MagicTree Beta Two Publicly Available

Here we go with the first public release of MagicTree, unimaginatively called Beta Two. MagicTree is a penetration tester productivity tool, it allows easy and straightforward data consolidation, querying, external command execution, and (yeah!) report generation. In case you wonder, “Tree” is because its stores all the data in a tree, and “Magic” because it is designed to magically do the most cumbersome and boring part of penetration testing – data management and reporting. See What is MagicTree for more details.

Porting MagicTree to Mac OS X

Well, MagicTree is written in Java, so in theory we shouldn't need to port anywhere. But, as they say, "In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not." Actually most things worked without any porting, which is a good thing. Still, a few things had to be done.

To get more Mac OS-like look and feel we had to make MagicTree show the menu bar on top of the screen, rather than in the main frame, respond to application menu items, such as "About" and "Quit" (and remove those menu items from File and Help respectively) and to get the application icon look pretty.

MagicTree Beta One Release Delayed

We are very sorry to say that we have to delay Beta One release of MagicTree. It was planned for the beginning of April, but due to unexpectedly high consulting workload we will have to delay it at least until the beginning of May.

There is just one major feature that is missing for the Beta. It is Microsoft Word reporting. We have reporting in OpenOffice format, but MS Word still needs to be implemented.

Autocomplete and Input History for MagicTree

Components for Java Swing

Most modern user interfaces remember user input and provide autocomplete function. When you start typing a URL in a browser location bar, you get a list of URLs matching the pattern you have typed.

We wanted similar functionality for MagicTree. Whenever user has to type something, whether it is a command line, an XPath expression or a search term, we wanted the application to remember the previous input and provide autocompletion. Now we have that:
