DevExpress Announces the Newest Version of Its .NET Business Application Framework

DevExpress Technologies for Visual Studio Help You Build Your Best, Reduce the Amount of Code You Write, Increase Your Productivity, and Create Stunning Applications for Windows and the Web in the Shortest Possible Time

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Developer Express is proud to announce the immediate availability of the eXpressApp Framework (XAF), an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) based .NET business application framework designed to radically simplify the way in which software developers throughout the world deliver solutions for both WinForms and ASP.NET.

Experience the DevExpress Difference

If you've ever created a .NET business application in the past, you know the numerous mundane and repetitive tasks required of you and your team to deliver a solution to market -- from creating the actual database using a DBMS, to building application forms, from arranging visual controls on those forms to binding actual data.

The eXpressApp Framework was created to shatter all these laborious and time consuming requirements. When you create your project in XAF, you simply design your business model via our ORM tool. The framework then handles data server management and automatically generates a UI for the required platform. It also supplies numerous ready-to-use modules so you can enhance your applications with reporting, scheduling, security, and much more.

The bottom line is simple... With the eXpressApp Framework, you and your team can now deliver in one day, what used to take weeks with Visual Studio .NET.
