News: SweetDEV RIA 1.0 : Advanced Ajax tags - released

  1. Ideo Technologies announces the availability of SweetDEV RIA, an Ajax-based tags library focused on accelerating and simplifying the development of Rich Internet Applications for J2EE platforms. SweetDEV RIA contains widgets such as with Datagrid, Combo multiselect, Virtual window, Click to open, Expand/Collapse, Excel export, client /server communication. More components like Treeview, Portlet, Menu, Calendar are to come in future releases. To give an idea of the nature of these components, datagrid features include:
    • Drag and drop columns resizing
    • Automatic datagrid resizing
    • Columns multisorting
    • Line expand / collapse
    • Excel Export
    • Each cell of the datagrid can include a tag (calendar, combo, etc.)
    Developers can continue development of applications in frameworks like Struts, because SweetDEV RIA widgets can plug into your JSP pages. JavaScript expertise if not necessary; usage of the RIA tags is enough. SweetDEV RIA is available under 3 licenses, designed to meet the usage and distribution requirements of users:

  2. Looks like a bit late. ZK and Echo2 both good and available for a while.
  3. Thanks for your comment. SweetDEV RIA components have more features those in ZK or Echo2. Just take 2 minutes to look at our datagrid. (Drag and drop columns resizing, multi sort,excel export,...). Our goal is to deliver advanced components and not simple ones. Just try it!
  4. Looks like a bit late. ZK and Echo2 both good and available for a while.
    ZK and Echo2 require a presentation language other than JSP. It might be more appropriate to compare this to Backbase or ICEFaces.
  5. I did some research on AJAX libraries, so far None of them fit our need. Most frame work put unneccessary burden on the server side. The final result is that we decide to write our code, move most controls and processes to the client side. AJAX should focus more on the client side -Hank http://www.imhaha.com
  6. Check out this also from Coldtags suite: http://www.servletsuite.com/jsp.htm#ajax
  7. I don't agree. Rather, I pefer the thin-client architecture. It is too painful to maintain business logic at both client and server. Anyway, if you like client solution, take a look at DOJO and GWT. The former is complete, the later is primitive but it is made by Google.
  8. GWT vs Java2Script Pacemaker[ Go to top ]

    J2S has the same idea as GWT but working with SWT widgets. I think this is a wonderful OSS project. http://j2s.sourceforge.net/
  9. It is cool, so j2s is the first one doing this!?
  10. Re: Yet another new Ajax framework[ Go to top ]

    +1 !! Yet another framework... It looks like pretty late for these components ! After playing with the demo, I am sorry guys for the work, but this looks crappy (looking at the code.. arrghhhh what a bad implementation!))) and you charge 650 for that... man that is the price of an complete IDE ! Echo2 looks good ! Stephan
  11. Echo 2 is not a JSP/JSF taglib. Customers pay a lot to get RIA "COMPONENTS" that integrates well into their applications and does not force you to change the presentation technology. Based on JSP/JSF standards, SweetDEV RIA does not reqire javascript coding, it's a big advantage. Does Echo2 or ZK prvide all that ? - Drag and drop columns resizing - Automatic datagrid resizing - Columns multisorting - Line expand / collapse - Excel Export As for 650 ... it's a one day cost of an experiences developer. There is always a choise: buy or develop.
  12. side question. HttpUnit does not work well for the testing purpose, which tools are you using for automatical testing? -Hank http://imhaha.com web-based messenger
  13. for acceptance testing via the brower (so all ajax fireworks work properly) try Selenium from Thoughtworks (http://www.openqa.org/selenium/), it's open-source of course.
  14. We are using Selenium and JsUnit for SweetDEV RIA. They are launched by maven 2 on each built. You can run tests online on our web site on "Quality Assurance" topic (check for "Selenium tests" and "JsUnit Tests") Grégory

    Thanks, I will give it a try. -Hank http://imhaha.com a web-based messenger
  16. Good job guys[ Go to top ]

    Well we've been using SweetDEV-RIA components for a few months now in our banking applications. We've gone through a painful process of testing other frameworks and components, and it's SweetDEV-RIA that best fit our needs. What seduced us the most were advanced datagrid features like out-of-the-box user preferences persistence, and possibility to put any valid JSP content (including custom tags) inside datagrid cells. The use of combo multiselect is of a huge importance in our complex forms, as well as advanced Excel export features. Then, it's easily integrated with web frameworks, struts-based in our case. Not to forget that our Java developers really appreciated the fact that no JavaScript experience is needed to fully use SweetDEV-RIA components. Congratulations on the 1.0 release guys and keep up the good work!
  17. Re: Good job guys[ Go to top ]

    ... Knowing you're a team member of the company that sells the SweetDEV-RIA framework, congratulating these guys is congratulating yourself - is this fair ? In another hand, your're contributing to the buzz !!!! S.
