Isomorphic Announces Enterprise Edition of SmartGWT for Java Developers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/07/09 -- Isomorphic Software announced the release of SmartGWT Enterprise Edition, a commercial version of SmartGWT, which enables rapid development of cutting-edge Ajax RIAs in 100% Java, using standard tools such as Eclipse and a familiar programming model similar to Java Swing.

"To compete in today's economy, enterprises must adopt RIA technology, but it's difficult to hire people with the right skills and re-training existing staff is slow and expensive," said Charles Kendrick, CTO and co-founder of Isomorphic Software. "SmartGWT Enterprise Edition provides development teams with access to the most sophisticated RIA technology available, while using existing skills and existing tools. No other RIA solution can offer such immediate, clear ROI."

Developers can find a more detailed description of SmartGWT Enterprise Edition and the example showcase here. But in short, it offers all the functionality of SmartGWT (which has more than 100,000 downloads to date) with the following major additions:

--  data binding wizards for common data providers such as Hibernate/JPA,
    SQL databases, and WSDL web services
--  greatly accelerated integration with existing Java business logic and
    custom data tiers
--  a drag-and-drop, visual design environment that can be customized and
    centrally deployed for collaborative development
--  a classic commercial software license model (in lieu of LGPL) to meet
    the requirements of most legal departments

SmartGWT Enterprise Edition is based on the SmartClient Ajax RIA Platform, which, over the past eight years, has powered some of the most sophisticated enterprise RIAs ever created. Today, enterprises across the globe use SmartClient as their standard presentation technology in a broad variety of industries including financial services, defense, insurance, and life sciences.

"While most Ajax frameworks focus primarily on presentation and displaying mostly read-only data, either local or via XML / JSON, SmartClient was built with server-side integration in mind," said Sanjiv Jivan, J2EE programmer and author of SmartGWT. "Most enterprise applications are not just about data presentation, but about being able to propagate data changes made by the user to the back end. While it's tempting to use various libraries that feature an interesting widget, it's not until you actually try to use your application that you encounter real-world problems. And that's precisely when developers realize the true value of SmartClient."

Pricing and Availability

SmartGWT Enterprise Edition is now available by contacting Isomorphic Sales at [email protected]. Pricing starts at $745 per developer. Enterprise-level licenses including indemnity and SLA-backed production support are also available.
