… a new open source project by my self.
It’s the Java backend for the CKEditor. It provides an object with a simple interface for creating and configuring an editor instance. This makes the deployment of the CKEditor a piece of cake. CKEditor.Java is targeted to be used in servlet-based systems like JSP as well as template engines like Velocity or FreeMarker.
There are a similar library which is provided by the official CKEditor team (CKEditor for Java). But there are some mentionable differences between these libraries:
- CKEditor.Java isn’t focused on JSP and can be used in all servlet-based systems.
A tag library isn’t provided yet!
- CKEditor.Java has an advanced handling of properties. It’s possible to set all configuration settings for the entire web application which should be used in the CKEditor in one properties file. This keeps the frontend code clean.
- CKEditor.Java uses the state-of-the-art logging facade slf4j. The preferred logging framework can be used!
