DeKlarit V CTP Released : the end of the beginning 2
One year ago we started a new challenge for DeKlarit: an extensible and robust platform for creating rich applications based on Model Driven Development.
And today we released our first CTP.
The same happened some time ago with GeneXus and its GeneXus X version.
In this year we have been working hard in many areas but mainly in our core technology, today we can say that DeKlarit is using the same core technology than GeneXus.
So in terms of modeling DeKlarit is a subset of GeneXus concepts.
In terms of what you can generate, Deklarit will focus in Microsoft Technology as always. (ie: ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, WP7)
Our approach for Model Driven Development remains.
In this CTP we introduced a bunch of new features.
More than features, we included a completely new language for Data Providers (I’ll write about this topic in a future post).
Obviously DeKlarit V is fully integrated inside Visual Studio 2010.
And we will target the following generators:
· ASP.NET Forms
· ASP.NET MVC
· Silverlight for Business Applications
· Silverlight for WP7
All generators will be open source. For example our new ASP.NET MVC 2 generator is hosted in google code at http://code.google.com/p/deklaritmvc/
If you are interested on helping us improve DeKlarit please download our CTP and connect to our DeKlarit V forum
Another good new is that we have a new alliance with DVelop, they are creating a complete suite of generators over DeKlarit Models and additionally they will be offering consulting services if you want to move to this new world of Model Driven Development.
Some time ago I wrote about the end of the beginning for GeneXus, this is the end of the beginning for Deklarit !
