Exadel Launches Exadel Visual Component Platform 1.0, AJAX Automated for JSF Application Developers

Rich Component Framework Allows Development Teams Tremendous Control Over Appearance and Style to Dramatically Improve User Experience Through Web 2.0

March 23, 2006; 04:07 AM

CONCORD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 2006--Exadel, Inc., a leading provider of software, services, and support that enable companies to create mission-critical business applications based on open source and Java(TM) technologies, today announced general availability of Exadel Visual Component Platform 1.0, a rich component framework for the development of business applications based on JavaServer Faces (JSF).

Offering unique and unmatched AJAX support, Exadel Visual Component Platform 1.0 provides a high level of abstraction for developing component-based rich Web applications while hiding the complexities of underlying technologies. Its revolutionary design represents the beginning of an industry paradigm shift in development; from hand-crafted development to an industrial way of composing applications from components.

"JSF, a Web component framework, is the only standard Java Web framework," said Richard Monson-Haefel, senior analyst for Burton Group. "AJAX, which makes Web sites more responsive, is enjoying an avalanche of grass roots support because of its portability and seamless integration with HTML. Together, JSF and AJAX offer the benefits of standardization with a rich internet experience; a combination that will be attractive to many organizations."

A complete out-of-the-box solution that boasts a robust visual library of AJAX components, Exadel Visual Component Platform 1.0 extends JSF development environments by offering three key elements: Components, which help companies dramatically improve their time to market and quality to market; AJAX-enabled components, which offer the ability to provide a rich user experience based on Web 2.0; and Skin-enabled components, which provide a highly customizable visual environment for building Web applications. Developers can immediately save time in taking advantage of these features to create Web applications faster and more reliably while easily being able to provide a greatly improved user experience.

    Major features of Exadel Visual Component Platform 1.0 include:

-- Access to the most used User Interface components

-- Easy customization of the look and feel of the User Interface

-- Themes

-- Skins

-- Unmatched AJAX support:

-- JSF Components with built-in AJAX support

-- Easy way to add AJAX capability to existing JSF components

-- Add AJAX capability without writing any JavaScript code

-- Client-side debug panel for tracking AJAX requests

-- Full support for JSF lifecycle using AJAX

-- Advanced 3-D User Interface

-- Easy-to-add drag-and-drop functionality for Web applications

-- "Skinning" of different look-and-feel without replacing the
standard components

"Development teams and business application owners around the world today are under tremendous pressure to provide a rich, highly-functional user experience," said Fima Katz, founder and CEO, Exadel. "Exadel Visual Component Platform 1.0 provides an environment for delivering a significantly improved user experience (Web 2.0) while significantly reducing complexity and development time in building a User Interface."
