Build the Web, Use Bracket
BRACKET is the future of Network Software. It is a feature packed product that is all set to change the rules of the game. Desktop Sharing, File System Access, File Transfers and Messaging, Web Services Framework is just a small subset of its features.
BRACKET software is free for personal non-commercial use. You don't have to pay anything as long as you use it for the same purpose. To use Bracket for any other purpose you must purchase licenses.
Web Services API
Bracket Webservices Framework is a very powerful framework which has the potential to change the face of Internet. It makes possible to develop webservices that run on user's local machine but remain accessible over the Internet. It opens numerous avenues because the services can now interface with local resources and can perform tasks that were not possible earlier. Also the framework takes care of integrating the locally running service with Internet and you as a developer need only to focus on the specificities of your service implementation.
You would also have the choice of providing your webservice implementation in any technology. Though the API is java based but nothing stops you from interfacing it with native code (JNI) and any other technology of your choice.
The Bracket Webservices Client API, using which you can develop your own webservices, can be downloaded from below. Just like our sample webservices your webservice can also be directly imported inside any Bracket client session. Others can thus directly benefit from your work.
Samples & Source Code
The following ready-to-use sample services are available for download and can directly be imported inside your client session. We are in the process of developing more such services for your use. Also we invite software developers to visit Developer's Zone and contribute towards development of path breaking services.
The full source code of a sample service called testservice can be downloaded from below. You can use this code as base for developing your own service implementation. Also the source code of any of the services available under Samples can be requested by mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
