The following demos were captured on a PC running SUSE Linux 10, and GLS³ installed. The videos showcase some of the features of GLS³, and for more information on all the details, refer to the Design Documentation. The specs of the desktop are: Pentium 4 1.8 Ghz with 512KB cache, 384 MB of DDR SD-RAM, and a 40GB 7200 RPM disk drive.
Demo 1: Flash (2.2 MB) / X-ViD (1.4 MB)
Demonstrates As-You-Type Searching, constraining search results according to specific metadata, and how incremental indexing allows for a high degree of consistency.
Demo 2: Flash (4.6 MB) / X-ViD (3.7 MB)
This video shows the creation of Virtual Collections (the containers for your data that list their contents dynamically at runtime), how the assignment of Tags or Search Queries affect their contents, and how these queries or tags are combined based on the hierarchical structure of the Virtual Collections.
Demo 3: Flash (1.9 MB) / X-ViD (1.8 MB)
Demonstrates a simple Address Book application that uses the GLS³ API to store its information in a schema the application developer defined. Information is made shared, and thus is accessible by all GLS³ applications.
Demo 4: Flash (0.9 MB) / X-ViD (0.9 MB)
Demonstrates the Pseudo File System, glscubefs, and how it can be used by any non-GLS³ application to access and retrieve Documents.
The source code of GLS³ is licensed under the GPL. Although currently still in early Beta, we thought we should give you a peek of what we are working to achieve. At anytime, please feel free to contact us.
The project is apparently quite dead. Many reasons, but the usual one, there "not being enough time" makes the top of the list!
