SmartClient is a framework for the development of highly interactive, cross-platform web applications. The framework provides a set of JavaScript and XML technologies that enable the building of web applications with desktop-like user interfaces. SmartClient combines DHTML (Dynamic HTML), pageless UI architecture, database access, server integrations with Java and .NET, and data presentation components to offer robust solutions similar to those created for desktop computers using technologies such as Swing in the Java world or Windows Forms in .NET environments. The open-source Isomorphic SmartClient system enables rapid development without compromising on features or performance capabilities across all major web browsers.
