Old What's New
I have been written many applications such as MailBrowser and WWWBrowser (called SmallWalker) in Smalltalk. Now, I am trying to port them on Java, but I found that AWT is very poor, especially TextComponent, to port my applications. So, I have decided to write Widget Classes that have rich functionalities enabling my applications to be ported on Java.
My Widget Classes called KFC (Kazuki YASUMATSU's Foundation Classes) currently support following components:
All components are lightweight components written in 100% pure Java and compatible with AWT components. They also have many enhanced APIs.
TextComponent and its subclasses (TextArea, TextField) are the most enhanced components and they have following features:
TextComponent and its subclasses are powerful enough to implement word processors and HTML browsers/editors.
This KFC release includes jar file (kfc.jar), its sources (src.zip), and the API documents.
KFC may works on JDK 1.1 or later. However, JDK 1.1.4 or before have some bugs about handling lightweight components. I highly recommend to run KFC on JDK 1.1.5 or later.
KFC also works on Java2(JDK1.2).
Please add kfc.jar and examples directory to your CLASSPATH and try examples.
