First impression on rbair's proposal

What can I say... well done! :-)

Ok, I haven't dvelved into the code muxh yet, but the Demos compile and
work, and the extra classes I see are a natural complection of what is
in the jndc CVS.

The DataModel stuff seems cool, and it's use seems straightforward.

I will start using this codebase now in my project, so that with use I
will be able to be more involved.

Just one question: why is this development not done on the main jndc branch?

Thanks :)

I started working on the incubator stuff before I was a committer to the project.

BTW, we're seriously looking at a Dec 25th timeline to get the DataModel stuff moved into the core code.

Cheers,
Richard

Hi Rich,

Sorry for such an obvious question (I've been out of the loop for a while) but what is the link to your incubator code?

Thanks,
Scott

Hey Scott, good to year from ya again.

that'll get you to the root of my incubator code. A lot of it was copied from JDNC-proper so I could hack it up. The important stuff is here:

https://jdnc-incubator.dev.java.net/source/browse/jdnc-incubator/src/jav...

There's also a webstart demo to run, which I haven't worked on in a while and is only 90% bug free, I think, at http://www.jgui.com/jdnc/masterdetail.jnlp

Looking at the generated code, I see that you are using the raw gridbag stuff. Are you aware of the packer.dev.java.net project? This is a recast of the gridbag api into a more brief form that eliminates the floating GridbagConstraints objects. You might consider dragging the Packer project into your codebase so that you could make the code more managable and readable.

IMHO Packer takes a topsy-turvy way of looking at. Adding a component
and then changing the constraints seems a bit odd. It's easy enough to
extend GridBagConstraints with chainable convenience methods, to get a
more conventional builder.

One example (plug) is at:
