Jar file - XML Tutorial
All of the Bamboo Suite components resides in a single jar file called bamboo_1_5.jar (the version numbers will change over time).
Currently these components/controls are widget, button, edit(single and multiline), radio, checkbox, combo, calendar, listbox, table,
mulitline with scroll bars and tree. The bamboo binary is only 100k (jar file), resulting in a lower memory footprint and a faster one-time download time.
All other applications dependant on the bamboo API will function instantly (only the initial cost of the download is absorbed)
You may add these components to your web site using the applet tag.
In this tag you would set the archive attribute (i.e. archive="bamboo_1_5.jar") as well as setting the code
attribute to Loader.class.
The Loader.class is the main interface between the bamboo API and the application interface.
Follow this instructions to create Bamboo Suite components applets:
Create a 'test' folder anywhere on your hard drive.
Copy bambookit_1_5.jar file there.
Create a 'testing.html' file (to create an html document you may use DreamWeaver, Frontpage or a plain text editor).
Save this file into your 'test' folder.
In 'testing.html' cut and paste the applet code onto your file (Use the HTML Source a template).
Modify the properties of your GUI elements through the use of a XML file, or even add to them by using the
Each tutorial includes live applet examples with the HTML source as well as XML files provided.
As long as the web page is hosted locally and ran locally everyhting would work fine.
To be able to run the HTML file with Bamboo Suite applets from your Web server, you would need to purchase
a package, which includes the text file containing the serial number.
Once the package is purchased, you would need to place the license file next to the bamboo jar file.
