We are excited to announce that Visual WebGui 6.4 client is going to adopt jQuery as its client engine in order to provide better support for cross browsers, enhanced UI behaviors and most important provide a familiar API to write Visual WebGui extensions such as custom controls and utilizing different protocols such as JSON and REST.

jQuery is a lightweight open source JavaScript library (only 15kb in size) that in a relatively short span of time has become one of the most popular libraries on the web. jQuery simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

We believe that the combination will result in a powerful way to develop web applications allowing developers to encapsulate client code and different processes in to reusable blocks that provides support for rapid development of professional level applications. At the same time it will provide a way to extend these blocks to create new ones or to make existing ones interoperate with external resources or legacy code.

This provides Visual WebGui developers with a familiar way to develop applications using full object oriented environment utilizing the power of the server but at the same time the ability to write extensions using one of the most popular client side frameworks.

VWG 6.4 beta 1 which is planned to be released in the very near future will already include jQuery integrated available for custom development and usage within the different Visual WebGui controls. By the release of VWG 6.4 beta 2 all the client side code will be working with help of the jQuery library.

This has been a long standing enhancement requested by many community members, which had been made possible as a result of the extreme infrastructural work done in the 6.4 version. I believe it marks a new level in Visual WebGui’s development team achievements.

For more information about 6.4, bugs and features visit the official Visual WebGui Forum.
