The Issues

Tools previously regarded as suitable for large scale 'n'  tier developments are moving down into the PC development tools space at the same time as traditional PC tools are becoming more scalable. What have to date been two distinct markets are rapidly converging.

The explosion of the Internet and the advent of Network Computing have led to the need for vendors to make their products capable of generating Java applications and reusable components. This will drive down costs.

The systems development approach of the future will be object oriented, but two separate standards, CORBA and DCOM, have emerged. OO tools vendors are choosing the route to adopt. It is a strategic choice.

Web Based & Client Side Development Tools: An Evaluation and Comparison examines the GUI development tools marketplace, explains just what the issues are and reviews the leading players within it. It provides an invaluable guide for those needing to understand trends in development software or those seeking to select this type of technology.

The Report

Web Based & Client Side Development Tools: An Evaluation and Comparison looks at the ever expanding high volume market for GUI development tools. It identifies the issues that generally differentiate the competing tools in this fast moving, fashion conscious area of technology. The report follows the standard Bloor Research format with introductory sections overviewing the market and the issues. As well as the important portability, interoperability and scalability issues that always need to be considered, the report discusses the requirements for Support for Standards, Usability, Development Environment Support, OO Development Facilities, Speed of Application Execution, Internet capability and Pricing.

These issues are used as the basis for comparison when the development tools of 18 vendors are evaluated.

Each product evaluation contains a detailed examination of the development software using the issues identified in the report.

The products are then compared within logical groupings, where the strengths and weaknesses of competing products are clearly and concisely summarised.

Why Buy this Report?

 GUI development tools are often regarded as low cost, almost disposable technology, the wrong choice of development software can ultimately prove to be very expensive.

For many large corporations, the investment in applications using this type of technology is enormous. This can be wasted if a wrong choice is made. Nobody likes to have to change development tools thereby creating another legacy problem and the ongoing requirement for another obsolete skills set.

This report has been written to help technology buyers to gain a thorough understanding of the GUI tools marketplace and what differentiates the major players within it.
