InfoWorld Test Center Recognizes Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite as Ideal Tool for Moving Enterprise Applications to Web 2.0 and Beyond

Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite Supports Multiple Clients; Distinctive Runtime Architecture Supports Heavy Connectivity Demands of Trading Desk and Other Fast-Paced Realms

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - October 10, 2007) - Nexaweb Technologies, Inc., the leading application platform provider for the Productivity-Driven Business, today announced that InfoWorld Magazine's Test Center has given the Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite a "very good" rating based on scores of 8.0 and above for each of the five criteria considered critical to the enterprise IT buying decision including: capability, developer tools, documentation, performance and value.

The review, published on October 5, 2007, describes the Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite as an "ideal tool for the folks responsible for moving an enterprise's Web presence into Web 2.0 and beyond."

The Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite is an application development and deployment platform explicitly designed for enterprise and public sector organizations interested in rapidly developing and deploying mission-critical Rich Internet (RIAs), Composite, Situational Awareness, and Enterprise "mash-up" applications. The first-of-its-kind, the Nexaweb product suite enables professional application architects, developers, and designers to collaboratively build, deploy, and maintain Web-based business applications, or application elements, using Nexaweb Platform and Nexaweb Studio.

Peter Wayner, a contributing editor to InfoWorld's Test Center, reports that Nexaweb's Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite "began as a pure Java-based tool, but now it's expanded to offer a JavaScript version for the client. The applications are built in a collection of Eclipse plug-ins, but now you can choose whether you want the XML that describes the locations of the widgets to be interpreted by a JVM or by a browser. The XML itself remains the same, making it possible to switch freely between the two options."

Wayner found the flexible client deployment options of the Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite and its Internet Messaging Bus communications layer important distinctions versus other tools. Wayner concluded, "The Java version can offer a pure push option to the server because the Java code on the client can open a continuous connection... an important distinction in some applications demanding heavy connectivity, such as apps for trading desks and other fast-paced realms."

"We are very pleased with InfoWorld's evaluation of our Enterprise Web 2.0 Suite," said Chris Heidelberger, CEO at Nexaweb. "The value InfoWorld places on capability, developer tools, performance and value reaffirms our strategy to deliver an Enterprise Web 2.0 application platform that allows developers and enterprise IT to leverage existing assets and skills to deliver high-performance, 'desktop in a browser' applications to a global workforce all while reducing total cost of ownership by as much as 50%, versus traditional application development solutions."

Nexaweb Studio, an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment, provides a comprehensive widget library, declarative data binding and validation framework, and automated debugging and testing features that allow IT organizations to manage critical aspects of an applications architecture including support, quality control, governance, access, and discovery. Nexaweb Platform, a universal application runtime environment, promotes the combination of multiple client-side technologies including Ajax, Java, Flash, .NET, Swing, and others to support the deployment of mission-critical business applications via the Web or of application services for user-driven assembly and personalization.
