TOPIC: Status of Java Suneido Server
#1670
Status of Java Suneido Server 8 Months, 3 Weeks ago
The Java version of the Suneido server is almost complete. I have more testing to do but it runs the tests and runs our applications.

The main advantages of the Java version of the server are:

- multi-threaded - takes advantage of multiple cores (the current implementation does not)

- portability - runs anywhere Java runs (e.g. Linux, Mac)

- 64 bit (on a 64 bit JVM) - faster with big databases

The code is available through SVN on SourceForge. I develop with Eclipse so that will be the easiest way to build it.

NOTE: This is just the server, not the client. The challenge with the client part is the user interface - currently it is Windows only. Porting the user interface to Swing or SWT will be another big job.

Thanks!

It was about 2000 hours over 1.5 years (started May 2008) working about 3 days per week on it.

A big job but worthwhile, I think. And it was fun :-)

Some interesting links about java and c++:

It's an attempt to convert java to c++ with a library that works quite well, DObject Library.

On the link bellow ther is the source for java2cpp:

One of the features that I found so much valuable in suneido is it's layout manager and recently I found a nice work in the same direction but using java:

designgridlayout.dev.java.net/
designgridlayout.dev.java.net/nonav/site/index.html

It's here as reference and as inspiration resource.

Thanks for the links, I will look at it

To make it easier to port our applications I am hoping we can make a Java layout manager that works the same way as Suneido does now.

Of course, this will depend whether we use Swing or SWT (or some other)
