webCDwriter

webCDwriter can be used to make the CD- and DVD-writer(s) connected to a Linux box available to all users in your network. It consists of the server CDWserver and the clients webCDcreator and rcdrecord. CDWserver stores the files transmitted by the clients, reserves the CD-writer and controls the CD-writer using cdrecord. webCDcreator is a Java applet that runs within your browser or by Java Web Start, assists you when putting together a CD, and transmits the files. Finally rcdrecord is a command line client that tries to offer the functionality of cdrecord over the network with full multi-user support.

            Another thought is that since this is Java based (I think), it may be the Fedora IceTea java package is the issue.

            Not a java person, so I have no idea.

            Fedora 8.
            Won't work with Fedora 8. Not sure if it's a config issue or a package issue, but it tries to start and then just takes up CPU time. Debug set to 9 doesn't show any errors in the log file.

            Great product!
            I work for an ISV, and we burn custom CDs for our clients. I've implemented a LAMP frontend that hits the CDWriter daemon backend to create the custom CDs. We also use the Java frontend to do more general burning around the office. We would have had to do a LOT more work to accomplish these tasks without the help of webCDWriter! It is a great product.

            Web CD Writer
            Excellent product. Our (non profit) organisation has been using it for nearly a year now. It lets all our staff create CDs without requiring CD writers or CD writing software on client machines.

            We have had excellent feedback from users on using this service.

            Thanks

            Excelent
            After more than 2 years of use, I could say this program is a "must have" to anyone with a (cd|dvd)writer even without a network.

            keep on.
