Backbase Unveils its Strategy on Rich Internet Application Software: “New Generation Web Applications”

Share Article

Backbase has unveiled its strategy for developing Rich Internet Applications in a totally new manner, yet based entirely on current web and internet standards (W3C).

Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) utilize client-side resources to provide the user with responsive and application-like behavior in the web browser. Until recently, developing RIAs required significant bandwidth capacity and installation of proprietary plug-ins.

Backbase is the first-to-market company offering RIA development software that is based entirely on web and internet standards and that does not require users to install plug-ins.

The Backbase technology embraces and extends web standards like XHTML, CSS, JavaScript and XML. Additionally it increases developer productivity as developers can leverage their current skills to create RIAs with Backbase technology.

The Backbase Rich Internet Application software has the following differentiators:

• Full commitment to web and internet standards (XHML, CSS, JS, XML, DOM);

• Cross-browser compatibility which creates a consistent user experience;

• No plug-ins required for users/visitors of the application or website;

• Use of a descriptive language for defining the Graphical User Interface;

• Complete environment for developing a browser-based presentation-tier.

Editions are available for JAVA and .NET.

Backbase recently launched their new corporate web site, which showcases the capabilities of Rich Internet Applications via the site itself and a collection of demos.

More detailed information on Backbase RIA vision can be found in a whitepaper that is available for download: (Title: Backbase: “Ajax and Beyond”).
