Subject Re: GUI Development for Apache
Date Thu, 12 Jun 1997 19:06:05 GMT

My thoughts are that it is probably the one most visible item that 
we get beat up on in reviews and I have seen one Java interface 
that looks quite nice in it's early stages.

Rasmus made some good points in followup to this regarding the 
interface that the server provides. I'm proposing this discussion 
group mainly so that we (The Apache Group) can have some guiding 
hand in what we provide and pull together the fragments of people 
that are working on something. I also feel like I could provide 
more to this part of the project than I can to threading.

I think that a Tk frontend would be a good solution. Coupled with 
SNMP this could be a fairly portable interface to NT. (Haven't seen 
Tk on NT, but I hear that it works).
