Developing cross-platform application GUIs
previously required custom front-end code for each platform. The
open-source Mozilla project provides a standards-based approach to this task
that we have used for applicable products.
By developing entire standalone applications with
combinations of XML-based user interface layout, XBL widgets written in C++,
automatically runs on most Windows, unix and MacOSX platforms without requiring
detailed programming skills for each platform.
ATG Labs can help you start down the right
path using these tools, can design and prototype your XML-based GUI, or can
implement and test the product for you.
Here are some links to the open source Mozilla
development sites that describe the technology, including methods for embedding
their gecko layout engine and for creating stand-alone applications.
