Backbase Becomes "Gold Sponsor" of AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East
Pioneer in Enterprise AJAX software joins the sponsor roster

SYS-CON Events announced today that Backbase has been named a "Gold Sponsor" of AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East, to be held in New York City on March 19-21, 2007.

With enterprise clients like Sony, Heineken, Motorola, TNT, Canon, ABN-AMRO, The Home Depot, NYU Medical Center, Backbase is a pioneer in Enterprise AJAX software.

Backbase Enterprise AJAX software radically improves the usability and effectiveness of online applications, and increases the productivity of the developers who are creating Rich Internet Applications (RIAs). Enterprises use the software to improve the user interface of their existing applications (Application Modernization), or to improve the ROI of Online Self-Service platforms.

The Backbase Presentation Client (BPC) is an AJAX engine based entirely on AJAX technology, and differentiates itself via a generic User Interface declaration language (BXML). BXML is a XML application that also includes many XSLT and XPath functions. BXML is interpreted by the AJAX engine, and translated to native DOM commands in the browser. The Backbase AJAX Engine is developed in JavaScript, and it works in Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Firefox and soon also in Opera and Safari. It does not require any type of plug-in, which differentiates Backbase from other RIA vendors.

Backbase software can be used to build more interactive websites and better user interfaces, web interfaces, web GUIs or web-based replacements for desktop rich clients. From a usability perspective Backbase has a noticable impact: people involved in Interaction Design and User Interface Design suddenly have much more possibilities than with regular websites. The software contains GUI builder functionality that speeds up GUI development significantly and developers are not confronted with the details of JavaScript, XML and XMLHttpRequest, but can just add extra tags to their HTML pages.

Backbase rich clients can be easily combined with Java & J2EE, .NET & ASP.NET, XML, XSLT and XPath. The .NET Server Edition offers drag-and-drop RIA development with Visual Studio.NET. Plug-ins for Eclipse and DreamWeaver are also available. The XML Server Edition can be installed on both Java platforms and on Microsoft Windows (Native .NET Application).

The Backbase Enterprise AJAX framework comes in 3 Editions optimized for different application platforms:

  • AJAX Struts Edition: for Java developers who want to Ajaxify existing Struts applications, by quickly adding AJAX widgets to the existing presentation tier.
  • AJAX JSF Edition: for Java developers who want to leverage the JavaServer Faces (JSF) standard, by creating a next generation rich component-based AJAX presentation tier.
  • AJAX Client Edition: for cross-platform developers who want to leverage a powerful client-side AJAX architecture that works with any existing back-end technology.
