[sip-comm-dev] GSoC 2008 : Project Idea - Spell Checker


#1

Hi,

I have already download the existing SIP communicator and configured it on
IntelliJIdea. (Because I'm much familiar on it.) and it is working fine. I
have used the VM parameters which have specified to be used on Eclipse and
they are working same on IntelliJIdea as well.

Anyway really I was so happy when I get to know that you basically want
users to be able to select the language they are typing in and to check
they're spelling or get wrong words underlined with red while
typing.Becauselast January I was involved in my final year project,
which is a J2ME
application which consists both chat engine and a gaming module. In the chat
engine we already given the ability to chat on native language as well. As
Sri Lankans we just made it with two options either to use Sinhala or
English. So I think that I can use that knowledge for the developments of
this spell checker also.

So may I know whether you are expecting to use Unicode for different
languages and how should I specify the which languages that you are hoping
to interagte with SIP communicator?

I'm bit puzzeled with whether this is the right pace to contact mentors and
get to know about the projects. If there is a specific mailing list, please
let me know.

Thanx alot.

Rgards,
Shanika

Oh I didn't know this IntelliJIdea before... why is it better than eclipse
to you ?

Yes it's a great feature indeed. I totally agree .

Because last January I was involved in my final year project, which is a
J2ME application which consists both chat engine and a gaming module. In the
chat engine we already given the ability to chat on native language as well.
As Sri Lankans we just made it with two options either to use Sinhala or

So may I know whether you are expecting to use Unicode for different
languages and how should I specify the which languages that you are hoping
to interagte with SIP communicator?

In fact, I don't if this will be still up-to-date but last year we thought
that any language that has a MySpell dictionary ( Used with thunderbird and
openoffice at this time, I don't know if it's still the case ).

We thought of a possibility to install a new dictionary through the plugin
manager, and of the possibility to choose the language from a combobox which
will appear in the chat window. These were guidelines we had previously.
I don't know if Emil or the mentor concerned with this subject is still in
that mood.

I'm bit puzzeled with whether this is the right pace to contact mentors
and get to know about the projects. If there is a specific mailing list,
please let me know.

I found this e-mail adress while browsing the pages of sip communicator
official site:

*gsoc-mentors@sip-communicator.org*

But for technical questions here might be the right place.

Cheers,

JD

I am afraid it isn't :slight_smile:

If there is a specific mailing list,
please let me know.

You could use the one indicated on our project page (I think you have
already posted there several times :slight_smile: ) but we prefer having most
communication through the GSoC web app so that we could take it into
account during the evaluation process.

See you there!

Cheers and good luck!
Emil

to you ?

Its just a user friendly development environment like eclipse, but its not
free as eclipse. I'm not saying IntelliJIdea is better than eclipse, I just
mentioned that I have configured SIP communicator as well on IntelliJIdea.
But I hope to use eclipse for further developments :slight_smile:

thought that any language that has a MySpell dictionary ( Used with
thunderbird and openoffice at this time, I don't know if it's still the case
).

Yes MySpell dictionary supports for some languages. If that is perfect for
the project scope, can use it. Thanx JD.

We thought of a possibility to install a new dictionary through the plugin
manager, and of the possibility to choose the language from a combobox which
will appear in the chat window. These were guidelines we had previously.

Yes, that will be perfect. So the user can choose his preferred language.

I don't know if Emil or the mentor concerned with this subject is still in
that mood.
