Free Eclipse Plug-in for Rich Internet Application Development

Free Eclipse Plug-in for Rich Internet Application Development
Canoo has released a new plug-in for Eclipse 3.0 that simplifies Rich Internet Application (RIA) development with the UltraLightClient (ULC) Java library. The new plug-in provides a tight ULC integration into the Eclipse IDE, enabling developers to deliver pure Java-based RIAs with unprecedented efficiency.

Building Rich Internet Applications in Java

UltraLightClient is a library to build Rich Internet Applications (RIA) in Java. Offering a server-side programming and execution model, it is the ideal complement for the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP). With this standard Java library, developers will be very effective in providing rich, responsive graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for enterprise web applications within J2EE and J2SE infrastructures. UltraLightClient builds on available developer know-how by following the Swing API, yet shields the developer from the complexities of client/server code distribution by taking care of the code split and by optimizing communication. Application releases are deployed on the server only. The user interface is handled by an application-independent Java presentation engine distributed as an applet to a browser, to Eclipse RCP, or via Java Web Start.
