Kaazing Improves Realtime Web Apps Using Java EE 6

Launching at the DEMO conference this week, Kaazing showed off a new product duo to improve and scale realtime app development for the Web. Rich Internet applications from online poker and chat to stock trading and online auctions demand frequent client updates. Kaazing's Enterprise Comet Bus speeds the message brokering required for those updates and the Kaazing Virtual Machine provides runtime translation of Java bytecode for browsers—even on mobile devices—so browsers can run a realtime application without any special plug-ins.

The result is more reliable, scalable realtime applications for the Web, leveraging developers' existing Java skills. Kaazing is proof that the “write once, run anywhere” value of Java continues to be important. According to Kaazing CTO John Fallows, “As far as we're concerned, the enterprise equals Java.”

Chris Shipley, executive producer of DEMO, says, “Kaazing has the potential to revolutionize the Web and become the backbone of rich Internet applications.”

Here are some candid shots of the Kaazing crew from DEMO and you can see their six-minute stage demo here.
