Bookshelf Applet Download
Bookshelf is small (12K) Java applet for presentation
of weblinks on your web page as books on bookshelves.
It is free. Sorces are available. You can use it "as is" as you like it.
If you have questions, problems or need some special modifications
write me please:
Final version 1.3 -- 01 Jan 2001.
Beta version 1.6 -- 31 Nov 2003.
(you Browser must be Java 1.1 compatible):
Russian Bookshelf (you need cyrillic fonts)
Netscape Communicator may have problems with Java cyrillic on Windows.
If so save this file with name
in Netscape\Program\java\classes directory
20-Mar-00 --- Bug fixed: black colors of vetical books in 256 color mode
03-Apr-00 --- Version 1.2 beta with new features:
1)Titles of books can be redirected.
You can use both "bottom to top" (usuall in Russia) and "top to bottom"
(usuall in America, I think) directions.
2)Some books can be "turned over".
3)Books can be "packed in boxes". So you can think of them as
VC or Computer Games or something else.

WARNING: some years ago I made some internal "cosmetic" changes
in names of directories of Java classes in shelf.jar.
So if you download the latest version of bookshelf after using
very old one be careful about "code" parameter in your html APPLET tag.
Now it is to be: code=ru.sakva.bsh.Webshelf.class .
