    Fosdem2009 Datao Fosdem2009 Datao Presentation Transcript

    • A story of - Firefox, - Java, - and the Industry.
    • Disclaimer Beware!  This presentation contains bad  words: Corporate  IE5  Browser war I  Java  MozSwing  Ready? 
    • Disclaimer (again) Beware!  In this presentation, Firefox usually  means XulRunner (But who cares outside of this  room?)
    • Yet another day in the industry 1999  « - Let’s code a web app with powerful  client side features »  « - Great! Let’s code it for … IE5 » 2009  « - The project is ready, at last ! »  « - Great! Let’s try it on my new  Windows Vista »
    • Facing the truth The browser war is still painful,  several years after. There is a need for a true corporate  browser. A message to managers:  NO! IE is not the corporate browser. 
    • Firefox, the corporate browser? Answer:  …  YES!!!  Ooops, well, I mean NO!!!! 
    • Why not? Problem 1: legacy!!!  What about that IE5 app?  What about that ERP which requires IE?  Problem 2: poor marketing  « Firefox is yet another browser »  NO! Firefox is a Platform! 
    • Firefox as a Platform Firefox is open source  Firefox is OS-agnostic  Firefox has XUL  Firefox is plug-in based  Firefox is embeddable  Firefox can accept Java « scripting » 
    • Java??? Ask yourself:  What platform is trully universal on the  client side, in the industry? Answer:  The JRE.  Reason:  Unknown but it is a fact! 
    • And now… the corporate browser Firefox is embeddable as a Swing  component (cf MozSwing) Java apps are one-click deployable  Java libs are huge and accepted  == Firefox+Java is the corporate  browser!
    • Summary Thanks to MozSwing, Java and  Firefox can work together A tremendous client-side platform:  OS agnostic  Instant deployment  No more browser incompatibilities  Huge client-side features 
    • Conclusion MozSwing should be supported by  the Mozilla foundation
    • Who I am Datao.net  A Semantic Web Browser.  A semantic client-side platform:  Embedded Semantic Web Stack  Java Web Start for deployment  XulRunner as the UI  The feature I would love to see:  Templates in the HTML pipeline. 
