Hi everyone,
I would like to publish a project called 'Java Application Markup Language', which would enable one to write
"<JFrame title="Test frame" defaultClosingAction="EXIT_ON_CLOSE">
<JPanel><JButton text="Click me!"></JButton></JPanel>
</JFrame>"
instead of standard Swing syntax.
It would be therefore like XAML for .NET developers, but with a clean and Swing-inspired syntax.
But before it's usable state, It would be really cool if I could get feedback on this idea and maybe one could write an Eclipse plugin with a visual designer to help people new to Java and XML.
So anyone interested can attach his or her message here or send me a PM.

Hi,

Did you consider XUL framework? If you think along the lines of XUL, I think you can move faster.

Hi Abhishek,

yes, I'm still working on this. The codebase contains a functional parser so far, and there are some wiki pages.

Looking forward to hear from you,

Harry

Hi phil1234, yes I'm still working on this, but until now no one was interested, so the code is only on my private network and not accessible through internet. I would like to hear from you, but java.net does not provide any personal message (or I didn't found one). Do you have any E-Mail address or some other contact data?

Hi, you can email me on philipp.kehrbusch@web.de
This would be the first project I am working on, so I don't know exactly how to upload it on the servers, I hope you do :)
