Demo apps available

Today we pushed Sprint 70 “Bow” to our server. As more and more developers get interested in the Zong! project, we started to write little demo apps which show how Zong! components can be used within other software projects:

  • The Minimal demo simply converts a MusicXML file to a PDF file
  • The little more advanced Simple GUI demo includes a score viewer with a moving cursor and MIDI playback

In this sprint, we created the JavaFX based renderer. We refactorized the musicxml and musicxml-in projects as well as the renderer project, which is now a universal base for all platform-specific renderers (JavaFX, AWT/Java2D, GWT and Android is on the way). We will continue by improving the layout project, including tests based on the Inofficial MusicXML Test Suite.
