    Actually looking to be...;)

    Honestly, major difference I've seen here is members are more friendly. I cannot comment a lot on this, because I've not registered on the Suns' forum.

    Default Java Forums... go team, GO!!!

    I was wondering when this question was going to show up... sun.forums is probably a larger community (more activity), but the Java Forum is way, way much nicer. I've had a sun.forum member tell me that he didn't give a hoot about what the OP wanted/needed (after giving a real crappy answer) and stated that he could do anything he wanted in that forum. No moderator intervined.
    Also, sun.forum has a lot more troll activity and a lot more silly discussions/arguments between forum members.
    Due to it's size and activity, it also contains a lot fo useful information.

    Yes lol, few times I've search the forum and found very useful stuff in developments with Java. As you said, commenting about newbies are really nice. Not just giving an answer, actually not given a one easily.

    I'm not a member of sun forum. Seems better to have an account on that as well. ;) Chris are you registered there as Chris, in the forum?

    Default cjslman..

    I'm registered there also as cjslman. I don't post much on sun.forums because there is so much activity, the OPs is usually has an answer by the time I see the post.

    There are lots of members right.

    Actually I didn't get a chance to register on forums and ask questions when I'm leaning Java. Because I don't have internet connection in my PIII machine, which is my first desktop PC. That's why I like to hang here in forums, not only this many, and help others. :)

    I'm not registered at sun either, but I don't think you have to post an amount of posts first before you can see/post links and images.

    Is that a rule to make people get used to speak up here ?
    I'm beginning to like that rule, and good that there are off-topic subforums to fill with blabla like this.

    I've always liked the small pubs and disco's, so this forum is probably a good place to stay for me, at least, i hope so.

    hello freqrush -- I think that the 20 post rule is to prevent spammers from posting all sorts of bogus ads with links. So feel free to chat here a little bit if that's what it will take to get you to 20. Oh, and nice to meet you!

    Hi freqrush, welcome to our community! :)

    Actually what Fubarable says is completely true. We must have such rules to protect our community from many parties, specially from spammers. You can have a general chat if you really want to hang on with our community.

    Well, thanks for that protection against spammers, and for the welcome too ;-)

    I'm coming from a mailing list that's nearly dead due to spammers ... actually, the old list is dead, and now there's a new list but with very few readers, so few that I wondered if it wouldn't be better to start a topic here on this forum about the program in question.

    JSynthLib is the program, it's an editor/librarian for synthesizers and other MIDI instruments, samplers, effects, patch-bays ... all external hardware that is used by musicians. Normally, you can edit presets of such gear on a little front panel but if you have an editor on your computer for it, that makes life a lot easier.

    JSynthLib is designed to become a Universal synth editor/librarian supporting all synths that exist.
    The problem is, few musicians are or want to become professional Java coders, and if their synth isn't supported by JSynthLib yet, they'll have to write a driver on their own, in Java.
    At least, that's the situation I am in. I'm not really planning to keep myself busy with JSynthLib or Java for longer than needed, because I want to spend time on making music in the first place. But while I'm learning about JSynthLib and Java, because I have to, I want to leave my trace so the next one who's coming along the same path can find his way through the methods and attributes much easier.

    JSynthLib provides base classes and Widgets to use for each driver, so the programmer has to learn/adapt to these methods, and also learn the System Exclusive specifications of his particular hardware MIDI instrument (SysEx is using only hexadecimal numbers for communication).
    After combining these two areas into a driver, JSynthLib has to be recompiled with the new driver and the programmer's job is done. He can now move on and use JSynthLib to edit presets on his synth and make music in a more organized setup.

    So, each time a driver is written, someone learns the whole bunch, and then again forgets about it... By the time somebody else writes a driver for another synth, there's nobody left who still knows how JSynthLib works exactly, and he gets very little help when writing to JSynthLib's developers mailing list. With a wiki, I hoped to change that, but I'm not getting much input from other users.

    I'll have to write about that on the JSynthLib list too, best is to keep information on a subject together on one place.
