ClearNova Brings Client/Server Advantages to Web Apps

Leverages AJAX to Revolutionize Web Development and User Experience

ClearNova has announced the release of ThinkCAP JX -- a rapid application development platform for building rich Internet applications that combines the power of AJAX, J2EE and open source to help organizations and their developers quickly and cost-effectively build intuitive and responsive Web-based applications while leveraging skills and infrastructure already in place.

By providing an intuitive visual design environment along with leading-edge AJAX functionality, ThinkCAP JX gives Java experts and non-experts alike an efficient, intuitive means of adding the power of AJAX to new and existing Web-based business applications.

"Rich Internet applications have been growing in importance for the last few years. Technologies such as AJAX are making it easier for developers and users to respectively build anD enjoy a more rich experience," said Daryl Plummer, Gartner Research.

ClearNova Vice President/Strategy Steve Benfield recently appeared on a live SYS-CON webcast, in which he explained how companies can benefit from the AJAX approach. The archived webcast can be found here.

"AJAX provides developers the ability to build much richer, more robust and faster-performing Web applications, making it a true and credible alternative to traditional client/server-based applications for businesses," said Byron Matheson, CEO of ClearNova. "But AJAX development is hard if you don't have the right tools-just like client/server and Windows programming is impossible without them. The beauty of ThinkCAP JX is that it uses the power of the J2EE server along with the browser to dramatically simplify AJAX development. We do the heavy rocket science so that our customers don't have to."

"We chose ThinkCAP because it provides a well thought out way of building Web applications and includes AJAX support. Our initial experience with the product is bearing this out-we're very excited," said Caleb Mitsvotai, executive director of development with Panda Restaurant Group, the largest Chinese food service provider in North America with more than 700 restaurant  locations, and an early ThinkCAP JX customer.
