Hi,
this seems to be a really great framework. I always tried to do something similar, but it was quite difficult to get resources for it.

The framework seems to be easily separateable into a client/server architecture. Are there any plans to support running the UI as a generic client?

I would love to see some more information and even more if I would be able to try out the initial contribution Wink

Keep up the great work!
Thanks a lot,
Christian

Client/server can take a variety of forms...

One could write an HTML/JavaScript or Flash renderer.

Or one could write an SWT/RCP client. Just use Sapphire XML binding to serialize your model and then toss it to a web service. Use the same Sapphire model on the server side to load the incoming XML payload and process it further.

Or if there is sufficient bandwidth one could set it up such that every property read/write request goes to the server. Might be a good architecture if you want to give ability to suspend and resume a session across different devices, but don't want to have a browser-based client.

Code access will come soon after the Sapphire project is fully created. I will also be blogging further about different aspects of Sapphire in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned,
