BindowsFaces is a components library that enables you to create powerful Ajax web applications with a Windows look-and-feel - using Java through JSF.
Run your Java-based applications, inside a browser (pure Ajax), with a Windows look-and-feel!
BindowsFaces™ - Now supporting Comet
The latest version of BindowsFaces now supports Comet, using GlassFish implementation.
Who should consider using BindowsFaces?
- Developers creating enterprise strength web applications.
- Bindows programmers that want to expand into and leverage JSF technologies.
Why use BindowsFaces
Most JSF based frameworks in the market provide the client side components as an afterthought - their client side is quite weak.
BindowsFaces provides Java developers with a market leading client-side component model, built from the ground up with TRUE object-oriented Ajax.
Bindows is famous for being full, rich and mature (probably the richest Ajax framework). Bindows also provides the best in market support for developing Section-508 accessible web applications.
- BindowsFaces enables you to create full fledged Bindows applications using only JSF.
- The Bindows legacy provides you with access to the most robust, mature and rich Ajax components (the richest components library) on the market.
- You (the developer) have full control of how to distribute execution loads between the client and the server. Let the client do 99% of the work - drastically reduce server load and bandwidth utilization.
- Creation of the client application can be fully automated by the use of XML.
- Utilize industry standard Java development tools featuring code completion, unit testing etc.
- The underlying Ajax library is object oriented - very similar to Java and Swing which should make the transition swift and painless for a large portion of the developer community around the world.
- Cross-browser compatibility and zero-footprint.
- Enables an application flow on the client side with actions and events. No need to send an entire HTML page just to change one pice of data.
- We use true Ajax! No hidden frames...
