SmartClient brings the productivity and performance of desktop applications to standard web browsers. It minimizes development time and cost, increases end-user productivity, and improves total system efficiency and maintenance.
Isomorphic has just announced pricing for the enterprise AJAX space, the SmartClient AJAX platform, the same platform consistently chosen by major ISVs such as Informatica and Wily/CA, is now available for enterprise use for $1195/developer.
“With over 100 documented components and over 2000 documented APIs, SmartClient offers the complete set of GUI components, databinding systems and extension points you need to create full featured, robust AJAX applications.
Throwing together components from multiple sources creates a mish-mash of different programming paradigms, inconsistent look and feel, bizarre bugs and dependencies on multiple parties. SmartClient offers a single complete, consistent, extensible, skinnable system.
Flexible architecture: SmartClient supports modern service-oriented architectures with declarative binding to WSDL and REST web services. SmartClient's model-driven components understand metadata formats such as XML Schema, allowing a rich shared client-server data model.
SmartClient also supports incremental upgrade of existing web applications, by allowing rich components to be embedded directly within plain HTML layouts, and allowing your existing HTML to be embedded within SmartClient components. Capture key AJAX benefits without disrupting your application or your schedule.
Cross-browser, Cross-platform: Many AJAX frameworks claim support for any browser where some functionality works. All of SmartClient's functionality works as documented on all supported browsers.
Cross-browser support that extends only to built-in functionality still leaves you needing AJAX expertise for the customizations typical of a real application. SmartClient's cross-platform support includes the ability to customize and extend components, and create entirely new components, without writing browser-specific code, without doing cross-browser testing, and without experience in the details of AJAX.”
