Server Protocol Spec

Post by A.Schoeller » Sat Dec 15, 2012 8:54 am

Hi Cmappers,

this refers to former requests for iPad & Android versions of the Cmap-client. I'd like to add a request for a HTML/Javascript-Client :D . I assume that in the event of a public protocol-spec, that describes the interaction between Cmap-Client/-Server, that preferably uses JSON- or XML-formated messages, it will be a matter of months, probably weeks, until new front-ends for Cmap-Server could show up. Maybe JavaFX first, than a Web-frontend and native Mac/Win/*nix-Versions would follow later.
As a nice example what can be done in HTML these days :idea: Conceptboard https://conceptboard.com/board/trt9-62ze-9xbm-ihu2-p31x

Greets, Andreas

There are 2 public protocols available. The older one is described at http://cmap.ihmc.us/xml/. A newer protocol, http-based, will be published soon, but have shared it with those interested.

A preliminary web-based version of the editor has not been completed because of lack of funding.
