(The Hosting News) – Hyfinity announces the launch of a free community edition of its WebMaker “code-free” Web Development platform.
“Today our customers do not write, or even generate a single line of Java, .NET or 4GL code, even for complex web applications. We want to harness the power of collaboration of a global community, by rapidly expanding the community.
WebMaker version 3.2 combines the Speed and Simplicity of forms tools and the Power of bespoke development, empowering you to create rich and accessible, well architected web applications. Our customers deliver web forms and applications 3 – 5 times faster than traditional web development approaches. We want customers to focus on building enterprise web applications, rather than focusing on low level plumbing code,” says Steve Bailey at Hyfinity.
Why a Community Edition?
Bailey continues, “We want to deliver business value to our agile WebMaker community by providing a free Community Edition. Today, you can share tips & tricks through our self-service Forum, and contribute to future product development.
Bailey concludes, “Our mission is to simply web development by delivering a ’code-free’ guarantee to our customers. We want the community to drive future UI widget and form templates.
Open source is typically great for building the best 80% of a solution, but lacks the ‘full packaged’ product offered by commercial organisations. Most organisations discover that many of the open source toolkits and frameworks are unable to meet all their key objectives. WebMaker by contrast provides the vital ingredients:
- High web development productivity, with low learning curve
- Visual Design tool rather than coding frameworks
- Ability to capitalise on data-driven assembly – WS*, Rest Services and SQL/XML Data-stores
- Ability to deliver linear, cost-effective scalability and performance
- Web Standards, J2EE architecture, providing support for popular browsers and open source platforms.
Harnessing these aspects will deliver significant productivity for WebMaker users. WebMaker addresses the sweet spot between restrictions of traditional forms products and flexibility of bespoke development approaches. This provides unparalleled productivity for Enterprise and SaaS web application development, through unique customisation of WebMaker for each specific customer.”
