Java/Swing Chess Project
When I started working for NBCi, I was a little bit sad that there wasnt too much Java work for me to do. To keep in touch with Java and learn even more, I decided that it was time for my own Java project.
Coincidentally I started playing chess at about the same time (Thanks Uwe and Andreja !). A chess application seemed a good idea and that's how it started. The current version is a little bit buggy since I use the application mainly for testing purposes. There is still some work to be done before I am happy with the components (ChessBoard, NotationTable, Toolbar). I might start working on the application itself when that is done.
At the moment I am concentrating on reading PGN files using JavaCC.
- Rotating board
- Pluggable styles (images and colors)
- load and save games as XML
- Edit mode
- Player properties (name only)
You can download binaries only at the moment, but as soon as I find some time to put the sources together, they will be available here.
