Infolog desktop client

Ever since I started to use Thunderbird as a frontend to my Egroupware server, I am annoyed by the fact that it does not provide a convenient note-tracking application. As it looks like there won’t be one in the near future, I wrote one myself taking a different approach by writing a complete client and server program. It took me quite a while as I used the project to learn about hibernate, rmi and all kinds of java techniques. I first wrote the application in JavaFX, but I noticed an incredible lack of speed through serialization of a JavaFX object. Though I am a fan of more modern programming languages and wanted to use it, (I think the world really needs modern languages and we shouldn’t use the ancient ones anymore. If you like the ways of the past you should stick with clay tablets), in the end I decided to stick with Java and Swing.

All notes displayed on the desktop

The program provides your notes, todo’s and phone calls as colored sticky notes on your desktop. Currently, I am looking for a place to host the code and provide downloads. When you are interested, please let me know, I can send you the binaries already by mail. See the page on this blog about the project.
