Ogre on IBM Lotus Notes 8

Post by okki » Mon Apr 02, 2007 5:30 pm

IBM Lotus Notes 8 (Hannover) is based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform.
So what to do with Eclipse and Java? Yes: release an Ogre4j plugin :)

See the results on YouTube

Maybe to preview attached AutoCAD files or something like that.

Lotus is quite good in defining workflows. Some possible Use-Cases:
- PDM (ProductDataManagement) Integration
- Collaboration (SameTime Services) and approval processes
- an "AutoCAD"/whatever Fileviewer
- ....

Post your ideas!

That is soo cool!

Eclipse has a great foundation for pretty much all authoring work, and if I get time I would want to integrate my client with it. Currently I'm adding authoring functionality in-client, using CEGUI, which takes time since a lot of the widgets and editing functionality that's needed needs to be created by hand. It would be great to embed it in Eclipse, using the Eclipse framwork for all authoring and keeping CEGUI for the players.

Oops... fixed: now it states "Coming soon" :wink: Please wait for the upcoming master thesis one of us has written about ogre4eclipse.

great, very happy to see an eclipse-plugin coming up...

any idea when you are going to release this?

sorry, maybe I somehow missed it, but where is the web-site where you put ogre4eclipse or the "coming soon" comment, respectively?

Thanks!

This means the Ogre4J is getting much further along? Or is only a small portion of the Ogre API wrapped to accomplish this?

Some time ago we started a light JNI wrapper for Ogre but stuck there with version 1.0.6. The old libraries are still available at http://www.ogre4j.org.

With release 1.0.7 we started to switch to some kind of auto-generation of the JNI bindings using Doxygen and XSLT and after recognising that this idea could be of interest to anyone who tries to wrap C++ classes into Java we started xbig.sf.net. While we're still focusing internally on Ogre we hope to support any C++ API out there (in the near future :) ).

You can take a look at the active process on the Subversion repository of XBig. When we're able to compile the Ogre sources with the JNI support we'll update the Ogre4j API again.

It's already based on Ogre 1.2 compiled with the XSLT Stylesheets. But: we had to deactivate some of the more complex classes in the configuration. There are still three test cases open that Ogre relies on. Nevertheless it's already quite mature!

Lotus Notes is the emacs of email/groupware clients.

That's really cool, though.
