We produced Inq so that we could rapidly develop distributed applications. More than that, we wanted to be able to express them with as little code as possible and make them easy to maintain. Inq was born out of

  1. the volume of repetition when using existing frameworks and methods
  2. the lack of anything that integrated sufficiently well across the multiple tiers of development

Now with JMS, easy report generation, greatly improved examples and genuinely reusable GUI elements, Inq is available at www.inqwell.com under the Artistic License. Inq remains focused on desktop applications at present, however we are well advanced with developing a web interface to its server implementation and are integrating it with the qooxdoo web client framework. More on that soon.
