Hello folks !
I'm needing an online partition editor that suppors GP format, and my first reflexion came to tuxguitar.
Being written in Java, is it possible to use it without any modification in a website, how then ? Else what are those modifications ?
Thanks !

PS : Sorry for my bad english =)

TuxGuitar is written in java, but uses SWT and it have native libraries (non java).

So you can't run it as a simple applet.
you can only make some applet that download and then load these native libraries from the web. and todo this you would need to change the policy of applet to grant all privileges. and user must "trust" on this applet.
By finally you will get a desktop application loaded from the web.
So maybe make a Java Web Start package will be a best idea than an applet.

The second option is rewrite all gui package to use "swing" instead of swt.
