JavaConnect := Java asSmalltalkValue

Nice project: JavaConnect is a Visualworks Smalltalk library that allows a seamless interaction between Smalltalk and Java. A Smalltalk application can access any Java object and send messages to it, just as if it were a Smalltalk object.

Read more at the JavaConnect project page:

Would be interesting to know how this relates to Joachim Geidels JNIPort project.

Seaside and SVG

The SVG project for Seaside is moving forward. It now also includes an example for rendering charts and a Mondrian graph. Meanwhile also the Mootools for Seaside got ported from VW to Squeak.

Here is a screenshot (click to enlarge):

Seaside and SVG

Want to use Seaside to generate Scalable Vector Graphics? At the beginning of April Gerhard Obermann asked for an SVG package on the seaside mailing list.


Meanwhile the project started. Interesting to see that there is a good infrastructure for people to collabroate and work on new Smalltalk stuff.

XUL for Seaside

Pavel started a new project: SeasideXUL. It allows you to generate XUL
using using Seaside as the Smalltalk web application framework.

Browse the screenshots and code, download a Squeak demo image or read more here...

Seaside for Java

Seaside is now available for Java too:


A little bit more complex and larger download but rember to
evaluate "Date today printString" in Smalltalk first ;)
