Action Support in JSR296
I was looking at the wiki:
It looks like the JSR296 action support has a lot of overlapping
functionality with work that has already been done in the GUI Commands
It's a nice framework. Instead of using the editing windows shown in
the wiki screeenshots, I use an XML file to specify the icons, names,
tooltips, accelerators, etc. for the commands. I can then use factory
methods to create menus, toolbars, buttons, etc. Gui Commands has a lot
of good ideas for action management that could be incorporated into the
action framework for JSR296.
The point is I would not want to loose any functionality if I switched
to JSR296. I'm not sure it would be practical to use both action
frameworks in the same application. If JSR296 were a superset of the
functionality in GUI Commands, I would be happy.
On another note, at the top of the GUI Commands webpage are links to two
JavaOne presentations from 2002. Can anyone find the .pdf files for any
of them? Apparently, they were taken down.
