To develop rich internet and mobile applications
Uniface, the application development division of Compuware, has released Uniface 9.4, enabling a very short time to market for rich internet and mobile applications. It is the first step towards application development for and in the Cloud.
The company claims that the new version of Uniface platform allows existing development teams to build Web 2.0 applications at a higher level of abstraction, while requiring only one-half to one-eighth the lines of code needed by equivalent Java or .NET implementations.
In addition, Uniface 9.4 also provides support for multi-channel deployment (including a range of mobile devices), as well as support for mash-ups, SOA and business process orchestration.
With Uniface 9.4, the rich internet application approach is fully integrated using the Dojo toolkit to deliver AJAX out-of-the-box, the company said.
Aad Schetsen, vice president at Compuware Uniface, said: “The whole Uniface world is very excited about Uniface 9.4. We’ve had the most successful beta program in the history of the product, the IT analysts are enthusiastic about this Uniface release and its future direction, and Uniface customers worldwide are already enhancing and delivering business critical Web 2.0 applications with Uniface 9.4.”
