  • Java Business RIA redefined!

    The future belongs to Rich Internet Applications (RIA) – they are increasingly replacing the classical desktop application. And it is no wonder, as this latest generation of web applications offers a totally new kind of interactivity. Furthermore, RIAs spare your budget thanks to their operating system independence and the fact that they can be used without installation. According to the market research organization Forrester Research, RIA technology will be deployed in around 60% of all software development projects in the coming years.


    The disadvantage of most of today’s RIA frameworks is that they were developed for the optimization of web sites. They rapidly reach their limits, therefore, with complex business applications. Canoo Engineering’s Canoo RIA Suite with its modular design provides a remedy. It’s heart is ULC (UltraLightClient), a proven and stable component for the development of RIAs – optimized for the performance requirements of business applications. Thanks to the 100% java-based homogeneous programming model, ULC reduces the complexity of RIA projects to a minimum. RIAs developed with ULC score highly due to their low development and maintenance costs, and are more than a match for classical desktop applications in user-friendliness, functionality, attractiveness, robustness and performance.

    Since March 31, 2010, ULC Core is available as a Beta Release. The Canoo Ria Suite will be released officially just before Pentecost 2010. The advantages at a Glance:

    • Up to 50% reductions in development costs
    • Puts business functionality on to the web without quality losses
    • Lower operational costs thanks to server side maintenance and standardized technology
    • Maximum security thanks to standard conformity
    • Straightforward and rapid development due to uniform Java basis
    • Robust and scalable architecture
    • No longer time-consuming client-side deployment
    • Enables highly interactive and user friendly interfaces
    • No browser adaptation required
    • Optimal user productivity due to rapid response times
    • Lower project risk thanks to well engineered, tried and tested technology
    • Impressive prototypes in minimal time

    “We switched to ULC in the middle of a large software project, as we were not able to implement all the requirements with the technology we were using at the time. ULC then enabled us to at least double our productivity, in turn allowing the project to be completed on time.”

    Greg Hutchinson, Principal Developer of a large Canadian financial institution
