Servoy Increases its AJAX Lead Over Adobe's AIR

With most leading AJAX frameworks, there are many security concerns today as they run client-side. In products based on Backbase and Tibco, for example, security issues can only be addressed by writing business rules twice - once for live execution in the client and once for server-side validation. Servoy's AJAX implementation is secure, faster and lighter right out of the box. All logic runs server-side where the browser maintains an asynchronous connection with the server to post user events; and to receive and process DOM changes.

There was only one catch – he had to find a tool that was fast. Traditional Java programming was going to take waaaay too long to convert the internal custom programs that had been written in an old 4GL. But the boss still wanted the excellent user interfaces that he was used to – because our hero was good on the Mac and could make the screens look “pretty.” If possible – the boss wanted the impossible – make the application run on a desktop AND over the Web – “just in case.” Here’s the story of our intrepid hero and how he searched, and found, a way to meet all the &ldq...
