Enterprise Ajax 4 facilitates smart code reuse practices with an architecture based on reusable object oriented patterns and multiple inheritance support, Pleiter explained, before situating the annoucnement in the overall context of the industry as follows:
"The new Backbase 4 architecture brings structure, performance and productivity to client-side AJAX logic, in the same way as Application Servers have brought structure and productivity to Java application development in the late 1990s. Today, we all use application servers to run our application logic. We will see a similar architecture emerging for client-side Ajax logic."
Backbase studied carefully how application servers addressed many of the issues related to servicing applications from a server and how they successfully included many of the fundamental services an application required, Pleiter explained. "In a very similar way, we designed our new framework to address issues related to AJAX applications running in a browser and included many of the fundamental services required within our framework," he said.
Backbase Enterprise Ajax 4 offers all the AJAX “plumbing” a developer needs right out of the box. The runtime inherently supports the leading browsers including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Firefox, Netscape, Camino, Safari, and Opera.
“The new support for third-party components is a significant move toward making the different AJAX technologies work together” Said Gerbert Kaandorp, CTO of Backbase. “The new framework operates as a truly open platform, allowing developers to enrich their applications with the Ajax widgets and components of their choice”. In addition, the Backbase framework includes the industry largest library of widgets and functions - over 250 - with source code. The framework includes the ability to customize, extend components, and create entirely new components without any AJAX experience requirements."
With Enterprise Ajax 4, Kaandorp explained, Backbase demonstrates its support for the new W3C standards - including the WCAG Accessibility standard, and Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act.
Backbase Enterprise Ajax 4 is available today and comes in three editions: a free Community Edition for development and deployment up to one server and 2CPUs; a Client Edition and a JSF Edition. People and businesses requiring additional enterprise functionality, more CPUs, support services, maintenance, and other services can buy a commercial license on a subscription basis starting at $2,500 per year for 2 developers and 2 CPUs.
In addition to its Enterprise Ajax Framework, Backbase offers Ajax 360, a full solution offering a complete suite of services for the Enterprise Ajax framework.
The world’s leading Rich Internet Applications & Web 2.0 event is expected to attract more than 1,000 i-technology developers. AJAXWorld grew from a single track, one-day seminar, less than a year ago, into a four-day international conference & expo with more than 150 sessions delivered in ten simultaneous tracks, by more than 150 faculty members.
Track 01: Rich Internet Applications in Action
Track 02: Web 2.0 / Enterprise Mashups
Track 03: Enterprise AJAX
Track 04: RIA Frameworks & Toolkits
Track 05: Security & Performance
Track 06: Hot Topics
Track 07: iPhone AJAX Applications
Track 08: Advanced AJAX
Track 09: Platform Choices / Real-World AJAX
Track 10: OpenLaszlo Diamond Track
The conference now includes the world famous AJAXWorld University's AJAX Developer Bootcamp, OpenLaszlo Track and Adobe Flex Developer Bootcamp. This Santa Clara AJAXWorld Expo Floor displays bleeding edge RIA technologies from the leading AJAX vendors.

Very interesting but seems to be a little behind. The market offers alternatives that got some traction and seems to be catching fine. One of them for example is Visual Webgui that is a standard no plug-in browser AJAX. Visual Webgui that is an open source framework for IT types AJAX GUIs. It replaces the obsolete paradigms of ASP.NET which were designed for developing sites, with WinForms methodologies, which were designed for developing applications. Thus enabling designer that was designed for application. This provides the developer with an extremely efficient way to design interfaces using drag and drop instead of hand coding HTML. VWG doesn’t expose logic, data or open services on client requests and therefore is not as vulnerable as common AJAX solution. Worth a look –www.visualwebgui.com
