Qbizm Technologies joins Sun's Forte for Java Extension Partner Program

Author: JT Smith

San Jose, California - July 10th, 2001 - Qbizm Technologies, Inc., a leading visual component framework provider, today announced that it has joined the growing number of tool vendors building extensions to Sun Microsystems' Forte[tm] for Java[tm] integrated development environment (IDE). Qbizm's "dynamic face" component framework HyperQbs[tm] extends the Forte for Java product to provide customers with a single platform for developing and assembling server-side user interface components from visual graphical user interface (GUI) components. When constructing a web site that provides a complex GUI, developers often create special purpose infrastructure that simplifies re-using form parts and facilitates the process of applying sweeping changes to style and behavior to all of a site's GUI elements. Over time, the specialized infrastructure created to support all of these tasks tends to take on a life of its own. Unfortunately the idiosyncratic qualities of a particular site's GUI software make it difficult to take advantage of generic purpose programming tools and environments, leaving developers with inefficient, tedious and hard-to-maintain code. Qbizm Technologies addresses these issues with its award-winning component framework HyperQbs and dynamic face technology.

"Joining Sun?s Forte for Java Extension Partner Program is a natural step in complementing our JavaServer[tm] Faces framework with a widely adopted visual development tool," said Peter K. Ulrich, CEO and president of Qbizm Technologies, Inc. "We are excited to work together with Sun Microsystems in bridging the current market gap and being one of the first to market in implementing the new JavaServer Faces specification described in JSR-127, which is under development in the Java Community Process[SM]."

"The quality and innovation of Qbizm's visual component framework made the company an ideal candidate to enhance the Forte for Java product," said David Taber, director of portal and business development, Forte Tools, Sun Microsystems. "Now our users have direct access to a wide selection of modules and components from within the Forte for Java IDE. We are also impressed with Qbizm's dynamic face technology, providing a new dimension to server-side GUI component architecture."

Qbizm Technologies, Inc. (http://www.qbizm.com) is an infrastructure company enabling developers to develop and non-programmers to visually assemble enterprise scale front-end applications from reusable GUI components. Its world class dynamic face component framework, HyperQbs[tm], extends Java[tm] 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition-compliant application servers while providing them a a single platform standardized approach to rapid front-end development, assembly and maintenance. The unique and future-proof dynamic face technology automatically adjusts application?s visual content representation and behaviour based on users? browsing devices and personalization profiles (HTML browser, PDA, WAP, SMS, voice, Flash etc.) reducing development costs significantly even for yet non-existent devices and protocols. Qbizm is a privately held company headquartered in the heart of California?s Silicon Valley with R&D labs located in Central Europe.
