Projects / Platen


Platen is a Java library for working with Movable Type blog databases. It is currently very simple, and just a proof of concept for using Hibernate to access a MySQL database backend for a Movable Type blog with Java. But the intent is to eventually be able to write an alternative front-end to that database so it is not necessary to use the Perl-based Movable Type software to render the blog Web pages.

    Release Notes: This release translates the various MT elements in the template text from the database into a Velocity Template Language that will work with the various Platen classes. The conversion is done on the fly with a relatively simple parser. There is initial code for rendering templates with Velocity.
