Now I have a web application with some text output.
It’s time to find The Front-end Framework!
Create an issue tracking system inspired by Jira™.
Actually, same as Jira™, but with improvements:
- Completely based on file system:
- Simple and transparent back-ups, cloning, and everything what file system is good for
- Easy to setup, repair or monitor with existing tools
- Version tracking using git™
- Use only open and well-community-supported frameworks for everything
- Add features, missing in Jira
- Rename attachments
- Meta for attachments (description, dates)
- Move comments between issues
- Edit comments meta (creation date, etc.)
- Move attachments between issues
- Search by file name and description
- Improved previews and thumbnails for attachments (for example PDF thumbnails)

- Always have up-to-date Facebook events, which I’m attending to, in my calendar (I use Google Calendar)
- Additionally sync to other calendar-related services, like Doodle
- Use LAMP server to update (import-export) calendar
This is a draft. Research phase.
Project (in Eclipse)
Create new Maven project or open a Java project and add Maven Nature to it.
When you add new dependencies to the project (in pom.xml), Eclipse automatically downloads all required libraries (in JAR files) into Maven repository and sets appropriate links to the files in the project build path.
So the application can be started directly from Eclipse in standard way: Use “Run as Java application” menu item for your main class.
We will not use “Export to runnable JAR file” function of the Eclipse to create a JAR for our application. We will create this file using Maven ‘install’ goal instead. Continue reading
SWT and QT are excluded from the review because they’re not pure Java and require special installation of native components/libraries.
My old Windows project DevCalc is now open source.
