In this releases some of the Drombler FX/ ACP start-up code has been moved to Drombler Commons.
This allows also non-Drombler FX/ ACP applications, such as the Drombler JStore Client Agent, to reuse start-up code such as:
- distinction between user directory and installation directory
- simple command line arguments / switches support
- extendable BootServiceStarter framework
- "single instance" support, which makes sure the application runs only once per user directory and passes the command line arguments to the running single instance
Please also note that org.drombler.commons.fx.scene.GraphicFactory moved to org.drombler.commons.client.graphic.GraphicFactory with these releases.
Small EnhancementsThere are small enhancements to work with directories, data handlers, collection bindings and TreeViews.
Please check the documentation to learn more about them.
