(Showmedo is undergoing major changes. To report any problems viewing the videos please email us and include browser and OS specifics. Cheers - Kyran.)

In this first ShowMeDo on Java2Script Steven demonstrates what you can expect to achieve with this novel tool using the demo on their homepage.

Java2Script converts Java code to JavaScript automatically. As a plug-in for Eclipse, with Java2Script you can write an application in Java, make sure it works correctly and then with one click have it converted to JavaScript and have in working in your browser.

You get my vote ...

This was interesting, indeed!

This tool has single handedly reinvigorated my interest in the eclipse platform. I look forward to becoming familiar with Java2Script to strengthen my understanding of server technology service requests with Javascript.

This tool is quite unique and many thanks 'goto' Steven D. for being inquisitive and diligent enough to not only ask the question but to act on the concept that embodies his tool Java2Script.

Review of Introducing Java2Script

Tools like the Java2Script, converting Java to Javascript, will enable a more versatile and Return on Investment(ROI) friendly environment for the implementation of Rich Internet Applications(RIA).

Steven Devijver exhibits extreme depth in: critical analyzation, reasoning, and intuition/foresight with the creation of this tool. The fact that Steven decided to make the utility a plugin for the eclipse framework establishes the precept that he is thinking critically in terms foresight regarding cross platform deployment and resource management.

The video series moves a bit fast and should cover the implementation of the plugin in a little more depth. Getting and installing the tool in a visually centric fashion is an excellent way to get the concept across to the viewer, but some basic instruction and elaboration of the concepts of handling eclipse plugins, as it the process pertains to Java2Script, would round the series off nicely.

In final: anyone interested in general client-server technology, AJAX, Service Oriented Applications, and/or Rich Internet Applications will benefit from this tool.

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Steven
