The Wazaabi team has announced the release of Wazaabi 1.0.0.
Wazaabi is an open source project that delivers significant benefits for building Eclipse RCP based J2EE rich client applications. Wazaabi includes a GUI framework that brings XUL to Eclipse RCP plug-in developers and a set of components that link the client-side XUL based viewers and forms to server-side business components.
The release 1.0.0 brings Wazaabi to a new level of usability and robustness. Well documented, with a learning curve shorter than ever, Wazaabi 1.0.0 promises to be the industry-ready XUL based J2EE Rich Client framework everyone was waiting for.
With Wazaabi, Eclipse RCP UIs are not anymore developed using SWT but described in XML files, using the XUL standard. Thus, it is easy for designers to create UIs and for developers to create rich client components linked to server-side business logic.
