Get active with this UI toolkit

March 05, 2004

I hope im wrong but I'm starting to think that most client-side developers have given up on common widget libraries, the inherent problem is the fact that supporting all flavour of browsers becomes so difficult and error prone that most development stops within the first few months.

Is it really the case that increase in bandwidth will be the death of the thin-client application? or is common client-side application delivery just before its time?

Anyway whatever your conclusion there is a new widget library called Active UI. It is a cross-browser Web GUI toolkit. This opensource project currently comprises of the following widgets, grid, tree, tabs, menu. It is built using DHTML, Javascript DOM, CSS and XML and can be integrated with any CGI page generation systems such as JSP, ASP, PHP and anything else that will generate the script at the Standard-Output level.
