Nexaweb Technologies released the latest version of Nexaweb Studio. Nexaweb Studio 3.0, says the company, is an Eclipse-based IDE that offers enterprise Web developers, Ajax, J2EE/Java developers and software engineers a standards-based, visual design environment for creating enterprise Web 2.0 applications.
Nexaweb Studio 3.0 works in conjunction with the Nexaweb Platform (Version 4.5 was also announced today), using a drag-and-drop design environment. Developers can access Ajax UI capabilities through plug-ins to the Eclipse Ajax Toolkit Framework (ATF) and Web Standard Tools (WST) projects. Nexaweb Studio 3.0 supports Dojo controls, as well as various other third-party Java and Ajax widget libraries, according to Nexaweb Technologies.
For integration with back-end data sources and services, Nexaweb Studio 3.0 offers a plug-in to the Eclipse Data Tools Platform (DTP) project, which supports database frameworks, relational database tools and more. The Nexaweb Platform provides an XML framework and a visual, Eclipse-based development environment with declarative data binding, extensible data services, and a communications layer to help developers deploy enterprise-class applications over the Web.
