Subject Announcement: HiveBoard 0.1.0 first release out!
Date Sun, 22 May 2005 15:26:56 GMT
Dear HiveMind users,

I am very glad to announce the release of HiveBoard 0.1.0, a shared online
whiteboard system based on HiveMind and the HiveMind Utilities project.

One could see this project as a "HiveMind & HiveMind Utilities in Action"
project, since it demonstrates most of HiveMind Utilities modules usage.

The original announcement on SourceForge follows.



Announcement on SourceForge:
	HiveBoard 0.1.0 released!

We are proud to announce a first preview release of the "HiveBoard"
application on SourceForge.

The HiveBoard project aims to build a distributed shared whiteboard system,
particularly useful for meetings between remote teams (eg: in offshore
development). It is 100% built in Java, based on a client/server
architecture. Version 0.1.0 has the following highlights:
- Server running on Jakarta Tomcat 5 and using MySQL 4.0
- Communication transport based on http (ensures usability through
- Secure access to authorized persons only
- Storage of whiteboards in DB (to allow meetings to be interrupted and
resumed later)
- Rich graphical client application, easy to setup and use, running on Java
JRE 1.4 or later, allowing free docking of views inside the main window
(according to the user wishes)
- Several graphical tools available: free-hand pen, eraser, oval, rectangle,
text. Color, line thickness, font type and size can be changed.

Technical highlights:
- Server is Servlet 2.3 compliant and is based upon the following
	- "Inversion of Control" (HiveMind container)
	- iBATIS SqlMaps for "low-level" database access
	- Caucho Hessian protocol for remote communications over http
	- HiveTranse for high-level transaction management and
HiveMind-iBATIS integration
	- HiveLock security framework for HiveMind
	- HiveRemoting for Hessian-HiveMind integration
	- HiveEvents for events notification
- Client uses the following techniques/libraries:
	- Swing for all graphical aspects
	- HiveMind
	- HiveRemoting for remote access to the server
	- HiveEvents for events notification
	- HiveGUI for all GUI management (menus, docking, commands...)
