TIBCO Brings Mature AJAX Technology to Everyone Now

New TIBCO General Interface Release Reduces AJAX Development Risks

TIBCO Software today announced the availability of TIBCO General Interface version 3.1 Professional Edition, which includes enhanced features and a bold new licensing and pricing model. The latest version of TIBCO’s award-winning AJAX development framework and tooling brings the industry’s most mature AJAX technology to the far reaches of the developer community, offering a head start for building Rich Internet Applications based upon five years of proven enterprise deployments.

With the version 3.1 Professional Edition, TIBCO General Interface is being made available to build and test AJAX-enabled applications for free. Developers and organizations of any type pay nothing to deploy publicly. For non-public deployments, TIBCO offers affordable license purchasing options for small user groups. Now, developers looking to build AJAX-based applications can leverage the power of TIBCO General Interface Professional Edition to instantly add robust, feature-rich capabilities to their Web applications.

"We don’t want to impose a specific 'one-size-fits-all' approach to acquiring software," said Ram Menon, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing, TIBCO Software. "Our new pricing and licensing model brings the proven enterprise benefits of General Interface to every corner of the developer community. We believe that this differentiated strategy will provide the flexibility for individuals and organizations to choose the best approach for developing, testing and deploying Rich Internet Applications using one of the most mature tools available today."

The new release also features faster drag-and-drop visual authoring tools for standard XML & XSD, SOAP and WSDL communications, as well as HTTP/S GET and POST operations, dramatically reducing scripting time. In addition, users will have access to the TIBCO General Interface Developer Community, an existing online resource currently used by thousands of developers. And with its add-in architecture, TIBCO General Interface version 3.1 also enables additional 3rd party packages to easily plug into its development framework.

Unlike most Web development tools that require additional software such as plug-ins, Active-X controls or Java applets to be installed or added to the browser, TIBCO General Interface works with existing capabilities of the browser, enabling users to get a full featured application instantly from a URL. The product offers a significantly reduced development time and cost through use of familiar APIs, visual authoring tools, step-through debugging and extensible, reusable components. As testimony to the product’s maturity, the visual tools are themselves a Web-based application powered by TIBCO General Interface – a full AJAX IDE running as an AJAX application.

"With TIBCO General Interface, we’ve been able to create attractive and user-friendly Web applications in a very short period of time," said Herbert Quartel, developer, LogicaCMG. "The TIBCO General Interface toolkit promotes reuse and sharing of functionality. In fact, we were able to utilize the web services that were already in place to execute business transactions within a service-oriented architecture," added Quartel.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
