JackBe, provider of enterprise AJAX solutions that advance the online experience, at JavaOne announced support for two key industry initiatives that strengthen its position as a leading provider of enterprise-class AJAX solutions.
The company said its AJAX development solution, the JackBe NQ Suite , will support the Eclipse development platform, enabling developers using JackBe's suite to work within their environment of choice. At its booth, JackBe will give JavaOne attendees a sneak peek of how its development suite works within the Eclipse environment. An advocate for the advancement of enterprise Web technologies, JackBe also announced it has joined the OpenAjax Initiative to help further the group's mission to simplify the browsing experience, and make it easier for users to shop, work, plan, correspond and navigate online.
"The Eclipse foundation and the OpenAjax initiative are exciting examples of vendors working together to improve the Web, and we're looking forward to being part of these two efforts," said Luis Derechin, chief executive officer of JackBe. "Our commitment to these important industry standards enables JackBe to continue to focus on the larger business value AJAX provides. In addition, by combining our AJAX expertise with SOA technologies to deliver complete enterprise solutions, we will further help enterprises worldwide advance the online experience to gain real business benefits."
