LinAlg API tutorial A simple tutorial on how to use LinAlg API and its various classes can be found in the documents/file section at linalg.dev.java.net. This is a simple tutorial that convers the basics and does not show all capabilities of LinAlg API.
An Experiment at the beginning When i started developing LinAlg API it was just personal interest and a sort of experiment. Is it possible to write a simple-to-use API for Vector and Matrix operations? Well, the answer seems to be: Yes. Then, i decided to add Complex number functionality and to keep scope of LinAlg API features to a minimum. There are of course other such APIs for vector and...
OpenSource: A definition To begin with my thesis i would like to provide a definition of opensoucre software since some people might have a different concept of it. Under OpenSource software i understand any software that is either released under the GPL and / or GPL equivalent license. According to this definition most projects at this page and most of the Apache projects are opensource software...
Somewhere deep down in the API forrest... In the beginning there was Swing as a subset of AWT with a huge array of features for GUI programming. Ok. Now we have JavaFX, Swing-X, Fuse and the Swing Application Framework. Now, from the developers point of view its nice to have this kind of choice of many APIs available for GUI programming yet whats missing is a kind of overview what API to choose...
My First JavaFX Cup This weekend i was experimenting with JavaFX in order to see how i could use it for my ADI project. And after some working demos and self experiments i came to the conclusion: wow, thas really a cool thing. The thing i love most of JavaFX is that it really speeds up productivity and it can be used for web and mobile apps. A tiny Bug in the Tutorials There is a tiny bug in the...
LinAlg Mobility Toolkit Usually i blog in the JDK Blogosphere so LinAlg API may not be known to the mobility world. LinAlg API is a J2SE API for linear algebra and is currently under strong development for different platforms in particular for the desktop. However, i was experimenting with the idea of porting linalg to the mobile platform and it worked. So there is now a linear algebra API...
OpenJDK: Partial classes in Java While i was working on a Visual C# project build with Visual C# Express 2005 i was flying over the C# syntax features. One interesting thing is the possibility to define so called partial classes that is a class definition that is distributed over several sources files. Yes you are reading right, source files. Microsoft did introduce this to make distributed team...
LinAlg API Demos update I have provided new demos for LinAlg API with sources for donwload in the document/files section under linalg.dev.java.net. Now there are 4 demo apps available written with NetBeans GUI Designer: Pascal ComplexCalculator Square Angle Converter Pascal is a demo app for Vector operations, Complex Calculator for complex numbers, Square for Matrix operations and...
Connected all over the world One thing thats most important is that the number of broadband internet access computers is growing and the world is getting more and more connected. Another important thing is that it doesnt matter wheather you are using a Desktop PC, a laptop or a Mobile phone: almost all services are available on these distinct plattfroms and can almost easily be shared and...
64 Bit rocks A first 64 Bit version of LinAlg API for Windows Vista 64 Bit is available. If you want to compile it yourself you need a 64 Bit JRE and Compiler with Java 6 installed. I will also provide some demos for this 64 Bit Version.
