Warrior Platform 0.94.1

The XAMJ project is pleased to announce the release of Warrior 0.94.1. Warrior is a platform/browser for XAMJ, a Java-based XML UI language. XAMJ is compiled on demand and uses Java scriptlets instead of a scripting language such as Javascript. This release introduces a platform API which allows developers to add clientlet selectors (new content type handlers) which could be used, for example, to make Warrior a browser for other XML UI languages. The API has also been refactored so that XAMJ is further decoupled from clientlets.... read more

XAMJ - Updated Documentation/Examples for 0.92

XAMJ 0.92 Released

XAMJ is a thin client language based on Java and XML. This release introduces several usability and deployment improvements:

- Added mechanism to link from HTML. It consists of
using a file with mime-type application/x-htln+xml
with a root element which has an href attribute.
(We will also be providing a mechanism thru our
website to make this easier.) This is passed to
Warrior as a file, which in turns opens the
target URL. (A XAMJ document over http runs
in a secure sandbox.)... read more

XAMJ - Added Examples Page

We have added a examples page here:

http://html.xamjwg.org/examples.jsp

It currently only has a few simple examples.
It should allow visitors to get a feel for
what XAMJ looks like without first downloading
Warrior.

XAMJ Project Available in CVS

The XAMJ Project codebase has been committed to Sourceforge's CVS repository. You can use anonymous cvs access to check it out. The project should preferably be checked out under the /opt/ directory.

We are within a week or two of the first official release. We'd just like to polish a couple things before we do that.

For those with Java knowledge, you can build the project either with the Ant script under XAMJ_Build or by creating an Eclipse workspace and importing existing projects XAMJ_Build, XAMJ_Reference_Engine and XAMJ_Public_API. To run from within Eclipse you need to add a VM argument: -Dxamj.clientlet.class.path=/opt/XAMJ_Project/XAMJ_Public_API... read more
