Rich Internet Application framework gets major release
ICEfaces 3.0.0 released
Enterprise-ready and open source RIA development framework ICEfaces has received a landmark release this week, with the introduction of ICEfaces 3.0.0.
Part of the ICEsoft Technologies team's portfolio of tools, ICEfaces aims to add a bit of zest to developing web-based applications, by bringing an air of simplicity and enhancements to the Rich Internet Application framework. It does this through bringing in some new RIA component suites like:
- ICEfaces Advanced Components (ACE) - The newest
- ICEfaces ICE Components – Ideal for older applications and older browsers
- ICEfaces Enterprise Components (EE) – A commercial component suite of specialty composite components
This release brings the tally of ACE components to over 40 components, some improved and new ones including an industry-leading new ace:dataTable, support for jQueryUI ThemeRoller themes, and a flexible new ace:ajax tag and client-event support. Crucially for some, there's also integration for Eclipse's IDE (3.6 and 3.7) and NetBeans (7.0, and 7.1), hopefully making a seamless transition with bigger IDEs.
There's new support for MyFaces JSF, over 400 other
enhancements, improvements, and bug fixes. For full in-depth
