Graphical design is very ugly. I use only standard windowing toolkit
supplied from Sun in JDK named AWT which is not much nifty and comfortable.
On the other hand at least this demo tries to be as much compatible as possible.
Proudly developed using
[Sun Java and GNU/Linux].
Currently known browser bugs:
- MS Internet Explorer 5.0 has a bug
with mismatching color values from PixelGrabber. Instead of direct use of getRGBdefault() I'm calibrating on internally
generated image with full temperature range. Despite this fact this browser is recommended due to its fast JVM implementation.
- Sun JDK was tested on GNU/Linux successfuly
in version 1.1.7a from BlackDown, although JIT (Just-In-Time) compiler is missing
and so the resulting speed is almost unusable.
- Netscape Communicator 4.61 on GNU/Linux
is compatible although it also doesn't provide JIT and so the result is similiar to JDK noted above.
- Netscape Communicator 4.61 on Win32 is not able to correctly provide PixelGrabber
at all so the function of this program is very limited on this platform.
Original JavaDraw was written by
Vincent Zimmermann, I've only modified it to provide heat-distribution
functionality. Thanks to Tomas Bures for some
helpful ideas and algorithms. Contact to me follows:
