Intersoft Solutions Releases WebUI Studio 2009
Intersoft Solutions announced the official release of WebUI Studio 2009, a presentation layer toolkit for Microsoft ASP.NET and Microsoft Silverlight application development. This release delivers nine new products and includes many new features designed to address demanding web application requirements, accelerate the development cycle, and improve productivity for developers and end users.
Two notable features in the product are ClientBinding and SmartBatchUpdate. According to Intersoft, ClientBinding slashes the client footprint by over 90 percent and allows data easy access to web services with just one line of markup. ClientBinding supports a variety of data providers, including Web Services, WCF Services, Microsoft ADO.NET Data Services, and cloud computing services such as Windows Azure and also fully supports all existing WebGrid features.
SmartBatchUpdate facilitates data editing by eliminating the many client server update round trips required for each edit. It intelligently manages editing information on the client side and later submits it to the server in a single AJAX request, thereby maximizing client resources while enhancing the editing experience through increased performance.
The WebUI Studio 2009 release also includes Presenter, a suite of data visualization components for Silverlight that provides design-time support for Microsoft Expression Blend 2 and Visual Studio 2008, and WebTextEditor, a business-oriented text editor to help developers build content management systems.
"We took web development an evolutionary leap forward," said Jimmy Petrus, Intersoft's CEO. "WebUI Studio 2009 delivers cloud computing support, truly impressive client-binding technology, an innovative text editing suite, breakthrough data presenters for Silverlight, and much more making web development easier and faster than ever, while adding unprecedented value to rich Internet applications (RIAs)."
Three editions of WebUI Studio 2009 are available: Premier edition (starts at $1,599), ASP.NET edition (starts at $1,299), and Silverlight edition (starts at $799). For more information, go to http://www.intersoftpt.com/WebUIStudio/; to purchase the product, go to http://www.intersoftpt.com/store/.
