I have been programming applications using Java and VB6 for a long time now. Have done a lot of web dev work using ASP and PHP as well. I have come to the realization that for programming cross-platform database driven applications Java is a beautiful language but after working on a couple of commercial projects recently I realized that there is very little I can do to keep my Java program safe from being reverse engineered. I have a blog entry about it at http://pathan.blogsome.com .
I have been looking into Open Source solutions for cross-platform C++ APIs which are powerful enough to provide the most widely used features for database driven applications. I came across QT and wxWindows. I also found a cross-platform threading API called zthreads on sf.net.
So now I want to ask the C++ gurus on this forum their experience in developing cross-platform C++ APIs they have used and have been happy with. I am trying to target Windows, Linux, Unix and MacOS.
My aim is to use an API like what Java provides. With a database abstraction layer, a powerful GUI, a cross-platform threading model etc. suilt right into one API. I know there are a lot of different projects which provide code for each one of these features seperately. But having One API to give all features is priceless.
Discussion of programming on Linux, including shell scripting, perl, python, c/c++, mono, java. Whatever tickles your fancy.
