Subject Preview of the DHTMLX viewer for Apache Isis
Date Thu, 04 Apr 2013 08:28:03 GMT
Mylaensys (Madytyoo and chums) have just blogged [1] about their viewer for
Isis based on the DHTMLX Javascript widget library [2].

The post provides a bunch of tech details along points to a simple example
you can play [3] with running on Google App Engine.

Apart from looking rather pleasant, what's notable about this viewer is the
fact that it supports a DSL allowing the UI to be easily customized.
 Thanks must go to Marcius Brandão and colleagues for their prior work on a
Naked Objects view language [4]  (and as implemented in their NO framework,
Entities [5]) for originally developing this idea.

One thing to note is that DHTMLX itself is licensed under GPL, which means
that there's no chance of this code ever being folded into the Isis
codebase.  But it's great to see Isis being used as a platform in this way.

Anyway, do check this new viewer out and post your thoughts here.

Cheers
Dan
