AJAX World - ILOG Targets RIA Development on .NET Platform

ILOG Diagrammer for .NET Supports Windows Presentation Foundation, ILOG Gantt for .NET Supports ASP.NET AJAX

ILOG announced that its latest graphics toolkits for the .NET platform are aimed at helping Microsoft developers create rich internet applications (RIA), specifically interactive and visually-rich diagrams and Gantt charts. ILOG Diagrammer for .NET 1.5 and ILOG Gantt for .NET 3.5, ILOG's graphics toolkits for creating diagrams and Gantt charts for the .NET platform, now support Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and ASP.NET AJAX for RIA development.

Developers are also expected to benefit from support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, which will ensure increased productivity. Developers do not have to leave their familiar development environment to generate code and can access the dedicated designers, toolboxes and wizards, and the on-line documentation in the new product without having to learn another tool or language.

ILOG Diagrammer for .NET 1.5 helps developers configure and integrate sophisticated diagram and dashboard displays inside their Windows Forms (desktop) and Web Forms applications. This new release includes out-of-the-box WPF elements that ease the creation of graphical representations, such as entity-relation diagrams, network topologies or business processes. With support for WPF, it now is possible to create appealing graphics using both the template features of WPF and the product's Graph Layout library. ILOG Diagrammer for .NET 1.5 will enable developers to leverage the benefits of WPF using Microsoft Visual Studio, Expression Design, Expression Blend, XAML, videos, animations, and other WPF tools.

ILOG Gantt for .NET 3.5, with support for ASP.NET AJAX technology, allows developers to further ease the creation of RIAs through integrated ASP.NET AJAX controls for planning and scheduling, enabling a more engaging collaboration between the various stakeholders of complex projects for building, managing, and correcting such projects. Browser-based project editing and visualizing represent a core constituent of collaborative project management and project portfolio management solutions.

Diagrammer for .NET already supported that technology which brought a list of controls to visualize and edit diagrams in RIAs and Web applications, and to manage smooth refresh when zooming, panning or interacting with the user interface.

ILOG Diagrammer for .NET 1.5 and ILOG Gantt for .NET 3.5 are now available.
