hi HPers,

I've been trying out the SWED code for the SW Best Practices apps and 
demos collection, and I've been really impressed. With a bit of fiddling 
its been really easy to set something up for this community:


The idea is to use DOAP to describe the applications and demos, which 
works pretty well and means we can just add DOAP descriptions wherever 
we find them.

I've only had two real problems. One is that DOAP's schema has French as 
well as English and for some reason the browser seems to prefer the 
French version. The other problem was just that everything is localised 
in such a way that it requires a good deal of tweaking (more than I 
could be bothered with ;) not to have it immediately after the domain 
name using proxy and rewrite.

Oh, one more - initially I wasn't using java 1.4 and this is necessary - 
I didn't notice that in the instructions.

Anyway, I really like it - a really comprehensive and detailed demo 
that's very useful indeed :) :)
