RE: About new desired features, for Jabaco...

Whoops! I accidently clicked "Report" instead of "Reply" on Sbleck above message. Sorry! Anyways, I think there is a real market for a mobile development RAD. Jacabo would be the perfect RAD for developing Android (Phone and Tablet) and Blackberry applications. On the desktop, there is a lot of competition for RAD's but for the mobile development field there are few options.

Some general thoughts on Jabaco from a practical viewpoint

Troberg, platform independant ActiveX is not realistically possible. I understand the love many VB developers have for ActiveX. I have many libraries I have purchased over the years that I'd hate to see go to waste and they are very nice. Fortunately, there is a large assortment of 3rd party libraries (from controls to report engines) for JAVA which could be incorporated into Jacabo: I think the real benefit to Jacabo is that it is mostly ...

A way to convert vb ocx a dll files to Jabaco

ActiveX is COM with the IDispatch interface. COM is basically a standard Windows DLL or EXE with exported functions that provide access to an interface called IUnknown (btw, an OCX is still just a DLL). Using IUnknown the host application can early bind to various interfaces provided by the COM or ActiveX component. When you bind to an interface you really are intantiating a class and reference the object's functions using function pointers. VB always did a wonderful job hiding all this complexi...

RE: Congrats on Jabaco!

I am thrilled to have found Jacabo. I have been playing around with it for a couple hours. Since I have programmed in VB6 for years and I also know JAVA it should be fun. Question: First couple hours with the app but, does this support Derby right off the bat? BTW, a good place to mention this program is on You can actually create a review of applications and components. That could be a source of a bunch of new users. BTW, someone mentioned about converting the Jacabo c...
