I will be writing about lessons-learned as I move through
the implementation of Shoes on Jruby.. known as Brown Shoes.
Repo – What’s what where
The Brown Shoes Repo is at : https://github.com/shoes/shoes/tree/brown_shoes – a branch on Shoooes Github project.
Right now there are two parallel implementations within
the brown_shoes branch.
At ./lib/shoes is the Eclipse SWT Library implementation.
This is using the expected event-loop main-display and
native SWT widgets.
At ./lib/brown_shoes is the Java/Swing implementation.
JFrame, JPanel, and a bit of AWT as necessary.
There are some issues found on the Pivotal Tracker for
Brown Shoes https://www.pivotaltracker.com/projects/444909
We need your help!
There are details about running SWT or Swing apps that
completely befuddle the newbie in this Jruby/Shoes
business. (namely.. ME!)
If you are a seasoned Jruby, Java/SWT, Java/Swing… or
maybe just JAVA developer, and have interest and a few
hours to spare, your expertise would be GREATLY
