I. Introducing Bambookit GUI

Chapter 1. What's Bambookit GUI?

Bambookit GUI provides a rich GUI platform to empower web applications with desktop-like front-end functionality.

Bambookit GUI is made up of the following controls; button, checkbox, label, menu, collapsible panel bar, calendar, color picker, edit, window, tree, listbox, combobox, table, tab, tooltip, popup and more.

Bambookit GUI is completely XML scriptable, no java programming is required beyond the XML syntax. This makes the GUI accessible to web designers as well as web developers.

Bambookit GUI sits on top of Personal Java, any device that is Personal Java enabled would be able to run Bambookit GUI, that includes the new cell phones, web enabled kiosks, Mac, Linux and Windows Operating Systems.

It is an extremely lightweight toolkit, only 100k. The jar file only needs to be loaded once, Once loaded all other pages work with no wait for the toolkit.

Works in any middleware infrastructure, JSP, PHP, ASP, CFM and CGI (.NET or J2EE). Allows the enterprise to leverage their existing infrastructures and investments, to provide and web interface to their legacy systems with desktop like functionality.

We are HTTP driven (also known as HTTP-tunneling, or HTTP piggyback). This is an important feature which allows the Bambookit GUI to be accessible through existing firewalls without having to request specific ports to be opened on the corporate or enterprise firewalls. Since we work exclusively through HTTP we are also automatically SSL enabled, if we are placed on an SSL enabled server (https) all the communication to this server is now automatically SSL encrypted without any modification to the XML scripts.
