RaptorCanvas Project Picked Up By Sun

Wednesday July 7th, 1999

Edward J. Burns of Sun has some good news on the RaptorCanvas project (embedding Gecko in Java).

Edward writes, "On April 25th, it was reported here that Kirk Baker successfully embedded the raptor layout system into a Java Application and called it RaptorCanvas. Today, I am happy to report that Kirk and Ian are collaborating with a team in the Java Software organization from Sun Microsystems to contribute this work to The team at Sun is a part of the Netscape-Sun alliance and is working on the RaptorCanvas project and other projects aimed at more smoothly integrating the Java platform with mozilla. At present, no schedule information is available, but Sun and Netscape are in talks to explore exactly how and where to make the work available. The current plan is to make the core RaptorCanvas code available under the NPL."

Tech brief here. QNX is looking for those who want to beta test the QNX/AmigaNG developer OS can sign up for free x86 beta software. They're looking for those who want to port apps--like Mozilla--to NG Amiga in particular.

"A brief glimpse: massively scalable, multi-threaded, fault-tolerant, realtime OS designed for devices and computers of any type or size. QNX provides a unique network architecture where large full-service protocol stacks aren't required on each computer and devices plugged into the network are simply "discovered" automatically by other devices - all services and peripherals of the new device can then be used by any other device in the network. QNX is also the only self-hosted RTOS where the development environment and the runtime target environment are the same."
