A little something

Some months ago, we ordered a Sun Ray 2 Virtual Client and used it with the Sun Ray Server on Solaris.
I started to play with different configurations but quickly concluded that the default server is too complicated to configure and to customize for our needs.

In about 2 weeks, a new server was born : jOpenRay, written in Java. At this moment, I had no time to polish it, so we used it "as is".

Last week, we released a new software (NegoNG), so I took 2 days to polish the software and to make a video of its capabilities (available on youtube).

Today, We open www.jOpenRay.org. To be continued...

Playing with Sun Ray 2

Sun Ray 2

We just bought a Sun Ray 2 Virtual Client and start playing with this silent device. It's not yet clear for us what JDS, UTTSC, VDA, VDM and kiosk mean but the Sun Ray Server is up and running on our Solaris 10 server.

The device can be seen as "a terminal using a VNC-like protocol, with sound, USB and a card reader".

I think we will buy a new one soon and release a litlle something (as innovative as jOpenDocument was).
