New Media Player for Java Web Toolkit

Version 3.1.11 of the JWt Java web toolkit, has been announced.

Applications developed using JWt, can be deployed in a standard Java Servlet container.

This release adds a new ‘WMediaPlayer’ media player widget that provides a uniform look across different technologies through a UI that can either be a Wt widget, or HTML. A new WLink class has also been added, which unifies different Wt link types in a single value class. More information on this update, is available at the Release Notes.
