Free the Developers: One Language for Web 2.0 Apps

To help unleash developers from complex technologies needed to build Web 2.0 applications, IBM released EGL Community Edition this week, now completely free of charge. An extensive community of students, web developers, PHP developers and JavaScript developers are defining much of the open source movement and a single language like EGL is key. EGL CE is an Eclipse-based tool that simplifies development of JavaScript-based Web applications. Developers who usually code in PHP, Ruby on Rails, Groovy, JavaScript and HTML can now download free EGL tools to code, test, and debug rich Web 2.0 applications in one simplified language.

EGL CE supports development of rich, JavaScript-based user interfaces without writing any JavaScript, and Java-based services without writing any Java code. More time coding and less time deploying.

With complex Web 2.0 applications making up a growing part of developers’ daily workload, an extensible platform such as EGL CE offers valuable time savings in a more simplified programming model. Anyone can try it -- EGL CE is now available for download at no cost at
