An overview of the Bliss Framework 4 (FWK4)

The Bliss Framework is used to build GUI applications to operate on beamlines equipment.

It provides a mean of abstracting the beamline hardware, and a mean of building GUIs that use these abstractions.

On April 06th 2009, the FWK4 has been introduced to the BLISS group.

The slides used for this presentation are available as Framework4.ppt (Powerpoint format).

The presentation includes demos of Beacon and the GUI Builder, which are available separately: Beacon_demo.avi and GUIBuilder_demo.avi.
