|XJS Extension for WeirdX|
|What about giving X client programs access to
Navigator or MSIE ???
Netscape invented the LiveConnect API for that purpose. By
adding the XJS extension to WeirdX
a browser alert box.
|How to set it up||
Notes: So far, I tested it on Windows with Navigator 4.7 and MSIE 5.0 and the X extension and clients on Linux 2.2.x (GLIBC). Unfortunately, the JDK 1.2 plugin executed in MSIE 5.0 does not support the LiveConnect.
|Download||WeirdX XJS extension module (Java source, about 4 kByte). Since version 1.0.15 this is
included in WeirdX.
Patch for the WeirdX.java module (version 1.0.8) (about 1 kByte). Since version 1.0.15 this is included in WeirdX.
Source code of X extension library and sample clients as gzipped tar (about 7 kByte). An ELF object file XJS.o is contained in this archive. X clients on Intel IA32 UN*X platforms (Linux 2..x, FreeBSD 3.3, SCO UnixWare) can be linked against this object. On other platforms the X extension must be recompiled.
|Licensing||GPL for the WeirdX parts, X Consortium license for the extension library and client parts.
