What's going on here?
This is the place where I explain the structure of my studies about WWW
development and distribution. All this project is my practice of a real future job of Web Producing -or- Web
Design -or- Web Admin.
thank you, SourceForge.net!
How am I going to study all these new technollogies?
Like everything. By imitation. Reading, watching, begging and trying.
What are my tools?
, all what is in this site is for producing very pretty work: cvs, forums, Perl (Of course!),
PHP, MySQL, logins, crontab and all platforms.
The technology used at this site is worldwide famous for their resources and different perspectives that support. But I am only using very little of it for my practical requirements:
- JAVA - Sun's latest JRE, JAR files built with JBuilder4
- MySQL database
What is the structure of my project?
Basically, I have created a sort of E-book/Calendar hybrid that is multiplatform. This is the soft that is used to read
J.Krishnamurti's Book of Life
, and show it on any desktop that supports
Sun's JAVA JRE
. The text was structured by me in
, based on a
of my creation that would work good for this book without further standarization. All these files go inside a JAR file that can be
and started from any desktop and any platform.
Krishnamurti's philosophy is worldwide known because it is easy to understand and accept by any religion. And was created to follow no leader or institution. This project is my little contribution to help people overcome this dark times in evolution. And my goal is to keep on publishing
useful material for everyone, as long as I keep on studying WWW new
technologies and being able to publish things.
So to distribute this e-book I need to reproduce the standard procedures to promote a product, although in my case it is a FREE product.
I also need to reach excellence in downloading, installation and support of it. All this, shouldn't have to be different
from any standard procedure that would follow someone at a stable job in a commercial software production office.
Currently, the desktop application works well at my two working platforms:
Windows XP Pro
! Needs to be tested and polished for other platforms like UNIX, other LINUX (may be building
and other distros), MACs, etc.
I know that there should also be required some banner advertising. And could be done as long as there would be no money involved in the process.
To do this promotion, I thought about building a
WWW version of my E-book
to read and try before downloading / installing.
And could be visited daily to have a look at that day's thought. Now,
it has a Search
Tool to look for special words in this on-line e-book. Then, read the
titles and a little excerpt of every thought found. And
click to read all of it, if you want.
These daily thoughts are a good way of starting every
day's routine. With something
useful in the mind, to think about during the rest of the day.
Eventually, if someone wants to have the desktop version, they only have to
click the link at the foot of this page to download it and launch it easily. Just as simple!
To keep people visiting this site, I am using a *NIX crontab that every day generates an RDF file that has that day's title and can be distributed to an RDF center for everyone to consult it. If the title interests anyone, at the click of the mouse they could reach my PHP page and read the
thought of the day...
For the Mozilla browser family user there is a nice side-bar that can be attached to their browser. And that every day shows the title of the thought of that day that would take them to this site with a click on it. You can now access yesterday's and tomorrow's thought
without needing to build the date.
