This new blog is about the project I'm working on for the Dutch summer of code, called 'Programmeerzomer', organised by the Holland Open Software Platform The project I'm working on is called JChemPaint, an editor for 2D molecular structures and part of the The Chemistry Development Kit (CDK). My goal for this project is to rewrite JChemPaint with proper Java2D and SWT support. Egon Willighagen is my mentor for this project.

Why doing this?
-Java2D isn't used efficiently in JChemPaint atm.
-Bioclipse is currently using the SWT_AWT bridge with proprietary code which is not working on virtual machines.

My Goals
-Getting known to CDk, Bioclipse and SWT.
-Checking out current JChemPaint code.
-Find out requirements for code to be replaced.
-Implementing SWT/Java2D in JchedmPaint
-Making chances at other places of the CDK (Renderer2D for example)
-Get new version of JChemPaint working in Bioclipse

25 June There was a meeting at which the project became clear.
12 July Presentation about the planning and goals
9 August Half-way meeting
20 September Endpresentation at the Holland Open 'Netwerkborrel'
