a Java GUI application programming framework

BISS-AWT is a java framework of about 150 Java classes for building graphical applications with state-of-the-art user interfaces. Instead of following the native lib based, "OS-native" look-and-feel (like Suns java.awt), it is implemented purely in Jave and has its own "Java-native" look-and-feel.

The framework can be extended without native library support (i.e. you can write your specialized versions of TextAreas, Checkboxes, Lists etc. without being forced to write your own, non-portable, native libraries).

It already has nice things like text editors, pop-up menus, notebooks, hierarchical Lists etc. without the need for a JDK 1.1 compliant native lib. The cross platform compatibility has been tested on a variety of different operating systems (Linux, BSD, NextStep, OS/2, Windows 95, ..).

Besides being useful as an add-on library for all standard Java AWT implementations, it can be used to build an own, stand-alone AWT that requires just minimal native library support. This distribution comes with a native layer for the kaffe-0.8.1 virtual machine.

As a proof-of-concept, there are also some tools included which form a Java specific IDE (integrated development environment, ClassBrowser etc.). These tools already can be used to do serious Java programming (BISS-AWT itself has been built with it). There even is a graphical layout generator which considerably eases the effort required to design complex dialogs).

The BISS-AWT comes with full sources (both Java and for the optional native library) and is distributed under a GPL-like license (please see file LICENSE.BISS_AWT for details). It is a vivid project which will be constantly improved (with respect to both the GUI and the IDE components).

Package version:0.87-1


biss-awt for DEBIAN

Before you first start some the BISS AWT programs, please execute
biss-awt-config to get the configuration files copied from
/usr/lib/biss-awt/config/ to ~/.biss.

To get this package compiled with the javac from jdk 1.1 I've to add
some stubs for extended interfaces.

I get some errors like this: Undefined variable: opc_invokeno


biss-awt (0.87-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Initial Release. (please test it!)
