developerWorks: Coding with KParts
Author: JT Smith
David Faure has recently published an article for IBM developerWorks which gives an overview of KParts, touching on CORBA, XParts, XML-GUI and DCOP. "KParts is also used in more high-level interfaces, such as the TextEditor interface. The former is a complete interface that models the API of a text editor so that applications can interchangeably use any text editor available that implements this interface. vi users will love being able to type mail in KMail using a vi text-editor component (such a component is under development). A general ImageViewer interface is under development as well."
