ZK is a highly productive open source Java framework for building amazing enterprise web and mobile applications.

Now that touch devices are an increasing trend and an essential device for more and more enterprises and companies, a framework that supports responsive design to fit screen resolution and user experience of touch devices such as iPad and Android tablets has also become an important value for developers when choosing an UI framework so as to save them time and increase efficiency.

The new ZK 6.5 released today not only brings in this value but in addition offers developers the ability and convenience of only having to write the code once and have it run on desktop and touch devices. Most vendors have a separate touch component set which requires implementation of a separate application. ZK sees it differently, we have taken one step further, the new ZK 6.5 requires you to only use one component set that adapts to various devices bringing true write once, run anywhere and on any device, saving development and maintenance efforts whilst increasing massive productivity.

ZK 6.5’s responsive components handle touch events and device orientation automatically and also optimizes UI components so as to make it more user friendly, achieving real device transparency.

Apart from this, ZK 6.5 also brings with it performance upgrade done by simplifying component structure and minimizing component style sheet to leverage CSS 3 power coming along with a host of new features including but not limited to:

  • Further HTML 5 support
  • Enhanced calendar support
  • Closable notification
