Backbase links AJAX, Java

Backbase this week is introducing Enterprise Ajax 4.2 for Java, a version of its AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) framework.for Java developers.

With the framework, these developers can build AJAX-based RIAs leveraging their Java development skills, said Michel Gerin, vice president of marketing at Backbase. Developers can code using JavaServer Faces (JSF), Spring MVC or Struts.

"What [sets] this apart from the other AJAX tools is this one allows the Java developers to work the same way that they usually work," without having to work in JavaScript or XML, Gerin said.

Enterprise Ajax for Java 4.2 features modules functioning with different development technologies such as Spring or Struts. Data services in the product make it easy to populate AJAX widgets with data from a Java server, Backbase said. This is done through use of the data binding mechanism in the Backbase Client Framework. JSON and XML are supported.

The JSF edition hides complexities of client-side JavaScript development and offers JSF components, the company said. Developers also can mix in XML and HTML. Enterprise Ajax Client widgets are integrated and support is featured for third-party AJAX components such as Google gadgets.

Also offered with Backbase 4.2 is a Community License allowing for free development and deployment on two servers or CPUs per company. To get support for the product, users can purchase annual subscriptions for US$2,500 for a two-CPU configuration or use online forums at bdn.backbase.com.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
