Hello Joop,
First of all thanks for your mails with the java programs, of course I have installed and running some of them.
But when I've seen the Jsoko, and I've gone to download it I've seen 62Mb.zip, and out of curiosity I have the Trashman from Carol Soft, which is the same game for OS/2, and occupies 120K unzipped. Only is 607 more times size.
Long live the progress !!!
Thanks for visiting my pages and this topic. I don't think you can compare JSoko with Trashman. JSoko does have hundreds of levels and storerooms. Also it has a solver and much more. Also I'm not in the game which is best or better or whatever someone comes up with. The only thing I do is finding serious programs for our version of Java (which is hard enough) and yes, some of them are to stay like Data Crow and Memoranda with lots of options. But the latter is personal preference. I think what most users forget is that Java can run on any serious computer system and you can take your Java program with its data to other platforms, a lesson I did learn the hard way with Apple which doesn't fulfill its promise and is going downhill again in favor of swift money and not in quality or bug-free or backwards compatibility. Most important thing with data is your backup and have a working restore if anything happens, no matter what.

Hi Joop.

I found about it late, but I just noticed that the JSoko webpage posted something about your page.
http://www.sokoban-online.de/singlenews/article/how-to-run-jsoko-174-on-os2-ecomstation.html

Thanks for making OS/2-eCS to have some notability outside the inner community :)

I have added today a new program. AccolorHelper (accessible color helper) is a simple tool which helps you determine whether the colors you want to use can be distinguished from each other by people with color deficiencies. You can read more on my page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e111.htm or in the Dutch language on http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n111.htm. I placed the program in the map Web programs.

A screen view from the program with in front the program and in the back the help page.


Want to add that the program switched automatically to Dutch in case you fear that there is no English text.

Have fun!

I wish you all a good and happy year. To give it a start I added a new program to the list of Java programs. This is all about managing your photo's. You can read about it on my page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e112.htm or in Dutch language http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n112.htm.

I made a screen print too;


Also I did upgrade some pages with translation errors, mainly Dutch pages. Added some info on the test phase page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e46.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n46.htm.

Okay, that's it for today. Have fun!

Hi!
If interesting... One of previous version(3.14.4) of yEd Graph Editor(MS Visio analogue) tested under OS/2(1.6 JRE of course). Current version(3.16.2.1) needed Java 8.x and up.
You may get 3.14.4 version from my cloud storage.

I have done some maintenance on the Java pages, nothing wild or so.
About the program UPM, update to last version. There is more international support, particularly interesting for Dutch users.
The page about Hodoku is updated, some lines where too long, so the page didn't show too well.
Same about the program Photo Manager, some lines where too long.

Its getting harder in finding new Java programs, more and more are migrating to Github, but that doesn't search so easy.
Regards,
Joop

As you noticed it is slowing down with adding new Java programs to my site. The reason for this is that there are no easy pickings anymore. I do have many programs on the burner so to speak, its shifting from front to back and reverse, depending on the answers on my questions I do get or not.
I had this one on the drive for a long time. The reason is that it is small and only one jar file, can't be much. So wrong. So I have added a new page to my homepage with the Java program Pixelitor. Here you can visit the English page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e115.htm and here the Dutch version http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n115.htm.

I have a picture too ;-);


That's it for now. Regards,
Joop

I have added a new program today. Its called Jeks and it is a spreadsheet program. On one side its simple, on the other its advanced. But if you use Lotus or Excel you might be disappointed. It does do the job, but for instance columns with figures are not alined on the decimal point, as an example. But you can make your own functions, that could be interesting. There is more, but you can read it on my page http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6e116.htm or in Dutch http://joopn.home.xs4all.nl/os2ecs/ecs6n116.htm.

There are two sample sheets, this is one of them;


Have fun!
