ICEsoft Announces ICEfacesT Enterprise For Thin Client AJAX

Release Implements Thin Client AJAX and AJAX Push Technology

ICEfaces and AJAX Push truly enable a new class of dynamic rich web application, where the user has an instantaneous view of the dynamic data they are interacting with, and paves the way for multi-user collaborative applications that were previously unachievable with a lightweight web model.

With ICEfaces Community Edition (CE), developers can build and deploy rich Internet applications at no cost. The ICEfaces community is thriving, counting well over 4000 members since the first CE release in April.  The Enterprise Edition (EE) is a commercial upgrade that goes beyond the basic features of CE, and adds enterprise-class scalability and robustness, as well as several enterprise-level support options.

Specifically, ICEfaces EE adds the following additional features to the Community Edition:

* Advanced Connection Management: Provides connection heartbeating to maintain connection health, and provide additional connect status indicators. Also supports redirection in face of lost connections.

* Asynchronous HTTP Server: Provides Enterprise-level scalability for ICEfaces applications that leverage Ajax Push technology and asynchronous mode deployments. A powerful feature that is unique to ICEfaces.

* Clustered Deployment Support: ICEfaces applications can now be deployed in clustered environments. Specifically, ICEfaces Enterprise Edition now includes a BroadcastRenderManager capable of performing Ajax Push across multiple nodes in a cluster, and documented configurations for clustered deployments of ICEfaces applications.
