New technology from Wolfram Research is designed to simplify the creation of graphical user interfaces for a wide range of custom implementations. GUIKit for use with Mathematica is built on Java. It may be downloaded at no charge from the Wolfram Web site.

The tool provides a high-level Mathematic expression syntax for defining graphical user interfaces and a runtime environment for managing and deploying these reusable definitions. Users can quickly build innovative applications that capitalize on Mathematica’s computational, graphical, and language capabilities. The applications can then perform sophisticated computations with just a few mouse clicks.

GUIKit can be used to build interfaces to databases or to generate interactive graphics, presentations, and simulations. According to the company, the interfaces call on the power of Java, but are much easier to write than if done using Java directly. Unlike programs written in C and other languages that do not allow parameters to be changed once the code is compiled, interfaces created with this tool can be adjusted at runtime based on user input or Mathematica results. It is built for Mathematica 5.0 or later, will be included with future releases of Mathematica, and is available for all platforms on which Mathematica and Java are supported.
