Java and Light weight language

This time, I translated Java connector's section in Alinous-Core Official site. Alinous-Core is Domain Specific Language, so in the specifiyed domain, it is very easy to develop. But sometimes, it is not enough. So Alinous-Core has the Java connector, which is interface to load java class and call it from Alinous-Script. I actually used the function, for example Output PDF slipsAccess using socketEdit xml filesEdit binary filesJava has a lot of useful library and if we can use it, there is no disadvantage  for the new domain specific language. Alinous-Core has class loader to load java library file(*.jar) and resources(ex. fontfiles) dynamically. That is big merit to write Light weight language's Virtual Machine in java. ... (more)

Translation About Grammar of the Script Has Been Done

Currently, translation project is going on, and the grammar section was done. On this opportunity, I edit the source articles written in Japanese. I newly made a mind map and reorganize documents. In this internet era, it is important to show the out line of the page, section, and website. If customers can't understand what they want is in the document, they'll leave the web site. And my product is not easy for customers to understand what it is, what is the difference, whether they can use it really easily. So I think very much and decided to make  mind maps, and show it at first.
