without app stores, but have not the same usability as native apps.

There are many projects that offer multi-device support, e.g. PhoneGap, Appcelerator, Eclipse RAP, Adobe Flex

But did you know that JVx has Single Sourcing since 2008 - the time as single sourcing was not so popular.
The difference between JVx and all other technologies is, that JVx is a full-stack application framework. It has all components that are needed to develop data-driven applications. It is not just a development platform as all others.

If you are software developer and create database applications that should run as RIA or as html/ajax application - JVx is your friend. If you are not a software developer - VisionX is the right tool for you!

No other tool is faster for database-application development!
