Well - you talked and we listened!

The new themes are here - cool new looks (that you can freely modify), including full support for rounded corners.

Three New Products from the Bindows Folks - InfoWorld Review0

Read the excellent review in InfoWorld by Martin Heller (Strategic Developer).
InfoWorld Review.

The review covers our release of three new products: Bindows gauges library toolkit, BindowsFaces, and the Bindows 4.0 Beta.

Regarding Bindows FREE gauges library toolkit - InfoWorld appreciates the facts that the toolkit is completely free, and comes with a gauge wizard and a free subset of the Bindows Ajax library. The gauges are done with vector graphics and are fast enough to be used for soft real-time displays. Try it out online yourself.

The BindowsFaces library, as you might guess from the name, brings Bindows-based Ajax capabilities to Java through JSF. It’s for Java Faces programmers who’d prefer not to get their hands dirty with JavaScript or go through a compilation step. Martin quotes us “BindowsFaces is better than GWT or Oracle ADF.” Obviously, we are biased :)

Moving on to Bindows 4.0 beta “probably makes Bindows the most advanced professional Ajax framework in the market,” according to the Meriazes. One of primary design goal of Bindows 4.0 is to add the “ability to define a fully working application without writing a single line of JavaScript.” To join the 4.0 beta program, contact

Thanks Martin for a great review!

Bindows 4.0 (beta)0

This version introduces several several new concepts along with hundreds of improvements and bug fixes. Some of the main features in this version are:

* Actions - managed asynchronous execution threads
* Name Scopes - makes creating reusable components a breeze
* ADF XML - Custom classes can be defined in pure ADF XML, both UI and simple business logic.

Read all about it:


BindowsFaces is a components library that enables programmers create powerful Ajax web applications using Java - through JSF.

Use BindowsFaces if you are:
* Developers creating enterprise strength web applications.
* Java developers that do not want to engage in JavaScript “hacking”.
* Bindows programmers that want to expand into and leverage JSF technologies.

Why use BindowsFaces
* Most JSF based frameworks in the market provide the client side components as an afterthought - their client side is quite weak.

* BindowsFaces provides Java developers with a market leading client-side component model, built from the ground up with TRUE object-oriented Ajax.

* Bindows is famous for being full, rich and mature (probably the richest Ajax framework). Bindows also provides the best in market support for developing Section-508 accessible web applications.


1. BindowsFaces shields the developer from the complexities of JavaScipt cross-browser programming.

2. BindowsFaces enables you to create full fledged Bindows applications using only JSF.

3. The Bindows legacy provides you with access to the most robust, mature and rich Ajax components (the richest components library) on the market.

4. You (the developer) have full control of how to distribute execution loads between the client and the server. Let the client do 99% of the work - drastically reduce server load and bandwidth utilization.

5. Creation of the client application can be fully automated by the use of XML.

6. Utilize industry standard Java development tools featuring code completion, unit testing etc.

7. The underlying Ajax library is object oriented - very similar to Java and Swing which should make the transition swift and painless for a large portion of the developer community around the world.

8. Cross-browser compatibility and zero-foorprint.

9. Enables an application flow on the client side with actions and events. No need to send an entire HTML page just to change one pice of data.

10. We use true Ajax! No hidden frames…

* To run the BindowsFaces you need Bindows 4.0 (beta).
* The BindowsFaces package is provided FREE of charge, without any warranty and without any commitment for support.
