Helmi Technologies Joins Open Source Eclipse Foundation

October 31, 2006; 03:40 AM
Helmi Technologies, Inc., provider of the Open Source RIA Platform, announced it has joined forces with the Eclipse Foundation, an open source development community, as an Add- In Provider.

Helmi enterprise and developer customers can now rest assured that integrating Helmi's Ajax-based Platform leverages existing skills and the familiar Eclipse development environment. Using the Eclipse environment and Helmi's Platform allows customers to rapidly create browser-independent, high- impact web applications, while cutting development time by over 50 percent.

"Companies such as Helmi play a vital role in the Eclipse Foundation," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director at Eclipse Foundation. "Helmi's technology and source code is now available to the Eclipse community. Ajax solutions are particularly in high demand and Helmi is offering Eclipse users an Ajax-based solution to rapidly and cost-effectively create browser- independent AJAX rich Internet applications."

The Helmi Open Source RIA Platform delivers on the promise of Web 2.0. For the first time, client- and server-side engineers can create high performance applications because they can use the same components and communicate effectively through an object-oriented framework.

"We are excited to be joining the Eclipse Foundation," said Jorden Woods, CEO of Helmi Technologies in the U.S. "Our goal when developing our open source product was to allow companies to leverage their development team's knowledge base and shorten the learning curve to maximize productivity. We share the same vision as the Eclipse Foundation which is to enable developers to easily create derivative works from our Platform in an open source environment."

The Helmi Platform is available for download at http://public.helmitechnologies.com .

    Helmi Open Source RIA Platform v2.0:

    -- Client Framework -- Built by world-class GUI developers, the Client
       Framework is a 100% browser-based client platform for RIA development
       that does not require client-side installation. It simplifies designing
       sophisticated applications, significantly improves RIA usability and
       reduces HTML overhead.

    -- Virtual Browser -- Enables seamless cross-browser application
       operations and offers extensive control over browser features.
       Applications can be developed independent of the browser and UI
       components can be reused across many platforms and devices.

    -- Integrated Development Environment (IDE) -- Allows UI designers and
       server developers to work independently yet collaboratively in a
       shared, object-oriented environment. Server developers can create and
       integrate RIAs within the J2EE server development paradigm, while UI
       designers can work in visual mode through layout and revision cycles,
       continuously previewing application look and feel without needing to
       touch Java code.

    -- J2EE-based AJAX Server Connect -- Handles transfer and insertion of
       data into Helmi's AJAX client application, simplifying the process of
       moving data from server to client.
