DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.


Played a bunch of Puyo Puyo Sun 64.


I believe when it comes to GUI time to demo something like a game, I will do Puyo Puyo since it is a rather nice game. I will not be making a game where there are four blocks in a specific pattern which fall from the top, since they no longer deserve any credit (due to their insanely litigious behavior).


ImplGenerator should be complete now. So the source database is created so I can somewhat start on the generation of packages as needed and implementing all of those execution paths. I still need to fully implement the parser however so that I can read more JSON data (non string literals are not implemented currently).


Before my JSR353 implementation is complete all I need is to implement the remaining bits of ImplParser, ImplReader, ValueInput (for parsing actual objects), and BaseDecoder.


Actually, what I need is an engine that can go to/from specified data formats for importing and exporting of JSON data in PackageInfo. Right now it is all very manual, extracting the name, version, and dependency information. With an enumeration similar to argument handling, this would make things much easier to maintain and will allow and easy to/from format when needed.


Because the way I am currently heading, I will be writing saving and loading in two places, multiple times over, which is a huge mess.


I slept much, I should get to work on the enumeration thing. This would be similar to ArgumentParsing. Although since it depends on the JSON code it should not be in common, otherwise common would pull in JSON support which does not need to occur.


I have a base class down, but before I should proceed I should remove a bunch of warnings that I have lying around.


Before I do that, I am going to have three classes that are very similar: ArgumentParsing, MapOptionParser, and JsonHandler. Of which ArgumentParsing is the most implemented and MapOptionParser is just a stub. Since they all use enumerations with annotations, I need to create a base class that they extend off which provides all of the functionality needed to promote their interfaces.
