software was developed
in summer 2004 for the software cd, enclosed to the book „Premium
Freeware optimal nutzen“.
The reason was the necessity to to arrange various free available software products clearly on the cd, including complex Open Source programmes like OpenOffice.org or The GIMP.
Also users with little experience in installing programmes should be enabled to locate setup data files easily and to save ressources of their systems.
In case of network installation of OpenOffice.org 1.1.3 users should carry out the process without manual entrys of parameters.
|The use of
Java was self-evident
for quick and flexible composition of the cd´s GUI. Every change of the
GUI´s optics (buttons, text, images) can be performed without skills in
Thereby it was necessary to keep in mind that a Java Runtime Environment is not automatically available on users´ Windws PCs.
Under this circumstances the JRE was not only to be delivered on cd but had to run from cd. Otherwise the start of the cd would have been impossible without installing a JRE immediatelly.
