What Users Say About Vamp

Venus App Publisher looks awesome - thanks a lot for putting so much effort into this thing.

- Tom Copeland, Realeum

I just wanted to tell you that you have provided a real service and done a great job with your Java Web Start tools. I really appreciate it.

- John Wright

I have just installed Venus and I would just like to say that I find it very useful. It definitively makes things easier.

- Steve van der Merwe

Hello, I'd first like to congratulate you on your useful and interesting tools, tips and libraries about Java Web Start, thanks.

- Gregory Bussard, Gemplus Labs

Your idea with class:// is brilliant. So simple, so easy, so ingenious. I love it. Why don't you suggest it to be incorporated into JNLP standards? It solves a lot of problems, and people will have a much easier time doing that instead of calling a classloader. As well, there won't be as many people trying new File(...), everyone can understand the class protocol idea. And what's great about this is you could extend it further - why not tie it in with RMI? You could serve up classes. Makes sense to me.

- Robert Paris, Shout Graphics

I was searching the web to find a way to load images and text for my jar file. This is simple and works great. Thanks a bunch.

- Cliff Schenkel

Auf den ersten Blick ein leistungsfähiges Tool. Gratuliere.

Zunächst einmal möchte ich meine Begeisterung über Ihre Tools ausdrücken. Sie schlagen voll in die Lücke, die Sun mit JNLP (noch) hinterlässt. Toll.
