Distributed Clipboard – GUI

The version increment from 0.0.2 to 0.0.3 brought alot new to the DistributedClipboard project. The earlier version of the GUI looked alot like an IM software. Altough it was a very early prototype it already showed tendencies in this direction. In the meantime, Martin sent me a GUI-study document describing a different and more exotic [...]

Distributed Clipboard – Communication

Jmdns turned out not to be the mdns implementation to use. I tried a very early version (1.0) and version 3.4. The interfaces didn’t change and and the update was easy, just one constructor has been interchanged with a static factory method.

Friendslist Msg Facebook

Nach der letzten Besprechung soll noch eine “Massennachricht-Funktion” in die Facebook Applikation hinzufügt werden. Neben dem Nachrichtenaustausch zwischen zwei Usern, soll dies auch zwischen mehreren ausgewählten Personen funktionieren. Über eine eigene Schnittstelle von Facebook kann man die Friendslist jeden Users abfragen. http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/fql/friendlist Auf der Webseite findet man auch seitlich die anderen Tables, falls man noch [...]
