The decision is made to ensure the application will happily run on either OpenJDK or OracleJDK!

During development, we will switch back and forth to ensure that is the case!

05 March 2020

The decision is made to ensure the app will run on both OpenJDK or OracleJDK.

At this early stage I simply can't decide which route to take.

Ensuring the app will run on either will enable the ability and ease to go either way in future.

We must push ahead, see some functionality and see how the application will evolve before making the final decision.

Of course there are pros and cons either way.

Researching the pro's and cons going forward with either OpenJDK or OracleJDK as Oracle introduces it's new subscription based licensing model.

Possible switch from OracleJDK to OpenJDK

Oracle has introduced a new subscription based model for the commercial use of their java developmet kit. As a result I have begun to research the impact this might have on the software already developed. On top of this, JavaFX has been decoupled from future releases of Java development kits.

It might be that I switch to use OpenJDK instead. Already I have found that the later versions of Java where javafx is decoupled, has broken some parts of the existing software I have developed.

Important decisions need to be made going forward. Go OpenJDK or OracleJDK?

Internationalization has been incorporated from the beginning for multi-language operation. It is hoped this will ease deployment across the globe!

Adding cameras

26 June 2019

Here we are coding software to add surveillance cameras to the system. The current priority is to implement MJPEG and and then RTSP cameras with other types to follow from there!

Connection successful!

We have successfully connected to an MJPEG camera and am able to read in the camera model, response codes, boundary text, content length and even some raw image data. Soon we'll have a sample video embedded for absolute verification!
