The InsiTech Group, an information technology firm specializing in
business analysis, solution design and distributed applications
development, provides value to its clients by combining its IT
expertise with its patent pending JavaTM technology and XML
development tool called XML
Tunneling Technology (XTT). XTT is a complete, distributed application
development and runtime platform that allows for the creation of rich
graphical user interfaces for local/distributed applications, but is as
thin or thinner than an HTML front end. Applications developed with XTT
meet the 100% Pure JavaTM certification standards
and feature a rich GUI interface deployable over any network,
including the Internet.
InsiTech chose the SunTM ONE Studio 4, Enterprise Edition for
JavaTM software (formerly know as ForteTM for JavaTM 4,
Enterprise Edition) as its development tool because the SunTM Open Net
Environment (Sun ONE) has an architecture that can support the
development and deployment of dedicated and Web-based applications
today and the emerging service delivery methods of tomorrow. Because
Sun ONE Studio 4.0 software is a critical component of the Sun ONE
architecture, InsiTech selected this powerful environment to develop
services on demand. This IDE serves as a medium for quickly building
and deploying efficient and highly scalable cross-platform applications
that shorten the development and deployment cycle.
According to David Pociu of InsiTech, "We believe the combination of
Sun ONE Studio 4, the Java platform and our XTT technology will enable
customers to develop distributed solutions that are far superior to any
other approach, while also providing greater productivity for the
developer. We feel that XTT technology together with Sun ONE Studio 4 software
provides the best solution for developing thin client and rich GUI
applications that are also platform independent."
XTT development is done through a combination of wizards, integrating
XTT components into the Sun ONE Studio Enterprise Edition for
Java IDE, and using the IDE's
point and click interface. XTT's goal is rapid application
development, yet it does not limit the developer's ability to use any
of the standard Java programming language techniques.
XTT is also fully scalable. It can be clustered across application
servers, having multiple instances of XTT running independently and/or
chained, and having multiple local or distributed data sources.
For a technology services company, InsiTech used its Sun ONE
Studio software-based XTT to implement a distributed proposal-tracking and
quotes system for hundreds of branch offices and thousands of users.
The system has an easy to use GUI, which was critical for user
productivity. The technology services company initially tried to
implement the system using HTML, but it was too slow to be usable and
didn't have a simple user interface. Within the technology services
company there has been a very positive reaction from the user
community, who see the solution as an excellent tool that enables them
to be both more productive and responsive to their customers.
