The Eclipse Scout team has recently published the Rayo Look and Feel for desktop applications on the Marketplace. Using the new Scout 3.8 Juno download package, the installation is directly supported by the Scout SDK as described in the Wiki.
How does Rayo look like?
Adding the Rayo Swing Look and Feel to an existing Scout application has the following effect:
The Scout application to the left corresponds to the standard Swing UI. Adding the new Rayo look and feel results in the UI shown on the right hand side. In case you happen to live in Germany, Switzerland or Austria, you can create this application by following the new Scout tutorial series starting with Java Magazin 2012.7 . A related tutorial is available in the Scout Wiki.
A strong feature of Rayo is the possibility to create good looking applications that offer an identical look and feel for both desktop and web applications as demonstrated in the screenshot below.
As we’re getting closer to the final builds of the Juno release, we will have a closer look on how to build and deploy Scout web applications in the near future. Stay tuned …
