Author(s): Shital Bhor, Poonam Chaudhri, Priyanka Darekar, Pooja Gharage
Abstract: Our aim is to develop a shell and kernel in Java that will be able to run on most of the available operating systems that supports Java Runtime Environment. The shell and kernel would be designed in such a way that the beneath platform (operating system and hardware) should not impact on the syntax and output. Also there should be a unique set of commands that we are going to develop, which will be same throughout various Operating systems where we will be using this shell. The other aim is to develop an advanced set of commands that will prove very useful for the users when using this shell. The advance commands will be file utilities such as file splitter, file/folder locker, file/folder zipper, an inbuilt rich text editor, ftp client etc. This all utilities are general and users all time need them, we are going to provide them in the shell itself so that only installing the shell will avail the user with all of the utilities mentioned.
