In an era of excessive web applications, it is important for companies to establish themselves apart from their competitors in order to stand out in the market. In Austria, international mobile service provider Dimoco adopted UI framework ZK as a base over GWT for developing their administration GUIs effectively setting the company apart from their competitors with behind-the-scenes Ajax technologies, pure Java development, server-centric architecture offering high levels of productivity and security and eye-catching interfaces able to configure or generate statistics for business customers for monitoring SMS traffic, mobile data payment and campaign data.

As Dimoco has positioned themselves as a flexible and innovative company, it was of extreme importance to create a GUI that is good looking yet prominent enough to distinguish themselves from competitors which makes it the greatest challenge of the project. The criteria for the new web framework was one with the right balance between simplicity in developing such that JavaScript and HTML coding are reduced to an absolute minimum, potential of customizing “everything” down to the last detail whilst maintaining high performance and high security level.

During the evaluation process, the team first considered Richfaces, ICEfaces and JSF but the possibility was soon deterred by the complexity and configuration required for the frameworks. Next, GWT came into the picture but was overturned when the team discovered ZK and was fascinated by the beauty of it. The main advantage of ZK is in its possibility to describe a GUI in XML while all XML elements are available in Java code and in general requires less lines of code to achieve for the same functionality and effect for ZK than for GWT. Adding to the basket, the evaluation team was also impressed by ZK’s Demo site where ZK components can be coded and tested on the fly.

“The simplicity to add UI components programmatically and the handsomeness of the components as a whole convinced the evaluation team,” says one of the evaluators from Dimoco.
