Originally I had titled this item "Afwul Windowing Toolkit", but then I decided to look up the dictionary definition of abstract. It's one of those words, like its close relative virtual, that we (programmers) like to use a lot using our own private (to our group) definition, but what else does it mean?
Here are some definitions courtesy of yourDictionary.com
I always thought that the abstract in AWT referred to meaning 4, which is closest to our programmer definition, but maybe the joke's on us and did the original designers (and I use the term loosely) of AWT have meanings 2, 3 and 6 in mind
As you probably guessed from the above, I did a little work on AWT support. Here are two trivial test apps that I got working:
AwtTest.java. Getting FontMetrics, Graphics and Frame insets working.
FlowLayoutTest.java. Button, TextField, Label, Panel, FlowLayout and BorderLayout. Also helped me figure out how ambient properties (don't) work.
Please note that only a very small percentage of AWT is implemented at the moment, so don't expect any useful applications to actually work.
What else is new?
BTW, the included classpath.dll contains a few Classpath AWT patches that haven't been committed to Classpath CVS yet.
Updated the binaries and source snapshots.
I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts.
In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question
is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.
Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the
one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
