Nexaweb Platform 4.5 and Studio 3.0 released

by Rob Thornton on Jan 03, 2007 |

Nexaweb released version 4.5 of their Nexaweb Platform recently, adding Section 508 Accessibility compliance. Along with the Platform release, Nexaweb Studio, an Eclipse ATF-based IDE for web 2.0 applications, version 3.0 was released.

Nexaweb Platform is composed of two parts, Nexaweb Server and Nexaweb Client. The server piece is a set of Servlets and Listeners that communicates over their proprietary message bus to a rich internet application running on the client. The client supports declarative XML UI definitions and programmatic definitions. It also provides data binding as well as a framework that can be extended with custom UI widgets.

Nexaweb Studio is a set of plugins for Eclipse that provide new Eclipse Perspectives to aid in RIA development. The new perspectives allow for drag and drop of UI components and wizards for event registration.

Nexaweb describes the products:

Delivering the industry's first Enterprise Web 2.0 (EW2.0) solution in compliance with Section 508 Accessibility, the only universal client framework supporting both Ajax and Java, and enhanced integration support with data services and relational databases.

Studio 3.0 is an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that offers enterprise Web developers, Ajax, J2EE(TM)/Java(TM) developers and software engineers a standards-based, visual design environment for creating EW2.0 applications. With Version 3.0, developers now have Ajax user interface (UI) capabilities through plug-ins to the Eclipse Ajax Toolkit Framework (ATF) and Web Standard Tools (WST) projects.

Nexaweb focused on Section 508 Accesibility in the Nexaweb Platform because of the needs of enterprises working with the Federal market. Section 508 Accessibility support required numerous changes to allow developers to create accessible widgets.
