AJAX Company ICEsoft Joins BEA Partner Program

ICEfaces Framework to Provide BEA Customers With a Path To Deploying Large-Scale AJAX-Based Rich Enterprise Web Applications

(SYS-CON Media) - ICEsoft Technologies, provider of enterprise AJAX solutions, announced that it has become a Select Software Partner in the BEA Partner Program. ICEfaces offers features designed to optimize its support for BEA WebLogic Server, and ICESoft’s project to integrate the ICEfaces package with BEA Workshop Studio will help BEA customers to not only develop state-of-the-art rich web applications using these two familiar BEA products, but also to readily deploy those applications to clustered WebLogic application servers.

ICEfaces is a rich Internet technology that is designed to deliver Thin Client AJAX, helping to enable Java developers to easily create and deploy thin-client rich web applications using standard Java and JSF (JavaServer Faces) techniques without the need for JavaScript programming. With ICEfaces, application logic can be completely server resident and only incremental user-interface changes need be delivered to the browser using a lightweight AJAX bridge.

Another important feature of ICEfaces is its support for AJAX Push technology, which can allow presentation changes to be asynchronously pushed from the application server to the browser client. ICEfaces’ AJAX Push technology can help enable a new breed of rich enterprise applications that are designed to provide instant feedback to application users when server-side application events occur.

“ICEfaces’ server-side integration can help support the rapid development and deployment of a new breed of rich applications,” said Bill Roth, Vice President for BEA Workshop. “When the integration project is complete, it will provide a new way for users of BEA Workshop Studio and BEA WebLogic Server to quickly create and deploy rich enterprise Web applications using the same BEA products they already know,—thereby potentially dramatically shortening the learning curve.”

AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is an increasingly popular technique for developing interactive, Web-based applications that require no applets or proprietary browser plug-ins to operate. Especially valuable for web pages delivering interactive content such as forms or real-time data, AJAX offers advantages that are designed to make it easier and more efficient for users to interact with web-based applications.
