About AUIT

The AUIT toolkit is a high-level Java user interface toolkit which completely abstracts the application code from the interface. For many platforms (currently Motif, Mac OS X and Win32), native widgets are provided; other platforms can use Swing. The interface is specified in a set of XML files, one XML file per platform is specified.

The abstraction is done by letting the application "publish" data to the interface and "subscribe" on user actions. The application never touches the widgets themselves; this is done by mediators which are provided by AUIT.

The goal of the toolkit is to be able to:

  • make it very easy to create and maintain applications
  • provide real cross-platform applications without sacrificing the possibilities of the platforms themselves
