JSEU (Java Source Entry Utility … for RPG)
So it never ceases to absolutely amaze me what is out there in open source land. For example, a gentleman recently commented on my blog entry concerning RPG Next Gen being a possible replacement for the now more-complicated-to-obtain RDi, and he (Mario) brought about another GUI RPG editor I haven’t even heard of. The free and open source editor is named JSEU (Java Source Entry Utility) and can be found at http://jseu.sourceforge.net. I will provide another review of it once I can actually get it fully working. I was finally able to get it running (after reading the instructions ;-) but I can’t seem to figure out how to make a connection to my AS400. I have posted a message on the support forum, but it appears as if spiders and cobwebs might be my only companion as the last post was 2006-11.
Makes me wonder if Mihael Schmidt (RPGNextGen author) and Derek Van Kooten (JSEU author) should combine forces and get to all of the endpoints we are hoping for much sooner.
Or maybe better yet we should see if MyEclipseIDE would be interested in not only competing with IBM in the RAD space with MyEclipseBlue but also produce a MyEclipse competitor for WDSC/RDi. I think it will only be a matter of time before *something* from *some company* provides solid competition given how IBM is complicating our lives with their licensing/pricing.
BTW, I am typing this while it is -24 degrees Fahrenheit outside my basement window (not including wind chill). Needless to say I have my legs running in place underneith my desk to keep warm. I am even starting the practice of disassebling an electric blanket and then duct taping it to my body in the cold areas, and then I just plug it in right next to my crackberry and am kept warm – I just love Minnesota :-)
