Java CDEV is a library of Java classes which extends the capabilities of the CDEV Common Device control framework into the Java environment. Both applications and applets are supported, and a modular I/O structure allows interfacing to a wide number of control systems. Among the I/O services supported is a connection to the C++ cdevGateway, allowing access to all previous CDEV supported systems.
This software is still being improved, with changes mostly coming in the directory services. You may download a copy of the current release.
ADM is a awt based java package used for building Graphical User Interfaces on top of the Java CDEV layer. It contains awt-based java beans. These beans can be placed in an java application or an applet running within a browser. The application and the applet can be built by assembling the beans manually or visually using the commercial Java IDEs, such as Visual Cafe, JBuilder, PowerJ, VisualAge WebRunner etc. A step by step instruction for deploy custom JavaBeans into Visal cafe is provided.
The ADM package is still under development, and the latest version can be obtained here.
