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 mozilla.org. 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."

So embedding Gecko into Java, how is this different from Jazilla?

BTW, NG Amiga, built on the QNX Neutrino real-time OS with Java2, has AmigaObjects, a transactional object environment that they say allows programmers to create powerful applications for any OS fast. Before you laugh, Amiga ( <http://www.amiga.com> ) is releasing a technical brief this week, and I will put the link to it up in this forum for anyone who's interested.
