Backbase Launches AJAX Struts Edition

Software Simplifies Application Modernization for Existing Struts Apps by Adding RIAs

Backbase, a leading provider of AJAX-based Rich Internet Application (RIA) software and solutions, has announced the general availability of the Backbase AJAX Struts Edition. The combining of Struts with AJAX extends the lifetime of Struts applications by adding a richer user interface, without having to rebuild the entire application. Backbase-powered Rich Internet Applications improve end-user productivity, increase customer satisfaction and can make significant sales contributions to a company’s bottom line.

Existing Struts applications are limited by the inherent shortcomings of HTML, which was originally developed to display static documents. Organizations attempting to modernize these applications encounter several obstacles, such as the lack of appropriate tools or developer skills. The Backbase AJAX Struts Edition addresses this by providing a richer and more interactive presentation tier technology, which can be integrated in a step-by-step fashion by anyone with Struts web development knowledge.

“This newest edition of our Backbase AJAX software can revitalize business-critical Struts applications without compromising the reliability of the existing applications,” says Jouk Pleiter, CEO of Backbase, “Global 2000 companies and other large organizations will see an almost immediate return on investment.”

The Backbase AJAX Struts Edition includes both the proven Backbase AJAX technology, and Struts-specific functionality in the form of Struts Taglibs. This ensures that AJAX functionality can be added to existing Struts projects, with minimal changes to the original code. The AJAX functionality includes more powerful form validation; as well as, support for single-page interfaces that replace the traditional page refresh with a partial page update. The Backbase AJAX Struts Edition also includes an Eclipse-plugin and can be deployed on BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, Oracle 10g, JBoss and Tomcat.

A 30-day evaluation version of the Backbase AJAX Struts Edition is available at http://www.backbase.com/#dev/download/struts_edition.xml and additional information on all the Backbase AJAX software solutions is available at http://www.backbase.com.
