Anahata Technologies is working on a Java and JavaFX library to use cloud-based document storage services such as Google (News - Alert) Drive as Document Management Systems for Java applications. Today, Anahata Technologies specializes in the analysis, design, implementation and support of cost-effective, custom built software applications.
Pablo Rodriguez Pina, founder and co-director of this Perth, Australia-based software company notes that this upcoming library consists of several features including an object oriented wrapper for Google Drive REST based SDK.
This library also includes a change control API to cut down the number of calls between the client and the cloud storage provider; a pluggable mirror API to define and add storage mirrors; and a JavaFX 2.2 interface.
Business can use the pluggable mirror API when a Google drive client is being installed on a server in the local network and can be accessed via network share.
Anahata Technologies is set to make the library available to the general public in the near future. This library is currently a subset of the general purpose anahata-util library and Anahata will soon license it under an Open Source (News - Alert) license such as the Apache Software License (ASF) with Google Drive support. This library will also be allowed for additional cloud based storage providers such as Amazon S3 and SkyDrive.
The company was in news earlier this year for announcing that it would be defaulting to JavaFX as user interface technology for the delivery of desktop based enterprise applications. Additionally, Anahata intends to use JavaFX as first choice for developing cross-platform enterprise applications.
