PostPosted: Thu 17 May 2012, 17:55    Post subject:  JAVA apps for PUPPY run in JRE/JDK/OpenJRE/OpenJDK  

Many community members may not know what JAVA does. For those reading this that don't know, briefly, I share "JAVA has always been a method of have a single program which will run ANYWHERE that JAVA exist." That's its intent. In Microsoft and Apple, JAVA is built into the system and users don't have a need to choose JAVA before using any JAVA application. In many/most cases, a user does NOT KNOW when they may be running a JAVA app because it Just Works! Essentially, a JAVA app which runs in JAVA in Puppy also run on Microsoft-Apple, too; and vice-versa. I am no programmer, but, this benefits 32bit and 64bit users as well.

In the last 2 months, several PUPs are now including a JVM for this very reason....useful for all members with little to NO system impact during system's operation. For the benefit to PUP users, we will probably see this subsystem showing up to the benefit of all users.

If you are using a PUP that has a JVM (JRE/OpenJDK/JDK for example), then one or all of the following could be useful to you.
  • muCommander - a very useful FM allowing side-by-side viewing of different foldess (PET from @DPUP5520)
  • AngryIP - a easy to understand and use IP discovery tool from the World's Faster LAN/IP acanner (PET from @DPUP5520)
  • IP monitor - will provide continual monitoring of your externally assigned Internet IP address assigned from your ISP (PET from @DPUP5520)
  • LibreOffice - a full featured Office package that understands most/all different document formats(PET from @01Micko)
All of these packages work in each of the PUPs I have tested. But, I have ONLY tested with the JRE that either came with the PUP distro or was installed from #Pemasu's PPM download site.

Should you have any JAVA apps that you want made known, post your experience here.

There's a lot more java apps at http://java-apps.org/ and a good selection on sourceforge.net (enter java as search parameter).

Explore and enjoy! Smile

PostPosted: Tue 07 Aug 2012, 04:58    Post subject: Using JAVA apps that work in Puppy  

I find that Java apps tend to be slow loading up on my old Pentium3. Nevertheless, I have a couple of Java programs that I keep because they seem to fill a special purpose:

Stuck Pixel Sweeper --monitor repair utility
CharMap -- insert special symbols in text

I wrote about Stuck Pixel Sweeper earlier this year in the Utilities section. It really is a special purpose app that one isn't going to use very often, but will tuck away for when it is needed.

A character map is very useful from time to time when writing documents. I have yet to find one that is made for or adapted for Puppy surprisingly enough.... maybe there are some... I haven't made an exhaustive search.

Slow due to double buffering. This could be changed to make better use of the OS's graphic card:

Hi, folks.

If you need a flexible collections manager, this version of DataCrow was launched last Sunday : http://www.datacrow.net/. It's a big download (67 Mb), but it's mentioned on the website of its competitor, Tellico, for Linux distros that don't have a KDE environment, I presume. So it has to be good.

I didn't do anything much with it, but it does work well in Puppy. Java is required, of course.

BFN.

Impressive! It even does online searches, adding all technical info for selected items into your personal database.

Here's another: JGnash. Besides financial accounts, has a portfolio manager that updates securities.

Hello, all.

(Sorry for the inconvenience: for some reason, the url brackets are not doing the expected job tonight.)

Here are two java* applications which I discovered, that specialize in PDF files.

PDFsam is an applications to split and merge PDF documents.
Download: url]http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfsam/files/pdfsam/2.2.2/pdfsam-2.2.2-out.zip/download[/url]
General site: url]http://www.pdfsam.org/[/url]

jPDFbookmarks will help you bookmark your PDF doc.
General sourceforge page: url]http://sourceforge.net/projects/jpdfbookmarks/[/url]
Help page: url]http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/jpdfbookmarks/index.php?title=Main_Page[/url]

Along with the poppler applications and libraries,
url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poppler_(software)[/url]

PDFEdit,
url]http://pdfedit.cz/en/index.html[/url]

and the default PDF viewer and creation utilities found in all Puppies,

the two PDF processing applications above may save you a bundle, as compared to

Acrobat XI Pro ( +/- 285 Euros or 380 $CAD).
url]http://www.adobe.com/fr/products/catalog/software._sl_id-contentfilter_sl_catalog_sl_software_sl_mostpopular_fr.html[/url]

No thanks necessary! It's just the combined magic of opensource, and of the patience to query the Web! Wink

* A recent java JRE is needed to run those two applications.

Piggydb: A little, interesting digital assistant
Quote:
...Very often, the main problem with computers and the Internet is not creation, or even discovery, of data or whole documents; it is to generally make sense of all those things and, above all, of their more or less evident connections. Today, I'd like to introduce you to a little piece of free software that tries to make this very task a bit simpler.

...Piggydb is a Java application aiming to become "a flexible and scalable knowledge building platform that supports a heuristic or bottom-up approach to discover new concepts or ideas based on your input." Quite a mouthful, isn't it? In plain English, this means that some day, Piggydb should semi-automatically discover, or at least make much more visible, connections among pieces of information that the user didn't declare or know about when he or she first fed them to the software. This continuous, ever-improving self reorganization of data should help users discover new ideas and generally be more creative.

... Don't let buzzwords and long-term roadmaps mislead you. In its current state, Piggydb already is an interesting combination of outliner, diary, notebook and personal wiki. It's definitely worth a try, in my opinion, by everybody working with lots of interrelated, mostly textual content.

... Piggydb is available as a stand-alone desktop application or as an "all-in-one" package. The latter is a web server accessible by any browser, even remotely, and that's the version I tested and show here.

Both variants will run everywhere Java is available. The installation procedure on Linux, however, at least for the all-in-one package, is just a bit more work than it seems from the web site....

There have been several recent updates for Puppy by its developers. There are JAVA SFSs and JAVA PETs of current JAVA releases.

PostPosted: Fri 11 Jul 2014, 09:24    Post subject: muCommander  

Hi everybody,

Since the muCommander projects is dead (the project is no longer updated) I have started my fork. Perhaps it will be helpful for Puppy.

Main features and changes:
- Find files dialog
- Improved text viewer and editor with syntax highlighting, undo/redo, and caret position store, history of recent files
- Directory size calculation on F3 key
- Improved image viewer. Now muCommander supports the following image formats: png, gif, jpg, bmp, wbmp, ico, psd, tga, tiff, pnm, pbm, pgm, ppm, scr.
- Internal PDF viewer
- HEX viewer
- Search history
- Built in programmers calculator (like Dos Navigator)
- Symlink editor and creator
- Hotkey F2 to run terminal
- Fixed keyboard shortcuts for Mac OS
- Some performance optimizations
- Fixed a lot of bugs
- A lot of minor improvements

I plan to develop the project in the future.
