Description

It would be useful to tailor the ImageJ user interface to each platform according to commonly accepted design paradigms. For example, on Windows, support for an  MDI paradigm in addition to ImageJ's usual  SDI, support for system tray icons, support for window docking, and on Mac OS X, better consistency in the application menu bar.

  • Milestone changed from imagej-3.0 to imagej-2.5

The source:core/platform service is the mechanism by which we can achieve platform-specific behavior. For example, for Mac OS X, source:ui/platform-macosx adds Mac-specific hooks to the program, automatically discovered at runtime via SezPoz. Similarly, we can have platform-windows and platform-linux for Windows and Linux OSes, respectively. Currently, the platform service supports differentiation based on Java vendor, Java version, OS architecture, OS name and OS version, but we can add more factors as needed.
