Vamp - Venus Application Publisher for JNLP
Beta 5 is now available for download.
What is Venus Application Publisher (Vamp)?
Venus Application Publisher (Vamp) is a user-friendly tool that helps you
package, sign and publish Java Network Launching Protocol (JNLP) software.
Venus Application Publisher includes a built-in web server that allows you to test
your installation package with a single click without the hassle of setting up,
configuring and launching a web server.
Venus Application Publisher allows you to upload your installation package
to Apache Tomcat with a single click.
Venus Application Publisher automatically wraps your native libraries in Java Archives,
signs all Java Archives and packages everything in a Web Archive before uploading it
via HTTP to any Tomcat server on the Web.
Venus Application Publisher itself is fully Java Web Start compliant and ready for you to launch it with a single-click.
Venus Application Publisher comes pre-configured with a digital certificate ready to
sign your Java Archives out-of-the box. Once your application is ready for shipment you can easily change
Venus Application Publisher to use your digital certificate of choice.
Venus Application Publisher keeps track of your data entry and uses
auto-completion to spare you from entering the same data twice.
Venus Application Publisher supports drag and drop and lets you add icons,
native libraries, jars or JNLP extensions by dragging them over from Windows Explorer
and dropping them onto Venus Application Publisher.
Venus Application Publisher spares you from torturing, pre-historic standard file choosers used by
Swing or Windows and allows you to select icons, jars and other files using modern, single-click,
full-page, web-style file choosers.
Venus Application Publisher supports round-trip-engineering and allows you to create and change your JNLP document
using either a form-based GUI editor or a text editor featuring color syntax-highlighting.
This is just the beginning. More is to come such as Java Web Start servlet support,
Concurrent Version System (CVS) support,
peer-to-peer super distribution support, FTP and WebDAV upload support,
JNLP template support, or CD installer creation support. These additions and more are
already in alpha and will be added over the next couple of weeks to establish
Venus Application Publisher as the world's leading application publishing solution.
Venus Application Publisher is built on top of a cutting-edge XML User Interface Language (XUL)
toolkit, code-named Luxor. Luxor XUL will be open-sourced under the GPL once Venus
Application Publisher is released as an appreciation of the many excellent open-source
projects Venus Application Publisher is built on and as proof that Venus Application
Publisher is more than a weekend hack and is indeed a world-class industry-strength solution your business
can rely on.
