Dekstop Enhancements for Groovy

Why Griffon?

What's in Griffon?

New Feature Development

  • <b>UberBuilder</b> - a compositing FactoryBuilderSupport class, which allows seamless merging of existing Builders
  • <b>GUIBuilder</b> - An UberBuilder with SwingBuilder, SwingXBuilder, and GraphicsBuilder pre-loaded.

Groovy Core R&D for Desktop stuff

Quicker cycling and more risky experemental changes to some core Groovy classes will be done here as well

  • <b>FactoryBuilderSupport</b> - needed changes for UBerBuidler to work
  • <b>SwingBuilder</b> - needed changes for UberBuidler to work

Future Directions

There are lots of things Griffon could move into, for example

  • A home for the multiple GUI builders for Groovy, It may be worthwhile to merge SwingXBuilder, JIDEBuilder, and GraphisBuilder under a single code base (still with separate relases).
  • A desktop port of GORM could be hosted here
  • A desktop variant of the Grails/Rails project structure could be supported, with deployment to Applets, WebStart, or vanilla client Jar files.
  • No labels
