Innoopract Introduces First Eclipse-Based AJAX Platform

Eclipse Expands With features Of Web 2.0, Says CEO Krause

Innoopract has introduced RAP with the intention of converging the benefits of Eclipse, RCP and Ajax for the development of dynamic, next-generation web applications while also reducing the cost of development. Developers familiar with Eclipse will feel at home with RAP development and will be able to quickly and effectively extend RCP applications to the Web or create new applications from scratch. This can be done efficiently without needing to code HTML or JavaScript since these technologies are encapsulated into the Widget Toolkit.

In addition, compatibility issues resulting from multiple browsers are solved through the rendering kits which automatically adapt applications to the characteristics of the respective browser. RAP has been proposed to the Eclipse Foundation as an Open Source Project. Assuming it is approved, the first release is planned in the summer 2006. Individuals and companies interested in this project are cordially invited to actively participate.
