GCstar Exporter early release edition

I have begun coding GCstar exporter. This little program is intended to add PDF reporting capabilities to GCstar. So far, I have managed to create a usable PDF report for the Book collection. Currently, you have to first export your GCstar book collection to XML (using a supplied template) and then used the exported XML to create the PDF report using the application.

Right now, I am concentrating on getting a framework in place and getting the export features to work (in this constrained manner) for one type of collection. The current version of the application will support only book collections.

In the future versions, though I plan to use the native GCstar file format to generate the reports. Also, I plan to support all collection types (hopefully). And maybe some simple statistical reports may also be supported.

Right now, if you are interested you may try out an early release. The file is hosted at Rapidshare (till I can set up a new project at Google Code). While the application works, any users be warned that extensive error handling has not been done.

What you can expect from the this release:

  • PDF report generation for Book collections
  • Working GUI
  • Support for Windows and Linux (tested on Windows Xp and openSuse 10.2 with Java 1.5)
  • Multi-lingual support (Supports English, French and German)
