ABSTRACT: Defining, Implementing, and Maintaining a Java framework for pen-based computing and the Livescribe Platform”
This presentation will walk the audience through the history of the Livescribe Java framework from the initial design phase to the current implementation and beyond. We will examine why Java was selected for Penlet development, the process of implementing varied Java specifications, and the risk/benefits of early public API access. Finally we will detail the mapping of existing data structures and paradigms for pen-based computing to the Livescribe platform.
Depending on time constraints, this presentation will include an introduction to Livescribe’s Platform SDK: Java development of Penlets, (early look) Java development of pen communication desktop software, and the Eclipse-based Paper generation tool.
