Dolphin Platform has been released
We planed to release the Dolphin Platform before JavaOne but the preparation of the JavaOne Voting Machines took more time then expected and we can’t finish all the todos that we had to fully open source the Dolphin Platform. Since JavaOne is over for more than a week we found some time to finish all the steps and I’m proud to announce the first Dolphin Platform release :)
As a first step we uploaded the Dolphin Platform website and added some descriptions and information about the framework. In addition we created a first tutorial and a getting started" guide. All the Java sources (client and server) are uploaded to GitHub, a first release has been created and was uploaded to Maven Central & JCenter.
If you want to try Dolphin Platform you can create your first application by simply adding the following dependencies:
For a Spring Boot based server you only need to add the following dependency:
<dependency> <groupId>com.canoo.dolphin-platform</groupId> <artifactId>dolphin-platform-server-spring</artifactId> <version>0.6.1</version> </dependency>
For a JavaFX based client you need to add the following dependency:
<dependency> <groupId>com.canoo.dolphin-platform</groupId> <artifactId>dolphin-platform-client-javafx</artifactId> <version>0.6.1</version> </dependency>
If you are new to Dolphin Platform you can find some post about the API in my blog. In addition we spend some time to create the JavaDoc of the public API. If you have any questions please leave a comment or ask us on twitter. For news about Dolphin Platform you should follow the official twitter account @DolphinPlatform.
