Software AG's Web 2.0 Development Tool Now Available at no Cost


Wednesday, February 28, 2007; 05:20 AM

Software AG announced the availability of a free community edition of Crossvision Application Designer. Crossvision Application Designer is a state-of-the-art Web 2.0 application design and runtime environment. It allows for quick and easy implementation of new applications, combining existing in-house applications and Web applications. This free version, available online for non-commercial use, offers the same functionality as the commercial version.

Crossvision Application Designer is useful for organizations that want to develop composite applications for use within a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). This free community edition is particularly important for educational institutions as a cost-effective way of giving students access to the latest software development technologies. Crossvision Application Designer follows Software AG's strategy of supporting organizations in utilizing their existing IT infrastructure in new and innovative ways. Software AG is committed to allowing customers to enhance and extend existing applications and continue to use them in modern IT environments while reducing development and maintenance costs.

Software AG's Crossvision Application Designer accelerates and simplifies the design and deployment of rich Internet applications (RIA) with AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript + XML). With Crossvision Application Designer, desktop-like capabilities can now be enabled for the browser without requiring developers to code complex JavaScript, HTML or CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). Once applications created using Crossvision 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 through browsers and via a Java SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit) client.

Software AG is committed to a standards-based approach to helping customers build an SOA. The company is a member of the OpenAJAX Alliance, which has a mission to advance the adoption of AJAX. Software AG is also an add-in member of the Eclipse Foundation.
