Re: Nmap GUI

Hi all,
I'm a Java coder since 6 years ago and I think Java is not the best 
option for a Nmap GUI. If you have all lines of code of nmap team in 
C/C++, you won't take advantage of it. In Java, you could only execute 
nmap commands.
I think the new Nmap GUI could be coded in C/C++ with GTK+ library. 
Another excellent program, ethereal, is coded in C with GTK+ and you can 
install in the next systems: MacOSX, BeOS, Linux, *BSD, UNIX, Windows, 
etc. Not only Java is portable! :D

Cheers,

Candido Rodriguez

What about using Java for developing the new GUI? It is portable and
one can use GTK for Java for the interface. I think java is popular
enough that a JRE exists on almost every machine, and if it doesn't
exist then it isn't  that big (12 - 16 MB) to download.
