ICEsoft / ILOG Alliance Brings JViews Integration to ICEfaces

ICEsoft collaborates with ILOG to enhance AJAX web application development

At the 6th International AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo that opened in San Jose, CA, today, ICEsoft Technologies Inc. - leading provider of standards-compliant AJAX-based solutions - announced a technical integration with ILOG. The joint efforts will enable developers to use ILOG’s Java-based visualization technology within ICEfaces to rapidly build sophisticated enterprise-level AJAX Applications with displays that are graphically-rich, reactive and collaborative.

"ILOG and ICEfaces offer complementary products that, when used together, can provide exponential value to users," said Robert Lepack, vice president of marketing, ICEsoft Technologies. "There is real innovation here, in that ILOG's visualization components can inherit the Ajax push capabilities of ICEfaces to allow them to provide even more dynamic, real-time visualization to end users."

AJAX is a popular choice in developing web applications because it is available on all browsers and does not require any special third party plug-in installation. But developers working with this technology often must blend several tools, libraries and technologies together. To do this effectively, they rely on AJAX integration platforms, such as ICEsoft's ICEfaces, which ensures all of the component parts of the displays work well together. Until now, creating an AJAX application that included very graphical displays (such as diagrams or maps) that update in real-time was very difficult. The integration of ILOG JViews with ICEfaces now enables developers to more easily create interfaces that are far easier to code and maintain and, at the same time, far more powerful and intuitive than ever before.

By also supporting the AJAX ax push technology (a.k.a. Comet) offered by ICEfaces, ILOG JViews' web displays can update automatically in real-time when the underlying data values change and reflect edits or updates from peers. Developers can now rely on proven components to create leading AJAX web applications.

Most recently, GoldenGate Software Inc., a leader in real-time Transactional Data Management (TDM) solutions, leveraged the benefits of the advanced ILOG visualization components in conjunction with ICEfaces AJAX push capabilities. "We wanted to provide our customers with a rich graphical monitoring solution for improved overall management of their real-time data integration activities, as well as monitoring highly available mission critical environments. After significant research, we found that ILOG and ICEfaces provided us the best way to build interactive visualization", said Dilip Karki, development manager, Java Products, GoldenGate Software, Inc. "With these capabilities, we are building a leading-edge product and solution which enables our customers to access real-time information across the enterprise."
