Nexaweb to Showcase Eclipse and AJAX Integration at EclipseCon 2007

Thought Leadership Panel to Discuss How Eclipse ATF Can Help Overcome Significant Obstacles Surrounding AJAX Development

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 6, 2007 -- Nexaweb Technologies, Inc., provider of the leading standards-based platform for building and deploying Enterprise Web 2.0 (EW2.0) applications, today announced its participation at EclipseCon 2007, March 5-8 in Santa Clara. In addition to being a Silver sponsor of the four-day event, Nexaweb will take center stage by joining a panel of industry leaders to discuss Eclipse's role in the proliferation of Ajax in the developer community.

Enterprise architects and developers are looking to leverage the benefits of Open-Source Software (OSS) as they build and deploy Ajax applications. Likewise, they must meet user and business demands for accessibility, performance, real-time data, reliability and security. Nexaweb eliminates any conflict for architects and developers by embracing Open Source Software (OSS) as part of its Enterprise Web 2.0 application development framework. With Nexaweb Enterprise Web 2.0, organizations can benefit from the low complexity, cost-of-code and reduced maintenance of open source backed by a mission-critical infrastructure proven by more than 5,000 enterprise deployments.

Since October 2004, the company has been an active member of the Eclipse Foundation and has embraced projects including the Data Tools Platform (DTP), the Ajax Toolkit Framework (ATF), and Web Standard Tools (WST) projects as part of its Integrated Development Environment (IDE), Nexaweb Studio. Nexaweb will be demonstrating its Eclipse-based IDE for building enterprise-class Ajax applications in its pavilion (#404-405).

"The Eclipse Ajax Toolkit Framework (ATF) offers extensible frameworks and exemplary tools for building integrated development environments for the different Ajax runtime offerings such as Dojo, Zimbra, etc.," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "Nexaweb is one of the first enterprise vendors to embrace ATF, as well as other projects such as DTP and WTP, to support the design and deployment of enterprise-class Ajax applications."

"The Ajax Toolkit Framework is inspiring developers to fill the cracks slowing the broader adoption of Ajax for enterprise application development," said Robert Goodman, Software Engineer, Emerging Technologies division, IBM Software Group and project leader of the AJAX Tools Framework (ATF) at Eclipse. "This was precisely our motivation to submit ATF as an open-source project to the Eclipse Foundation, and we are pleased to see commercial software vendors like Nexaweb embracing and advancing ATF for use by the enterprise marketplace."

"The Eclipse Foundation, with Data Tools Platform 1.0, provides developers with extensible frameworks and tools that enable improved integration with backend sources and services," said John Graham, Eclipse Data Tools Platform PMC Chair, Sybase. "We are pleased to see Nexaweb use DTP 1.0 as it is validation of the developer community's demand for tools that help them build enterprise applications faster and more cost-effectively."

"As companies become increasingly reliant on technology as the source to improve day-to-day operations, organizations need a powerful yet cost effective IT infrastructure," said Coach Wei, CTO of Nexaweb. "Offering our customers an open solution with a declarative data binding framework for three tier development, Nexaweb fuses the various benefits of OSS, giving developers and enterprises what they need, support for today's business requirements as well as those for the future."
