Inc. recently announced the release of JavaControl version 2.2, its
software development kit which provides Java developers with SNMP support,
increased power and reduced development time for networked device management.
JavaControl version 2.2 will feature MIBway, a new SNMP MIB inheritance
technology that will enable developers to add embedded functions to network
and office or home devices using “single-click technologies.”
MIBway enables network device manufacturers to leverage their previous SNMP
any specialized tools, compiling or code revision.
JavaControl utilizes Rapid Logic’s OpenControl Backplane(OCB), an embedded
management architecture which is used like a bi-directional data dictionary
of elements in the device. OCB enables developers to customize the look,
feel and function of device management interfaces.
By using JavaControl’s visual RAD integration tool, device vendors “can
expose their product’s embedded functions to the Java applets/applications
for display, data manipulation and real-time interactive control” without
requiring the re-engineering or re-compiling of any underlying embedded C
New features of this release of JavaControl include a visual RAD
environment with the ability to generate Java applications and applets. The
new RAD environment enables developers to view object associations, making
it easier to remove them when needed. The tool is Java 1.1 and JavaBean
compliant, and includes JDK 1.1.5.
The JavaControl SDK is available from Rapid Logic with prices starting at
