We are deciding on the architecture for a warehouse application where most of the user interaction is going to be through ansi/vt100 terminals.
Does anyone know of a library of clases we can use to control de terminals? e.g. clrscr(), gotoxy(), etc.
I posted to this forum since it seemed the most appropiate.

Have a look at
<A HREF="http://www.pitman.co.za/projects/charva</a rel="nofollow">." TARGET=_blank>http://www.pitman.co.za/projects/charva. "Charva" is a library of Java classes that implements a "graphical" user interface on text terminals such as the VT100. It emulates the functionality of the AWT and Swing classes, so that programs written with AWT/Swing should be easy to port to Charva. It uses the "ncurses" library to handle the I/O to the terminal. I wrote it for Linux but it should work on any Unix flavor that supports ncurses.
