Backbase Releases New Enterprise AJAX for Java

Introduces New Free Community Edition, New Data Services for Java, New JSF Edition, and New Struts Connector

Backbase introduced Enterprise AJAX 4.2 for Java, a new Java version of the AJAX framework. This new release offers a complete AJAX solution for Java developers, with support for all popular Java frameworks, including Struts, Spring MVC and Java Server Faces (JSF).

Backbase Enterprise AJAX for Java is an AJAX framework that actively supports multiple server-side Java Frameworks. Global 2000 companies can therefore standardize on a single AJAX platform, rather than use a patchwork of various open source AJAX libraries.

"Backbase Enterprise Ajax 4.2 for Java allows Java developers to be a lot more productive with AJAX." Says Dimitra Retsina, Development Manager at Backbase. "Java Developers can quickly develop AJAX based Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) with their existing skill sets".

Free Community License
Backbase 4.2 for Java introduces the new Community License. The new license allows for free development and deployment up to 2 server-CPUs per company.

Data Services
The new Data Services make it easy to populate AJAX widgets with data from a Java server. It uses the data binding mechanism of the Backbase Client Framework, and supports both JSON and XML.

JSF Edition
The JSF Edition hides the complexities of client-side JavaScript development and offers a rich set of AJAX-based JSF Components. Backbase JSF Edition 4.2 uniquely adds the option to mix XML and HTML space. It easily integrates Enterprise AJAX Client Widgets and adds support for 3rd-party AJAX components such as Google gadgets, YUI widgets, and more.

Struts Connector
The Struts Connector 4.2 takes fully advantage of the new Backbase Data Services for data binding. This new version includes support for Struts 2.0. A newly updated sample application is available on the Backbase Developer Network.

Spring MVC support
Spring users can get started quickly with Backbase Enterprise AJAX by simply leveraging the new Data Services for data binding. The Spring framework can also be used as a 'service' layer together with the JSF Edition. Spring AOP can now be used in backing beans or security checks for backing bean methods with usage of "spring-security".
