tmpio2 CVS module available

Mon, 17 Jan 2005 15:11:42 -0000

The draft IO module, tmpio2, is finally uploaded to the CVS repository. Please be aware that this is a temporary module to reach a more stable structure of the classes. Once that structure is settled, the work will move to a new module. This is done to avoid too much clutter in the repository.

To browse the module:

To check out the module with CVS:

cvs login

cvs -z3 co -P tmpio2


New license: LGPL

The project has switched from the GPL to the LGPL license to allow project developers to integrate the functionality in their work. This will further be emphasised by the split of this project into two packages: bookmark IO functionality and the GUI.

Project description

Sun, 18 May 2003 16:50:48 -0000

When using various Internet browsers and/or several computers, the user's bookmarks are easily lost or forgotten due to no central storage for bookmarks. Furthermore, the most common browsers, Netscape, Internet Explorer and others, store their bookmarks in very different formats, and although import/export features are avialable, they are usually too restrictive to transfare bookmars back and forth between different browsers. Also, administrating a large set of bookmarks is a daunting task, as websites change, move or dissapear. Especally when publishing your bookmarks online, it would be neat if they actully worked.

JBookmarks will make the life easier for people who often switch between browser and/or computers. JBookmarks will be an external application for storing and administrating your Internet bookmarks. Links should easily be dragged-and-drooped in and out between the program and you browsers (or other text editor where you want the link).

Secondly, JBookmarks should read and write the bookmark formats of the most popular browsers. So far, Opera, Netscape, and Internet Explorer is supported. The user should be able to import and export and part of the set of bookmarks to any format. Also, a HTML- publishing tool will be included, which special customizable features for links, colours etc.

Thirdly, for administrating the bookmarks, the program will feature expected drag- and-drop capabilities within the application and normal "folder operations". The user should also easily get feed back on changed, moved or removed bookmarked pages or sites. This means that the program will actively read the bookmarked pages to get more detailed information about the URLs.

Finally, further extensions could include: add support for more browsers, automatically search the Internet for moved pages or sites, integrate JBookmarks as a plug-in in various browsers (not very likely, and it would probably require another license as GPL is chosen).

The program will be written in 100% Java, and should be compatible with most system running this. However, drag-and-drop features are treated differently in all the browsers, so this could turn out to be one of the major challenges of the project.
