Run Web-Enabled Applications from the IDE

VirtualUI - Run web-enabled applications from the IDEA distinctive characteristic of VirtualUI web-enabled applications is their ability to be executed from the desktop, as usual, and also be called through a Thinfinity VirtualUI Server to be remotely executed from any modern web browser. This web enabling process, however, will most probably need some testing and debugging. A comparison stage between both the desktop and the web running mode is also often essential in order to fine tune certain details. This is why Thinfinity VirtualUI was prepared to run web-enabled applications from the IDE, working together with the development environment you use when running the application in debug mode.

Passing command line arguments to VirtualUI apps

VirtualUI command-line argumentsAn application can accept command line arguments when invoked. This allows the user to send additional information to the application when it is executed.

When an application is launched, the OS passes the command line arguments to the application as a collection of string values, using a white-space as separator.

Applications receive external arguments on a regular basis: when you open a document by clicking on its icon, the OS selects the associated executable program and calls it, sending the full document filename to the program as an argument.

Thinfinity VirtualUI allows you to send external arguments to applications in a transparent way, which works exactly like sending arguments from the command line.
