Adaptive Container Components added to control library

Having one layout/component definition which adequately reacts on different sizing scenarios - this is what adaptive layout is about. We now added some new components to enable this within our CatptainCasa Enterprise Client, built with Java FX.

Take a look here: http://www.CaptainCasa.com/ac.html - also including a short demo video. Development still is going on, so adaptive concepts will be also injected into the various grid components.

Application Datapool Manager was extended by OpenUI5 based client

In addition to the fully featured Java client we now also added an HTML5 based client for our demo application "Datapool Manager". This client allows the user to view and edit data within some defined data structure within the browser:

The client internally adapts its layout to the physical device of the screen - i.e. it renders differently when being started on a mobile device:

Demo Application: Datapool Manager - Sharing loosely structured data

For internal communication between ourselves and our users/customers we wrote an application "Datapool Manager" - allowing to define spreadsheet-like data to be shared across users belonging to different organizations. Possible purposes are:
  • Task lists
  • Collection of any information / analysis result
    • ...equipment list
    • ...requirements list
    • ...list of attendees
...the tpyical issues where you are used to defining a central Excel file and share it "somehow".

Items are tracked (who changed what?), attachments can be added in a simple way and users can discuss / add comments on items.

The client is an FX based program. The server side is a Tomcat server.

Post processing of panoarama photos - FX based tool "Horizon Straightener"

...well, this is some private project - but you may use the results, if you like what I am doing here. (Terms of use: just use it!)

You may stitch certain photos to form a panorama using software like e.g. Microsoft ICE (Image Composite Editor). There are other tools available, search the Internet for "stitch panorama"... The result of stitching quite often is a panorama, in which the horizon is not perfectly straight. The effort you then have to spend to straighten the horizon is always quite some hell.

This was the reason, why I wrote a JavaFX based tool to simplify this process.

Before - after straightening Screenshot

In the tool you can draw a new horizon line in a simple way - the whole image will be re-arranged using this new horizon line.

Please feel free to use the tool, if you want to use it. Installation is available here: http://captaincasademo.com/horizon/setup_launcherfx.exe

Some documentation is available here: http://captaincasademo.com/horizon/20150619_PanoramaHorizonStraightener.pdf

The tool comes as .exe-setup program for Windows. The default installation location is your user's local directory. Please do NOT install it in Windows/Program Files! The installation contains "everything" that is required to run the tool (including the Java runtime).

Forgive me for not providing a MaxOS installer yet - it's just my lazyness...
