Rich Internet Applications (RIA) is catching on very well. It is easy to appreciate the need to have an integrated desktop – web experience for all the good things such applications can bring.
However, in building RIA, two things from the web development experience become important:
- Being cross-platform and not to exclude anyone (as the web does not do it)
- Refactor and reuse what exists (skills, programming/deployment models, code-base, tools, and more)
With the kind of popularity enjoyed by Java and related open-source products makes us to think that Java-driven RIA may just be the best way to go. RIA platform like Dekoh combine many familiar technologies, products, API, making it easier for web developers to address desktop oppportunities with ease.
Those of you who will be at JavaOne in the next few days, are welcome to come and see Dekoh at Pramati Technologies booth #812 (right at the entrace, just after Intel).
