Bindows is the project I’ve been working with during the last year.
“Bindows™ is a Graphical User Interface Toolkit for writing rich client side web applications with the look, feel and behavior of modern Windows™ applications. Bindows applications are lightweight applications with zero footprint which means no installation required.”
Bindows is a Swing/WinForms like GUI toolkit and as a proof of concept I’ve created a new front end to the WebFX Dynamic Webboard using this toolkit. The backend uses the REST interface which I’ve hinted about earlier in the XML group at the WebFX Webboard.
There are also several more sample applications that you can test online or you can download the framework to play with it locally.
