Projects / tuipeer


TUIpeer works with the TUIAWT Java package, and together they provide a TUI (Text User Interface) look and feel for Java 1.0 and 1.1 applications. In addition, it supports multiple instances of java.awt.Toolkit, a prerequisite for a multi-user JVM. TUIAWT works by sending peer commands and receiving user interface events to and from the remote peer program. Communication with the remote peer program takes place over a socket connection.

      tuipeer and Java 2
      Java 2 has broken the AWT abstraction. (Boo! Hiss!) It is no longer possible to extend java.awt.Toolkit and work with the Java 2 AWT classes. The existing version of tuipeer will not work with Java 2.

      Workarounds for using text terminals with Java 2 include extending the undocumented sun.awt.Toolkit, rewriting the entire AWT package (e.g. BISS-AWT), or using an entirely different 3rd party API (several projects, including my EDX interface).
