The Eiffel Web Framework (EWF) for EiffelStudio provides an easy-to-use framework to build portable web server applications

I finished porting a large application to EWF. Everything basically ran after a successful compile! Hurray Eiffel!!

Web development has been in the crosshairs of Eiffel Software ever since the EiffelWeb library in 1993, one of the first Web development tools.

Things have changed a lot since then; the Eiffel Web Framework (EWF) provides a modern, easy-to-use framework, relying on the power of EiffelStudio, for building simple or complex web server applications, portable on various connector and platforms. EiffelWeb brings the power of Eiffel's object-oriented mechanism, Design by Contract technology and advanced EiffelStudio tools to Web site development.

"It's exciting for me" says Jocelyn Fiat, senior engineer at Eiffel Software in charge of the project, "to head the Eiffel Web Framework open-source community effort but what I enjoy the most is receiving positive feedback from our users such as this one. I finished porting a large application to EWF. Everything basically ran after a successful compile! Hurray Eiffel!!"

The newest version of the Eiffel Web Framework for EiffelStudio is available for download on the company website.

EiffelStudio is based on the Eiffel programming language, the most extensive implementation of O-O concepts, standardized through ECMA and the International Standards Organization. Its core concepts, native only to Eiffel, such as Design by Contractâ„¢, multiple inheritance, genericity, conversions, agents, void safety allow developers to write high quality applications that are easy to maintain. EiffelStudio, which received the prestigious ACM Software Systems Award, is used by developers and design-team leaders in challenging enterprise environments in the financial, insurance, manufacturing, health, and government sectors.
