That's quite an impressive application, but being a HiveMind + HiveTools
blueprint it really requires at least JavaDocs inside.

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...)
