DENG and OpenLaszlo

Inspired by a user i wrote a proof of concept DENG proxy today, to be used in OpenLaszlo applications.

Follow these steps:

  1. Download and install OpenLaszlo
  2. Create a folder “deng” in your my-apps folder ([openlaszlo]/Server/lps-3.1.1/my-apps)
  3. Download the DENG test application for OpenLaszlo and extract it into the folder you just created
  4. Point your browser to http://localhost:8080/lps-3.1.1/my-apps/deng/deng.lzx

You should get a minimal application with buttons to load two test documents and to set the size of the rendered documents:

OpenLaszlo & DENG test application

I must admit i’m a OpenLaszlo newbie (installed it today for the first time), and the solution smells a bit like a hack (it certainly is). I also have no idea yet how to send events from DENG to the OpenLaszlo app. Any pointers highly apprechiated!
