JAVA DEVELOPERS DEVELOP APPLICATIONS AT NOT COST.ICEsoft Technologies, Inc. has debuted ICEfaces Community Edition. A breakthrough for the Java community, ICEfaces Community Edition greatly simplifies the process of creating and deploying enterprise-level AJAX applications. As of today, Java developers can develop sophisticated applications at no cost, using the Community Edition of ICEfaces.
in full Extensible Markup Language.
Markup language developed to be a simplified and more structural version of SGML. It incorporates features of HTML (e.g., hypertext linking), but is designed to overcome some of HTML's limitations. (AJAX), a technique for developing interactive Web-based applications that have the richness of conventional software programs residing on the user's PC. In contrast to more recent "AJAX toolkits," ICEfaces offers a sophisticated framework and a comprehensive set of components that are abstracted from client runtime software, thereby dramatically reducing the cost and complexity of application development.
ICEfaces leverages the entire J2EE (Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition) A platform from Sun for building distributed enterprise applications. J2EE services are performed in the middle tier between the user's machine and the enterprise's databases and legacy information systems. ecosystem of tools and execution environments. Rich web application features are developed in pure Java Refers to initiatives from Sun that specify 100% compliance with its Java specification. The goal is to maintain a consistent, single interface for Java so that all Java Virtual Machines can run all Java programs. See Holy Grail. , and in a pure thin-client model. There are no Applets or proprietary browser plug-ins required. ICEfaces applications are rendered as JavaServer Faces See JSF.
(programming, Java) JavaServer Faces - (JSF) A system for building web applications by assembling reusable user interface components in a web page, connecting these components to a data source and passing client events to server handlers.

The benefits of the ICEfaces Community Edition are:
-- Develop and deploy thin-client rich Internet applications This is a list of rich Internet applications. They are organised by their use. Communication
-- Provides a rich component suite including Auto-complete, Menu, Table, Tree, Tabs, Drag & Drop, animation effects, and many more;
-- Provides incremental thin-client UI updates without plug-ins for a more responsive user-experience;
-- Supports server-initiated UI updates -- removes traditional web application request/response communication barrier;
-- Support for collaborative application development (Chat, Webcast, etc.);
-- Deploys to J2EE application servers (Tomcat A popular Java servlet container from the Apache Jakarta project. Tomcat uses the Jasper converter to turn JSPs into servlets for execution. Tomcat is widely used with the JBoss application server. For more information, visit http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat. See Jakarta and JBoss. , WebLogic, WebSphere, JBoss, Oracle, etc.) and supports all the popular browsers (IE, Firefox, Mozilla, Safari, etc.).
"We believe ICEfaces Community Edition is the product the J2EE community has been waiting for," said Robert Lepack, vice president of marketing for ICEsoft. "This product is available for download at http://www.icesoft.com/ under a completely free commercial license. Once developers try ICEfaces, we're confident it will become the platform of choice for all their rich enterprise application initiatives."
Among the many innovations in ICEfaces that simplify AJAX for Java developers is the ICEfaces Component Suite, a complete set of rich JSF components that take full advantage of the benefits of the ICEfaces framework. With this release of ICEfaces, new components such as menus, auto-complete, drag-and-drop capabilities, and animation effects have been added to an already extensive list of rich UI components.
