Projects / JWt


JWt (Java Web Toolkit) is a library for developing accessible and interactive Web applications with an API that is widget-centric and inspired by desktop GUI APIs. To the developer, it offers abstraction of Web-specific implementation details, including graceful degradation. Under the hood, the library uses the latest techniques when available to handle events and update the user interface.

  •  28 May 2014 10:37

    Release Notes: This is mostly a bugfix and maintenance release.

    •  12 Mar 2014 21:28

      Release Notes: Twitter Bootstrap 3.1 is now supported in addition to version 2. A new WGLWidget was added, which implements GL-based 3D graphics, using either client-side WebGL or server-side OpenGL. The latter approach renders (using jogl) in an off-screen buffer, and can be used as a portable solution when WebGL is not available in the browser, or when scene complexity is so high that downloading the entire scene to a client is less efficient. A 3D Graphics Library was added to complement the existing 2D charting API. The wthttpd received several improvements from architectural changes, as well as performance improvements.

          Release Notes: Twitter Bootstrap was adopted as a new theme in addition to the existing CSS-based themes.
