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 Success with the Japanese Press0

Our press conference in Tokyo with NEOJAPAN generated some great press. The two companies announced that NEOJAPAN joined the Bindows Global Partnership Program and that they will gradually revamp their groupware solution called desknet’s. Here’s a nice screenshot of desknet’s using Bindows.

So far, the news has appeared in the morning edition of FujiSankeiBusiness - one of the major Japanese business newspapers as well as the following:
ITpro NIKKEI SolusionBusiness
ITpro NIKKEI Computer
@IT NIKKEI Personal computer
Impress Enterprise Watch

Our sources at NEOJAPAN told us that pictures of Yoram appear in many of the print editions of these online articles and that his smiling face was very charming :)

Bindows Article on Ajax in Byte Magazine0

We’re proud to announce that Byte Magazine has published an article by Yoram Meriaz (CEO at MB Technologies - maker of Bindows.) The article is called Back to the Future with AJAX.

The idea behind the article is that we started with mainframes and dumb terminals, then we migrated to clients and servers and now with the rise of AJAX we’re headed back (yet forward) to centralized delivery of services with sophisticated user interfaces.

The article also includes a useful list of the advantages of AJAX and tackles the question as to whether or not AJAX is ready for the enterprise.

What do you think? Is the client/server era coming to an end?

Please check out Back to the Future with AJAX and feel free to post your comments on our blog. Thanks!

Thank You Dion!!!0

We’d like to thank Dion for the amazing writeup he gave Bindows at Web 2.0 Journal today. We really appreciate the time he took to learn about the product and speak with Yoram Meriaz, CEO at Bindows. Some of our favorite quotes from the article:

“The detail and complexity of the user experiences that Bindows creates is amazing, all without sacrjficing clarity of the interface.”

“They offer one of the slickest products so far.”

“If you’re looking to do Enterprise Web 2.0, Bindows is tough to beat and here today…”

“I don’t often devote full blog posts to a single product but Bindows is worth it and I’m seriously considering it for my own Ajax software development work.”

And of course, we didn’t mind the following quote, “I do expect Bindows will be acquired soon enough, with my best guess being Google given that Yahoo now has an impressive new AJAX library of its very own.”

Once again, Thanks Dion!!!!
