Laszlo Systems and IBM Team to Contribute Open Source Code Aimed at Advancing Rich Internet Applications

Source: Yahoo!


Laszlo Systems, developer of the OpenLaszlo(TM) platform and provider of rich Internet applications (RIAs) and services, today announced that the company has teamed with IBM to propose the "IDE for Laszlo" integrated development environment (IDE) project at Eclipse. This joint initiative is designed to further accelerate the development and deployment of OpenLaszlo applications and to support the Eclipse Foundation, the open source community committed to the implementation of a universal development platform.

The OpenLaszlo platform is an open source, XML-native platform for developing RIAs that run in any modern Web browser. Since Laszlo Systems announced its open source status last October, OpenLaszlo has been downloaded more than 60,000 times and is being deployed in applications serving millions of users.

IBM intends to contribute the "IDE for Laszlo," which will allow developers to build RIAs, more quickly and easily, using Eclipse. IBM initially launched the "IDE for Laszlo" last year on IBM's emerging technology Web site, alphaWorks. Since then, the "IDE for Laszlo" has been downloaded more than 13,000 times and continues to be a top rated alphaWorks download.
