It's a long time since I posted my last article on this blog. Well, I have a lot of work on many projects for our customers at Javista and not so much time to be active on this blog.
But I'm still working on my tools and the next one won't really be a new tool, more a toolbox. The idea is to have only one executable which will be able to embed all my previous tools, and more, tools that would be developed based on interfaces provided by this toolbox. The toolbox will handle all connection features, tool presentation and progress messages from tools.
This way, there will be only one tool in order to access many features. More, if you are using Windows 8 start screen, that means only one tile to access all tools.
Here is a preview of the UI (Image, Version, Author and description of each tool is handle by the tool itself, no by the toolbox)
The tool will surely be released before all my tools get converted to this new plugin system. I just hope it will be done in the coming month. Tools that are not yet converted will follow later.
You will then be able to develop your own plugin that will integrate smoothly in this toolbox.
Stay tuned for the release date!
