NAB (Native Application Builder) project provides C++ GUI building environment. It can create the GUI application visually and it can generate C++ GUI source code automatically. Once the source code was generated, you can make binary code for multiple platforms including mobile and embedded devices, such as Windows, Linux, MacOS, and several real-time operating systems. Conceptually, this is similar to SWT and JFace but NAB tool was written in C++ and designed for use in C++ applications.

In this presentation and demonstration, if you are application developer then you can get the valuable information for new way to GUI development. And if you are tool developer then you can get the information of the way to implement the own GUI libraries including the information of the NAB API and framework.

At now, NAB project provides the plug-in for MWT run-time library distributed by WideStudio open source project. But we aim for an extensible framework for various libraries.

Shigeki is the project lead of the Native Application Builder (NAB) project - a DSDP project focused on making multi-platform, extensible, GUI builder for native binary applications standing on the variety toolkits. He is also a member of the DSDP Project Management Committee (PMC). Shigeki has over 16 years of experience in automotive software/hardware development in Japan, and over 5 years of experience in internet/mobile streaming. He also has experience in activity of internet/software community, and now he works for Fujitsu as open source software strategist. Shigeki holds around a hundred of patents, and he has written several articles and books, most recently book is the "Understanding the Streaming" from Ohm-sha Japan.
