Java based RIVA Client?
#1
Is it possible, has anyone considered developing a Java based RIVA client? Looking at this Yahoo! Connected TV and this Yahoo! Developer Network. Having CQC available via TV remote on any one of the growing presence of supported TVs would be another interface option.

I am not a Java programmer so this is way beyond me...

It could be done I'm sure. It's also way beyond me.

I was just reading up on HTML5 and that looks promising also...

You couldn't ever write something like a RIVA client in HTML, no matter how fancy they make it. By the time they made it powerful enough to do that, it wouldn't really be a markup language anymore.

That's an awfully bold statement, you may end up eating your hat on that one...

It would require doing networking, threading, etc... There just wouldn't ever be any justification for doing that kind of stuff in HTML. It would have gone so far past it's intended purpose and become so complex that it wouldn't make any sense.

Dean, just because it wouldn't make any sense, doesn't mean it won't happen at some point.

I wrote about, 80% of a Java RIVA Client when I was playing around with CQC. If someone wants to finish it let me know and I will get you the source.

Not really. They just embedded a Java based version of the program into a browser. They didn't write the game in HTML.
