Having run a few math trades using just Trademaxmizer, I've made a few formating errors. So in preperation for running a daily math trade at this year's Burning Man, we decided to write something that could quickly and easily get information parsed out for processing a trade.

It's open source, here's the link. The install instructions are also in the attached link.

https://github.com/abecorn/abecornlite

I'll include a screen shot of the interface and one of processed results.

If anyone is also interested, we will have lots of games to gift at Burning Man you can use to participate in the trades. We'll have plenty of other gifts as well. We'll be at 5:45 and Illusion running trade results daily at noon. We're open 8:30am-2:30pm to log your gifts.

The basic rules difference are that the host (house) always wants and offers everything listed. Participants donating gifts will have their items and name/contact info (optional) logged and offered by the house. People without gifts can offer non-tangibles or will be given some gaming trinket to offer up in the trade.

Since the internet isn't available we're using scrapbooks, poloroids, and index cards for documenting the items. Participants use white boards to write down which items they're interested in and come back before the trade results to update their lists.

For what we're mainly using this for, we didn't put in an easy way to do duplicate protection.

I skipped over this thread originally but maybe I shouldn't have... I just finished converting my trademax java applet gui to a java application... but since I did the applet with Swing so isn't the application... I didn't know Oracle has deprecated Swing! This JavaFX framework looks interesting!
