New Update fetaure in jMaki NetBeans plugin

Posted by carlavmott on June 21, 2007 at 12:24 PM PDT

The jMaki NetBeans plugin now has an update feature which automatically updates the version of jMaki that is included in your app. This means that the appropriate files are copied from the new release of jMaki into your

We just released jMaki .9.3 which contains a few bug fixes including one for the Flickr wrapper to access Flickr, changes to the Dojo editor wrapper and the initial release of the extension mechanism which allows behavior/functionality that are shared

Making jMaki service arg consistent

Posted by carlavmott on June 11, 2007 at 12:57 PM PDT

We are going through the jMaki widget wrappers making sure that they all are consistent in how they support the 'service' arg. The 'service' arg is used to provide data for the widget where the data is from an external source. This means that a URL is provided to the 'service' arg.
In many samples, we specify a JSP which contains the data.

jMaki widget data model explained

Posted by carlavmott on April 24, 2007 at 1:33 PM PDT

In jMaki, each type of widget (tree, table, menu ...) has the same data model regardless of the toolkit which provides the widget. This is a value proposition in jMaki which we believe very useful.

Presentation and lab material from the first jMaki day are now posted on line. This jMaki day was available to Sun internal folks only because we wanted to get feedback from a small group. The feedback was good overall but looks like we need to provide more details on data binding.
