SOA Vendor Nexaweb Stresses AJAX and Composite Java EE Apps

JavaOne Announcement is Said to Simplify Matters for Developers and Architects

Nexaweb Technologies says it is helping Java, J2EE, Flash, Swing, Struts, JSF, and SWT software developers quickly and easily build next-generation Ajax and composite applications. "Nexaweb is an advanced player amongst suppliers of Rich Internet Application platforms," said Alan Rodger, Research Analyst, Butler Group in a Technology Audit covering the Nexaweb Platform, published as part of the analyst company's Rich Web Applications report. He continues, "The Nexaweb Platform provides excellent, enterprise-class facilities throughout its powerful range of development and deployment capabilities, and is very strongly standards-based."

Integration with the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) architecture has been a consistent focus for Nexaweb since its inception in 2000, the company says. This commitment to support the investment in this architecture by thousands of enterprises and the community of more than 4.5 million developers worldwide has led to a number of visionary and first-to-market technologies including the Nexaweb Universal Client Framework (UCF).

Nexaweb's UCF is a set of three rendering engines implemented in two runtimes (Ajax and Java). All of Nexaweb's clients work in the same way a Web browser works -- they retrieve a file from the server and based on the Markup in the file, render the application by creating all the necessary components to display the application.

"Nexaweb's UCF facilitates the re-use of assets from a number of other deployment environments, including Swing, .NET, and Adobe Flash. Nexaweb characterizes its capabilities as a distributed version of the classic Model -- View -- Controller (MVC) architecture, and it provides a powerful set of Java resources," continued Rodger. "The product offers an extensive degree of control as to where application logic is based and executed. In addition, the product is founded on an object-oriented, Web-oriented architecture that facilitates object re-use on both the client- and server-side."
