|Java menu knowledge base|
I don't like the demos on your site - can I change how they look?
Yes. The extent to which each applet can be changed varies - some
are outstandingly user-configurable, others deliberately less so
(e.g. to offset for greater functionality). You should download a
trial version and experiment with changing the appearance to suit
your purposes before you buy. Instructions for changing the
appearance are on this website.
When I buy "one" applet, does that limit me to one appearance?
No - you can have as many appearances as you like. Normally we deliver
applets with a single sample implementation attached, but you can use the various
resources and tools to create other appearances.
Do you have a point-and-click development environment for your applets?
Can I have a huge great EXE file?
- Yes and no.
- No for most "imint.com" products
- Yes for imint.com's Magic Animated Buttons
- Yes for Happy Menus
- Yes for Alien Menus
- Point-and-click (visual) development environments for applets are controversial
- Simple applets should be easy enough to use that you don't need an extra
application to help you!
- Very advanced applets (like a good number of ours) are primarily used by
web developers with various types of programming knowledge; a development
environment can actually hinder in this case, because direct access to parameters
and other configuration handles is preferable.
- Many development environments on the market are Windows-only. Good development
environments for applets need to be cross-platform.
- Many development environments are bloatware, occupying more drive space than justified
by their functionality. That's why our Happy Menus and Alien Menus developments
environments are online tools which you don't download.
Well, OK. Here's a useful one
to make you feel good. But remember: applets are little things (power-packed, but
little) that go in your web pages. In the world of java menus, small is beautiful
and megabytes are out.
What exactly are your products?
They are applets, programmed in java, which are designed to
be embedded into web pages and web applications so as to facilitate navigation
through websites and documentation. They can also act as general control and menu bars,
triggering user-defined events other than navigation.
Can the applets be embedded in my application?
It depends what kind of application it is. With so-called
"web applications", usually yes. Try it with the trials.
Can the applets be connected to my own classes?
No. Our navigation applets are purely for use on their own and their methods
cannot be accessed for other java developers to build their own
applications on top of ours. If you have a good idea and would like
to enter a collaborative project with us, then just ask.
Are your products beans or components?
No. They are applets for embedding in a web page for website navigation.
Do your products run on the server?
No. Servlets run on the server, applets run on the client.
