Written in Java, JavaScript and XSL it was designed to be highly extensible and very easy to use for developers.

Supportted browsers include Mozilla Firefox 2.x+,  Opera > 9.x+, Webkit (Safari, Chrome) and Internet Explorer 7.x+.

It comes with a clean JavaScript API that follows strict development guidelines to compensate JavaScript anarchy.

JavaScript is a powerful language because it allows a lot of things but it is also a terrible language for the same reason. That's why we must define boundaries to JavaScript flexibility to provide a clean extensible and maintainable API.

The coding convention tries to make JavaScript looks more like robust languages such as Java or C#. You can have a look at the JavaScript API or the coding convention in the developer section.

The API provides a complete set of Widgets to easily create complex user interfaces.

An XML based language that enables developers/designers to focus on the design of the UI rather than the UI code.

UI programming is a tiresome task, indeed this part takes a lot of time to developers. A simple UI description language is the perfect answer to that issue, making the creation of complex UI painless.

Once the UI is described in XML, the corresponding code is automatically generated (including JavaScript, CSS and HTML), leaving only the functional code to the developer.

The ZWT Tools provides utilities to compile, validate and optimize the code of the application.

Every widgets can be customized using CSS. You can define Themes for the whole set of Widgets in the framework or you can override the style of a specific Widget within an application.

Main features:

  • It is fully compatible with modern Web Browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome and Internet Explorer 7.
  • The Zeleos UIDL enables developers to be more focus on the desing of an application by minimizing UI pure development. Besides describing the UI in a XML language makes applications more flexible and easy to adapt.
  • The ZWT Tools provide many utilities, including a strict ECMA262 compiler, to validate and optimize your code.
  • ZWT is also integrated in Zeleos Web Generator. You can run ZWT applications in a standalone page or embedded inside web sites generated by ZWG.
