IT Mill Integrates Google Web Toolkit

Open sources its RIA development tools

IT Mill Ltd has released version 5.0 of its IT Mill Toolkit under the Apache 2.0 open-source license. With IT Mill Toolkit 5 developers now have the building blocks for RIAs that will allow them to work with Java alone. Toolkit 5.0 unites client-side AJAX tools with server-side Java tools, shortening the RIA development cycle.

RIAs enhance the usability of Web applications. The focus of Toolkit 5.0 is developer productivity. “In practice this means the best cross-browser compatibility, high AJAX performance, and inherently secure RIA applications so that developers can focus on application workflows,” says IT Mill CEO Joonas Lehtinen.

IT Mill Toolkit 5: Java and the Google Web Toolkit
Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source development framework that allows Web developers to create client-side AJAX applications in Java. With GWT, you can develop and debug AJAX applications and then let the compiler translate your Java application to browser-compliant JavaScript and HTML.

As part of its commitment to the open-source developer community, IT Mill will license the core components of IT Mill Toolkit 5 under the Apache 2.0 open source license.

The pragmatic Apache License enables all users – commercial and private alike – to deploy applications based on IT Mill Toolkit. A commercial license is also available for those who need enterprise-level testing tools, product guarantees and technical support.
