At day I work as an ABAP developer in civil service.

At night I am developing WizardMMO, a web-based MMORPG using HTML5 Javascript for the client, Java for the server and MongoDB as database backend. You can follow my progress on my development blog.

comment how do I convert a image to it's rgba values to write to a canvas?
Are you loading an image from a different domain than where your javascript file is loaded from? If so, your canvas gets "tainted by cross-origin data" and certain features (like getImageData) are disabled.

comment GPL and code producing software
This question is only vaguely related, but might give you a better understanding of how the GPL works with remotely used software components: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/269316/…

Just to be clear: The recent bad press about Java security was only in the context of malicious Java applets. They are a danger for users who visit malicious websites. From the perspective of the webmaster, Java is perfectly save for both servlets and applets (unless, or course, you build your own security vulnerabilities). When your users trust you, it is not unreasonable to ask them to enable Java for your website.

@Bas Both Java applets and Flash had various security vulnerabilities in the past which allowed websites to do stuff on the users computer they were not supposed to be doing. For that reason some users have them disabled completely or only enable them on websites they trust.

@Bas only in a very limited way. You could, for example, have a "auto-format" button which submits the whole content of the editor window to the server when clicked and then have the server respond by returning the complete HTML document with the content formated. But that would be a lot slower than doing it with Javascript on the client-side.
