The Bar for Enterprise RIA Development Gets Raised Again – By Nexaweb

Nexaweb Platform 4.2 and Nexaweb Studio 2.2 Released

"Today's enterprises seek RIA solutions that not only ease development pains when creating business-critical Internet applications but also leverage existing IT assets - without compromising performance or functionality," said Coach Wei (pictured talking with SYS-CON.TV), Chairman and CTO of Nexaweb, as Nexaweb continued its fast-paced frontal assault on the RIA market by releasing today the latest versions of its RIA software platform, Nexaweb Platform 4.2, and its Eclipse-based IDE, Nexaweb Studio 2.2.

"Our unified programming model is standards-based and fully interoperable with many third party solutions, mitigating future risks associated with both system and user growth and emerging regulatory and standards issues," continued Wei - who is also a speaker at SYS-CON Events' SOA Web Services Edge Conference & Expo in June (June 5-6, Roosevelt Hotel, New York City). 

With the release of Platform 4.2 and Studio 2.2, Nexaweb believes enterprise application developers can gain competitive advantage through advanced new features for creating and migrating business-critical Internet applications that are feature-rich, responsive, maintainable and easily accessible to distributed, cross-enterprise users.

Both from both a functionality and ease-of-development perspective, Nexaweb Platform 4.2 and Studio 2.2 raise the bar for RIA development and takes Nexaweb as a company further along its path to the premier enabler of "occasionally connected computing."

The enhanced Desktop Client feature bridges online and offline computing, fully achieving Nexaweb's "occasionally connected computing" vision.

"Additionally," says Wei, "the declarative data framework and support for Eclipse Web Tools Project enable developers to fully leverage existing investment and skills, and significantly lower the complexity and cost of RIA development and maintenance."

Nexaweb Platform 4.2 and Studio 2.2 key features include:

  • Desktop Client for Offline Support: Provides ability to create installable versions of Nexaweb-powered applications that will automatically update with Web-based deployments, enabling enterprise to run applications in an offline mode. Developer benefits include a single development effort that will support users in various access modes, as well as reduced application TCO and maintenance costs of deployed users.
  • Declarative Data Framework for Ease-of-Development: Eases development and maintenance of data intensive user interfaces (UI) by providing a declarative (no code) method of binding data to UI components. Developer benefits include: quicker creation of data-driven screens; lowered skill set requirements for designers; and more easily maintainable screens due to separation of data and presentation.
  • Plug-in Framework Enforcing Corporate Standards/Re-use: Enables developers to easily create standard, reusable UI components that can: incorporate third-party components; be used across all projects and be maintained by a single team; and simplify maintenance by encapsulating complex UI code into smaller components.
  • Automated Testing Tool Support for Ease of Maintenance: Provides support for industry standard testing tools, such as Mercury QuickTestPro, enabling enterprise quality assurance staffs to carry out successful application deployments.
  • Support for Eclipse Web Tools: Provides a robust tool set that is fully integrated with the new Eclipse Web Tools Project led by IBM and BEA, significantly increasing developer productivity.
Nexaweb Platform 4.2 and Nexaweb Studio 2.2 are available immediately.  For more information visit www.nexaweb.com.

So who really now are the players in "Enterprise RIA"? Aside from Nexaweb who is out there driving this....?

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

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.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
