Re: Networked version of Swing (X windows style)?



Thanks for the pointers, I will take a look at them.

Anyway the idea was to avoid having to install VNC, X11 or any other
product, as they have their own drawbacks. For example VNC transfers
bitmaps instead of GUI primitives, which makes it much slower.

The proposed approach has several advantages:
- Faster than VNC or, from what you say, than X11
- Smaller and cheaper
- Totally independent of client and server OS (that is the biggest
advantage)

The big disadvantage, of course, is that it would only be able to run
Java Swing applications.

Luis.
