Glimmer is a JRuby API for SWT that takes advantage of the expressive Ruby
language to provide a simple user-interface DSL (domain-specific
language). Developers can rely on Glimmer to build the presentation layer
of desktop applications in Ruby while keeping the business logic in Java,
or alternatively do complete desktop application development in Ruby.
Glimmer comes with built-in data-binding support to greatly facilitate
writing maintainable and testable desktop application code.
In an upcoming webinar, Andy Maleh will introduce Glimmer, demo the latest
features by contrasting the code of an application written in both Glimmer
and classic SWT, provide a quick update on the status of the project and
finally, have a Q&A and feedback session.
