Confused about portability??

Are programs made with Jabaco cross-platform?

It says Jabaco executables will run on any platform that supports Java, but aren't controls like Winsock on Windows only?

Yes. So long you don't use the command called WinAPI. Because WinAPI makes use of [ MativeCall/ ], which gives the possibility to use Windows Native functions in Java - and so in Jabaco.

With Winsock I am not sure. But I think JasonS using it in some of his programs. And his programs running on Linux, too.

Btw: From the Jabaco-samples the Plotter Applet. Here is a screenshot of it running on Linux:


With Jabaco created programs are platformindependet. But sadly Jabacos Compiler and IDE need Windows.

Thank you. I know Jabaco is supposed to be cross platform, but Winsock having Win in the name gives me some doubts. Maybe it's a Winsock emulation, but it's a little hard for me to tell.

It would be nice if it's cross platform. Any confirmation on this? I can't really test at the moment. :(

Ow...that's quite amazing. Jabaco could use a different name for the control though. Thanks!

Hi,

The winsock control definetly works on all platforms I have tried... Slackware, Ubuntu, and OpenSuse Linux; Windows 2000, XP (32 & 64), Vista (32 & 64), 7 (32 & 64). MacOS and Mac OS X also have been tested. The only things I have had issues in general with is playing wav resources on one flavor of linux. Mac & Win and most versions of linux are fine w/ sound though. That isn't a control though :)

Reguards,
Jason
