Validio gets HTML front-end for their Java GUI based
Validio, one of the Pacific Northwest's premier independent contract programming
companies, had developed a Java GUI application using Swing. The application
was a year ago to help in collecting the information about client requirements
and preferences for project development. Later on Validio saw the benefit
of using the same application via the Internet when Validio's consultants
were collecting input from their customers. Rewriting the application to
be HTML based, while not too difficult, didn't seem to be a very exciting
and cost effective solution. After evaluating WebCream Validio has decided to try using it to convert
their Swing application into HTML based one. In less then 30 minutes they
had a working version of the application that could be accessed from anywhere
around the world. They had to do no programming and using GUI based wizard
of WebCream console was an easy way to web-enable the application. Later
on the original application was slightly modified to make it look even
more effective when rendered as HTML.
