Software AG Enhances AJAX-based Application Designer

Version 2.1 of AJAX-based design time and run time environment

Software AG announced enhancements to crossvision Application Designer, a powerful design-time and run-time environment that uses AJAX to create sophisticated Web-browser interfaces as part of a Service Oriented Architecture. Version 2.1 of the company’s Application Designer now includes Generic Web Service support, WYSIWYG layout capabilities and a powerful AJAX editor/word processor through Software AG’s recent alliance with pintexx.

The announcement was made at the Gartner Application Integration and Web Services Summit in San Diego, California.

Software AG’s crossvision Application Designer accelerates and simplifies the design and deployment of rich Internet applications that use the AJAX pattern. With Application Designer, desktop-like capabilities can now be enabled for the browser without requiring developers to code complex JavaScript, HTML or CSS.

Once applications created using Application Designer are designed and tested, they can be rapidly deployed on a broad range of Java application servers, including Tomcat, JBoss, IBM Websphere, BEA Weblogic and others. Each application can be immediately accessed – both through a browser and as a Java SWT client.

Last year Application Designer was announced as the first AJAX-based product to include a user interface control for Google maps. Seamless interaction with Google maps is one of more than 80 AJAX graphical controls shipped with Application Designer. These controls improve the speed and convenience of developing composite applications. Enhancements to version 2.1 of Application Designer include:
  • Generic Web Service Support – enables Web applications for Web services, including page creation and service testing;
  • Additional layout capabilities – design and maintain layouts faster and more intuitively with new WYSIWYG preview window, including drag & drop and move/insert controls;
  • AJAX based HTML editor/word processor – offers familiar word processing tools and customizable features for HTML text editing and control.
Application Designer provides the RIA environment for crossvision Application Composer, supporting the building of composite applications using Web services created and managed within the crossvision SOA suite.

In addition, Application Designer provides the RIA environment for Software AG’s Natural Business Services, enabling Natural developers to conveniently create sophisticated browser-based user interfaces.

"Thanks to the rapid popularization of AJAX, people are able to create highly functional applications in completely new and simple ways," said Dr. Peter Kuerpick, Member of the Board, Software AG and responsible for the development of crossvision. "The combination of our crossvision Application Designer and Application Composer sets a straight course directly from a Service-Oriented Architecture to the hands and eyes of the individual employee with a vital job to accomplish."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
