Telerik, a company known for its comprehensive solutions for Microsoft .NET developers, has expanded its reach with the announcement of its recently released Kendo UI framework. The new framework supplies software developers with a feature-rich solution that gives them the power to build sites and applications using HTML5 and JavaScript. Besides facilitating the developer adoption of both HTML5 and JavaScript, Kendo UI allows Telerik to offer a wider variety of products that extends beyond solely Microsoft .NET.

Todd Anglin, the executive vice president Telerik’s Kendo UI group, commented on the appeal of the new framework: “Building applications and sites today with HTML5 and JavaScript is an exercise in self-assembling an array of libraries and toolsets to compose a platform that has all of the necessary components for development.  This approach is acceptable for hobby projects, but it is fraught with support and licensing risks, it is difficult to maintain and upgrade, it is difficult to learn, and it wastes valuable development time. Kendo UI solves this problem by providing a unified framework with all of the necessary components for building HTML5 and JavaScript apps and sites.”

Based on the jQuery JavaScript library, Kendo UI is ideal for building front-end web, mobile, and data visualization applications for various reasons.  It employs the most up to date CSS3, HTML5, and JavaScript web standards, plus it supports all major browsers that currently populate the market.  Its feature set can be broken down into three main sectors or products: Kendo UI Web, Kendo UI Mobile CTP, and Kendo UI DataViz.

Kendo UI Web consists of one of the fastest JavaScript templating engines around.  It comes equipped with touch-enabled drag and drop functionality, a host of vital framework components, and over a dozen HTML5 JavaScript UI widgets.  Kendo UI Mobile CTP is still in its preview phase but offers a glimpse into various Kendo UI widgets designed to help with the process of mobile app development with HTML5.  Finally, Kendo UI DataViz includes animated charts and other HTML5-driven data visualization widgets.

Telerik is delivering Kendo UI under an open source GPLv3 license and a  commercial license.  The open source license offers access to the full source code and major updates without support.  Each commercial license includes Kendo UI Web, Kendo UI DataViz, professional support, and access to major and minor updates plus weekly builds for one year for $399.  Kendo UI Mobile will become part of the commercial package during the first quarter of 2012.  A free trial is also available for evaluation purposes only.  More information is available at the official Kendo UI website, http://www.kendoui.com.

RemObjects Software Adds JavaScript Support to its Data Abstract and RemObjects SDK Offerings

RemObjects Software, a solutions provider for software developers, recently enhanced its product lineup with the addition of new releases of its Data Abstract and RemObjects SDK products that have been enhanced to now offer native JavaScript library support.  The new releases back RemObjects Software’s philosophy of offering the best possible solution for each platform it supports, such as Apple Xcode, Embarcadero Delphi, JavaScript and Java, and Microsoft .NET, instead of producing an all-in-one solution that employs a lowest common denominator mentality.

RemObjects’ top product, Data Abstract, is considered to be one of the world’s top cross platform multi-tier database application development frameworks.  It previously gave developers the power to create robust and scalable enterprise database solutions for the Apple Xcode, Embarcadero Delphi, and Microsoft .NET platforms, and now adds JavaScript as its fourth supported platform.  With JavaScript now in the mix, developers can make use of widely used technologies like HTML and AJAX to build data driven web applications that are browser-based. 

Data Abstract for JavaScript is written completely in JavaScript and offers interoperability with jQuery, extJS, and similar technologies while remaining user-friendly.  RemObjects does not deliver the JavaScript version of Data Abstract as a standalone product.  Instead, it comes packaged with the updated versions of Relativity Server and, Data Abstract for Delphi, and Data Abstract for .NET.  Valeriy Goloshchapov, RemObjects’ team lead for JavaScript technologies, commented on Data Abstract for JavaScript in the official press release.  He said, “With the native client library for JavaScript, the Data Abstract product family gains an important new member, making it now easier than ever to build rich web clients that can directly retrieve and update data from the middle tier.”

The aforementioned RemObjects SDK completes the company’s JavaScript-related enhancements to its product line and is described as “the lower-level communication framework that forms the foundation of Data Abstract.”  Both Data Abstract for JavaScript and the new RemObjects SDK are available for purchase directly from the RemObjects Software website, www.remobjects.com.  The company is also offering both as part of a free 30-day trial.
