News: Coldtags suite 3.4, JSP tag suite, released

  1. Coldbeans Software has announced a major release of Coldtags suite. This suite provides over 340 JSP custom tags for common programming tasks faced by JSP developers. Coldtags suite comes with a wide range out of the box ready-to-use the most common control components that are repeatedly required for the development of JEE applications. They include standard user interface components like buttons, lists, edits, grids, menus, tables, tree views, calendars, ajax etc. With this suite developers and web designers no need to worry about writing browser-specific HTML or JavaScript. All controls are carefully written and tested to operate equally well on major Internet browsers as well JEE servers. At this moment this collection is the largest known repository of the reusable web components for JSP (and/or Coldfusion) developers.

  2. Open Source?[ Go to top ]

    Tags are distributed individually, and each file (jar, tld, css, etc..) needs to be download separately (not very convenient). No version number in manifest file. Documentation (web site) is pretty good, I am using some ajax tags, I have come across some issues but the response from Coldbeans support was quick and helpful. I guess the big deal (for me and I guess for most developers) is that it's not Open Source. I understand Coldbeans has put a considerable effort behind this, but the Open Source model is the only way to make it a top-class library.
