Ekas RapidWeb.SL is an extensive and powerful framework to help Silverlight developers create back-end content and database administration solutions for rich and complex database-driven Silverlight web application. Bunch of stuff to simplify front-end development is also included.
Using all the best from the innovative Silverlight technology, we have created this comprehensive and powerful framework to provide developers with vast set of components and classes to make back-end web site development as effective as possible.
Whole framework consists of extensive hierarchy of base classes (including base forms, visual and non-visual classes and components) intended to cover all common tasks for online content, data, and database management, including (but not limiting by) user/role/policy handling, content publishing, visual as well as query-driven database administration, data visualization, and many other tasks implied by the term "Rich web application back end solution development", and very simple ways to extend basic functionality with minimal efforts and development time.
Not limited by the back-end needs and approaches, RapidWeb.SL framework also contains rich stuff for quick and simple development for front-end data and content representation part of a web application.
A lot of routines, functions, and helper classes are also included to help developer focus on high-level development process, avoiding routine work of low-level functionality implementation.
Innovative technology of binary serialization has been implemented to beat the bottleneck of transferring large protions of serialized data between server-side WCF services and client-side Silverlight applications. Using binary serialization with set of know-how improvements researched and developed by Ekas Software developers, amount of data to be transferred has been revolutionary decreased, and sending/receiving large data sets is quick and reliable using our RapidWeb.SL framework.
Very hard and extensive job has been also done to make it as easy as possible to integrate RapidWeb.SL based solutions with other frameworks and component libraries as well as with existing legacy code, to make it smooth and easy to migrate.
Current version of RapidWeb.SL framework being currently in development is implemented using Silverlight 4 technology. We are holding our hand on pulse to port it to Silverlight 5 once it's been finally released.
We are currently working very hard on sharpening and improving the RapidWeb.SL framework, and creating full set of required documentation for the product as well.
Beta release of Ekas RapidWeb.SL has been scheduled for this August, with final releases planned in Q4. Stay in touch with us to be first to know when it is available to download and try. Feel free to use our contact form to ask any questions and be informed about further news.
