Framework windowing management system.
A functional windowing GUI provides
unlimited access to the Windows API with integrated cloud computing interface.
FrameworkPascal provides three types of Windows object oriented programming skeleton
programs which can be used as model applications: SDI, MDI, and Framework.
SDI and MDI (Single and Multiple Document Interface) are standard Windows GUI OWL-compatible programs.
Framework programs on the other hand substitute the Windows's messaging systems and the windows themselves
with Framework's own managed frames, users interface and API.
Frames are true hierarchical object which can be referred to by names, uses as program
variables, reflect, managed and display their content and are contextual in comparison to windows
which are only a link to a clipped display area on the Windows desktop.
Frames interrelate in sets that have no limit on nesting depth and siblings range and are used as the elemental building blocks of
the programmable environment accessible through an API and user interface which is Framework.
Their persistent positions and order, inherent selection capabilities and contextual
characteristics makes the Framework user interface visually independent.
Framework programs create their own frames and manages their own memory, mouse, and display but at the same time provide
transparent access to the Windows API allowing programmers and users to freely combine Windows and Framework code and modules.
Framework include various tools to deal with existing legacy code including a 16 bit real mode emulator which can be programmed
to debug, analyze, report binaries as well as redirect specific operations to Windows API functions without compiling original code.
OWL compatible units provide efficient migration of Borland Pascal
OWL, Turbo Pascal and Object Pascal programs written for DOS and 16 bit Windows 3.x
to Windows 32 with minimal changes to code. Code written for other operating
systems such as DOS, for text modes as well as full screen graphic modes, can be drooped as is
into provided object oriented programming or function based model applications skeletons and
compiled into GUI OWL applications. Back compatible graphics functions hides the Windows
GUI complexities and transparently adds to legacy code windowing management and graphic scaling.
FrameorkPascal object oriented Framework provides
abstracted generic system wide functions as well as powerful informative visual
and voice interface elements such as a segmented context based status line which
can be displayed as part of metaphors such as forms, tables, or even a custom
desktop. Elements has corresponding functions and can be can be hidden while
used programmatically for contextual interface. FrameworkPascal's Framework API
is modular and its elements can be called as needed. It is designed to
simultaneously run freely-mixed compiled and interpreted code. Programs can be
built using compiled object oriented and function based programming forming a
skeleton in executables on which function-based interpreted modules can run. The
Framework architecture provide the run time interactive interpreter with equal
access to the compiled objects and functions. Interpreted programs can be
combined with compiled code or can be constructed on the fly by users or code at
run time. The function based interpreter can allocate memory to built its own
object based structures as well as duplicate and extend the compiled object
oriented skeleton. The interpreter provide keyboard programmatic control with
macro recording which in turn allow automation of such built-in tools as graphic
scaling, rotations, combining graphics with text and saving of files in popular
graphic formats with no programming.
The Framework windowing management system
for FrameworkPascal is an ideal visual document management and
programming platform designed as an alternative to Windows' MDI. Abstracting the
complexity of hierarchical windowing management the Framework's
architecture and building blocks would have required massive programming effort
using Windows or Linux tools as well as large memory and computing resources
making them impractical without the Framework technology. Some
capabilities such as Framework's window referencing and data
indexing which replaces hashing with a big-O of one algorithm requiring minimal
CPU resources are unique to Framework.
Framework replaces Windows' MDI (Multiple Document
Interface) with multiple "desktops" containing user-labeled
windows. Container "desktops" and their child windows can be
referenced by name programmatically or manually.
Desktops may contain any kind of windows and can grow to hold
multiple complex documents and programs. All windows regardless
of their content have parents and may have siblings and children.
Each has a dynamically indexed editable label and an optional
associated interpreted program in it's formula area.
Most important, without giving up an inch of access to Windows
programming resources programmers can literally ignore the
Windows event driven API messaging system and focus on their
Simple to use functions with corresponding menus create windows
and set the relations between them. Framework's
functions handle keys, mouse input, and focus, and make interface
with system and cloud computing resources a breeze.
Framework's windows relationship are managed
transparently in an architecture complying with network based
database methods which minimizes system resources and take
advantage of new parallel algorithms.
The Framework architecture is currently implemented
on Windows as well as a proprietary hardware based operating
system. It is available with and without
FrameworkPascal for commercial and enterprise
development of GUI and cloud computing applications.
Browserless Cloud computing Secure Applets
Based on the Framework technology special GUI cloud computing applets can be used to eliminate the
complexity and security vulnerabilities involved in using browsers as cloud computing
client side interface. GUI cloud computing applets can be automatically pre-configured for client
machines hardware verification for added security.
FWPCC was designed specifically and exclusively for compiling Windows GUI client side
cloud computing open source programs provided with it. It requires a views.com cloud
computing server development account.
Cloud Computing Applet programs are built on top of a well documeted easy to use
interface connecting a Windows GUI editor and a modular SQL server interface.
Views development and commercial server accounts (Apache, Tomcat, MYSQL) comes with server and clinet

GUI Legacy code Conversion
Framework Computers, Inc. preserves the investment companies have made in their
intellectual property by customizing a FrameworkPascal compiler convertor to
compile non Windows as well as legacy function based source code into Windows
GUI event driven programs. Substantial savings can be achieved by eliminating the need
to redesign, rewrite and test Windows event driven programs.
Intellectual property written for other systems including
real and protected mode DOS, SUN, Apple MAC, Unix,
Mainframes and database operating systems can have full access to the
Windows GUI, API, controls, Direct X and the Internet.
The compiler provides a simpler function-based alternative to the Windows API
and can extend legacy source code with native Windows programs and DLL's as well as
cloud computing tools, SQL, database and OLE with proportional font and graphical user interface.
