To bridge the gap between legacy desktop applications and modern web applications, Wisej provides several features that create a straightforward path to migrate existing applications or build green field projects without having to learn a new set of technologies. Support for touch and gestures is built into the software with emulation to support the desktop experience, localization is a first-class citizen, and the applications Wisej produces are out-of-the-box responsive. That means they are readily accessible from desktop browsers, mobile smartphones and tablets.
Pixel Perfect Designer
Design and build complex Web Applications directly in Visual Studio using C# or VB.NET and a rich library of components.
WebRTC Made Simple
Keep the browser and the server in live-sync through small differential Ajax/JSON packets over a failsafe WebSocket connection.
Responsive Web Applications
Wisej supports responsive breaks, responsive properties, flow and grid layout panels, auto sizing, and auto anchoring/docking to build perfect responsive web apps.
It’s a highly specialized framework for Real Time Web Applications; it’s not a general purpose tool for web pages and web sites. Developers can focus on their projects and don’t worry about HTML, state management, backend services, callbacks, ajax panels, synchronization, DOM, CSS, jаvascript, security, authentication, concurrency…
Wisej is designed to build, debug, deploy and manage web applications of any complexity in Visual Studio or SharpDevelop.
Create a web application
in 25 seconds
Open Visual Studio Select New Project -> Wisej -> Web Application.
Visual Studio will create the project template and open the first window in design mode. You can select one of several project templates and add new project items such as pages, custom controls, desktop controls, extensions, etc.
from the toolbox
Choose from dozens of components and add-ons, including extenders that add rotation, animation, speech recognition & synthesis, tooltips & helptips capabilities to other components.
Double click on a component and add C#/VB.NET code that interacts with the browser in real time. It can even draw and paint directly on the browser using HTML5 canvas instructions or plain drawing instructions!
Drop in more components using the pixel-perfect designer, connect to data sources, attach events, create multiple pages and windows, build custom composite controls, drop in third party jаvascript widgets and hit run.
Traditional ASP.NET/MVC/JSP/PHP page assembling systems require a drastic change in the architecture and object-oriented, component-based, event-driven programming paradigm that most enterprise line of business (LOB) developers are used to.
jаvascript widget libraries such as ExtJS, Qooxdoo, Dojo, Kendo, jQueryUI and others have changed that by providing rich client-side widgets that replace ASP.NET/MVC controls. Instead of assembling HTML on the server, these client-side frameworks manage the DOM and create sophisticated controls that behave like (usually better than) WebForms, WinForms, or WPF controls.
However, in a typical LOB app it’s not enough to have cool widgets. You need to execute complex and secure business logic manipulating data from different sources, and to interact with databases and/or external devices. The UI, business logic, reports, visual logic, documents, and databases are all connected in complex applications, with hundreds of components, often requiring challenging modal workflows.
Developers that build (or migrate) typical LOB apps on the web are left to work with text editors (the ASP.NET/MVC designer breaks down very quickly and has little resemblance to what is rendered in the browser). Some jаvascript widget libraries provide tools to manage the widgets, but usually can’t code nor debug.
The learning curve is steep. Development is complex with several heterogeneous parts and tools. Browser/server communications, jаvascript logic and data binding, request handlers, state management, and server logic, are mixed with cumbersome syntax and limited frameworks.
Wisej brings the integrated event-driven, component-based approach that we are used to for desktop/mobile native applications to the web. It provides a rich, virtually unlimited, library of browser/server real-time components designed to build web applications in a coherent environment. The learning curve is flat.
