ClearNova Expands Rapid Application Development Platform With ThinkCAP Professional Edition

Offers robust features for smaller projects, companies

ALPHARETTA, Ga., May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearNova Inc. today announced the expansion of its popular rapid application development platform with the release of ThinkCAP 6.0(TM) Professional. It leverages the power of ThinkCAP Enterprise to enable developers at smaller companies and within departmental business units to save time and money in building and deploying complex Web- based business applications.

ThinkCAP Professional is a high-productivity environment for both Java experts and non-experts. With ThinkCAP, businesses are simplifying and accelerating their Web development by creating new applications or Web- enabling existing ones. Developers can focus on the functionality and usability of the application and not get bogged-down with low-level coding.

"Our customers want an application development tool and process that just gets the job done," said Byron Matheson, CEO of ClearNova. "ThinkCAP Enterprise has helped customers quickly build and deploy the web applications that help them run their businesses. With the release of this Professional edition, we are providing that capability to small and mid-sized businesses. Now just about any sized company or IT group can experience Microsoft .NET- type productivity with the power and strength of J2EE."

"ThinkCAP meets a critical need in the marketplace," said Ithamar Sagy, CTO of UniqueLeads.com, Inc. "There are tons of tools for larger enterprises but not much that is accessible to smaller shops such as ours. We tried all the major Java environments on the market and ThinkCAP was the only one that we were able to pick up and use immediately."

Choose the platform to fit your project needs

Version 6.0 of ClearNova's ThinkCAP Professional platform includes features and functionality - developed over four years by ClearNova's application development services team - that helps developers efficiently bring business needs to the Web.

The ThinkCAP Professional platform tools and features include: -- Visual Workbench - allows visual development of pages, navigations, flows, data entry forms, charts and graphs, and reports -- Page Flow Designer - Point and click building of application flow -- Prototyping and "mock" data - Rapid building of "clickable" applications to validate assumptions and requirements; Prototypes can be turned into full applications -- Updateable DataViews - point and click updateable multi-row data entry grids -- Advanced Web Framework - A proven MVC (model-view-controller) framework provides the foundation for ThinkCAP's productivity -- Extensibility and Openness - ThinkCAP includes more than 20 open source projects and brings them together in one framework -- Full client and server-side, extensible validation framework -- Codeless Data Persistence - Seamless integration of popular open-source Hibernate and Castor persistence engines -- Integration with Eclipse - provides metadata constants in J2EE project -- Full CVS Integration

ThinkCAP Enterprise adds all the features of ThinkCAP 6.0 Professional and includes the following features:

-- Integrated content management system with versioning and WebDAV support -- Workflow engine for automating interactive processes -- Service Flow Designer & Engine - Create application processes using SOAP-based Web Services -- Multi-device, Multi-site, Multi-domain capability allows multiple "look & feels" for the same application for different user segments or customers -- Integrated Security through LDAP or ActiveDirectory -- JCA and Web Services adapters to more than 50 different systems and formats including SAP, Seibel, Peoplesoft, CICS, and more -- Distributed Caching Capabilities -- File Server Deployment About ThinkCAP 6.0

ThinkCAP extends the power of J2EE by making it widely accessible for the varied skill sets of corporate business application developers -- many of whom work with tools other than J2EE, including PowerBuilder, RPG, Visual Basic, ColdFusion, and COBOL. Businesses of any size can now leverage in-house skills to deliver high-quality Java Web applications effectively.

ThinkCAP cuts typical development time by up to 50 percent compared with traditional approaches. Developers spend more time zeroing in on core business logic and value-added functionality because ThinkCAP's tools let them quickly prototype and build presentation, application flow, and data binding. Customers also benefit from being able to implement a repeatable process for delivering business applications, further reducing the development and deployment cycle.

Availability and Pricing

ThinkCAP 6.0 Professional is available immediately through ClearNova and is priced at $5,000 per server (1 or 2 CPUs) with unlimited users. An introductory price of $3,500 per server is available until August 31. An evaluation version is available at http://www.clearnova.com/ as a download or CD-ROM and is fully supported with tutorials and developer documentation.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
