Nexaweb Technologies Inc., a provider of a standards-based platform for building and deploying Enterprise Web 2.0 applications over the web, has announced the Nexaweb Starter Kit to provide enterprise and public sector organizations a development and deployment framework for composite and 'mashup' Ajax and Java applications. Available for $17,500, the Nexaweb Starter Kit includes the complete Nexaweb Platform and Nexaweb Studio, its Eclipse-based Ajax and Java IDE. The Starter Kit includes one 100-seat project server license, three Nexaweb Studio IDE licenses, and a full-day of remote consulting services. An unlimited deployment option is also available using Apache XAP, an open source declarative Ajax rich internet application framework. Customers can scale beyond the Nexaweb Starter Kit as they add applications and users.
As part of the Nexaweb Starter Kit, customers receive Nexaweb's Universal Client Framework, a UI XML rendering engine to offer enterprises the ability to deploy their applications using an Ajax-, Java-, or desktop- client based on specific application profiles and end-user requirements. Nexaweb Ajax and Java clients download automatically (in seconds) to a standard web browser, and intelligently cache data and program components on-demand. With Nexaweb UCF, organizations can deploy applications in any browser, anytime, over any network using Ajax or Java. Customers can also fully utilize Nexaweb's Internet Messaging Bus and Enterprise Data Services as part of the Starter Kit.
