A Twitter Client is the new Hello World


The growing chorus (amongst a cacophony) of very usable Twitter clients that use Twitter's REST API and run on the JVM, show to great effect that the Java runtime is a lovely place for a RIA app to perch.

Like Greet (start) which is build on the Griffon framework. Griffon uses the Groovy language and Swing components, and just hatched its 0.1 release.

Or the Simple Twitter Client, (start), built with the Scala language and Swing components wrapped in the Scala Swing package, as you can see here.

Or any of the JavaFX Twitter clients, Tweetbox (start) or TwitterFX, (start) built with the scene graph and JavaFX Script.

No news to those of you at last year's JavaOne ScriptBowl, but nice illustrations of why, what some may consider dull plumbing: tweaking the bytecode, modularizing the JDK, and rewriting the browser plugin benefits all RIA apps that run there, whatever their language: they run faster, start quicker, and integrate better into web pages (or pull out too).
Comments:

Thanks for the plug for Greet! Could you do me a favor and change the webstart link to http://dist.codehaus.org/griffon/samples/0.1.0/Greet/greet.jnlp ? This is the most current edition, running off of the linked Griffon 0.1 code.

By dividing the living rooms into equal squares, it turns out that for most games, many of the squares contain unused toys that can be safely put away.http://www.watchgy.com/

The thing that I love more about twitter it is because you feel that you have more anonymity than Facebook and you can write different kind of comments that they can be harm in your Facebook account. It is a pity that twitter comments are small but It also is its magic. If you can't say your comment in less than 150 character. It doesn't deserve to be on twitter.
