Metawidget is a 'smart User Interface widget' that populates itself, at runtime, with UI components to match the properties of your business objects.

Metawidget does this without introducing new technologies.

Hi, can we develop multi-column per row based UI defined at Business Objects? How about data binding with business objects for swing and ICE-Faces, EXT-GWT or GWT Very soon We are launching an framework which is also Business Object Oriented, which has the support for Adobe Flex, swing and GWT, it also provide the excellent Binding support for the business objects. We called it DD-Swing. Hopefully I will honor to know about binding part in Metawidget

Anees,

Thanks for your interest.

Metawidget works at a very granular level, fitting in with your existing UI, so yes it is possible to have multiple Metawidgets arranged in rows. And yes, we support data binding for Swing, ICEfaces and GWT, and many more.

DD-Swing sounds interesting. Could you please send me a link when it is available?

Regards,

Richard.
