More from the review:

"This quick test drive of the product only scratches the surface of what Servoy can accomplish. Books could be written (and some have already been) on the features that are available without generating any manual code, and if an expert wants to embed some manual code, most anything can be accomplished with Servoy."

"Developers will find that Servoy does live up to its promises of code-free application generation that can be deployed in a number of ways and will find the product a powerful ally for creating custom applications for both internal and external use."
