Syncfusion Introduces New ASP.NET Suite, Adds Universal App Support in Essential Studio 2014 Volume 2

Syncfusion, Inc., a developer solutions company, today announced the release of Essential Studio Enterprise Edition 2014, Volume 2, its second major release of the year. The release includes several key updates, including a new set of ASP.NET controls completely driven by HTML 5 and JavaScript, and introduces the company’s suite of universal Windows app controls.

The new version of Syncfusion’s ASP.NET suite is fully rendered on the client side to improve user interaction and performance. All the controls have a rich design time experience and also allow data binding to server-side data sources. Previous versions of Essential Studio for ASP.NET, now referred to as ASP.NET Classic, will continue to be supported.

“The response to enhancing our .NET web controls with HTML 5 and JavaScript has been very positive,” said Daniel Jebaraj, vice president of Syncfusion.

The Volume 2 release also marks the beginning of Syncfusion support for universal Windows apps, enabling developers to more efficiently create apps for the family of Windows devices and expand their customer base across Windows tablets, phones, and desktops. The initial set of more than 30 universal app controls from Syncfusion will include innovative charts, grids, and more.

“We are excited to see Visual Studio partners like Syncfusion incorporate the latest tooling advancements into their products,” said Mitra Azizirad, General Manager, Developer Platform and Sales at Microsoft. “Helping developers maximize their current investments and reach more customers is a key goal Microsoft and Syncfusion have in common.”

Exciting updates have been made to the other Essential Studio platforms, such as touch support for Windows Forms. Several new controls have also been added, including:

  • New Windows Forms controls, such as a maps control, rating control, radial menu, and hub tile.
  • A masked edit control for WinRT.
  • A schedule control for ASP.NET MVC.
  • Stunning 3-D chart options, including scatter, line, and area charts, for all of the XAML platforms (WinRT, Windows Phone, WPF, and Silverlight).
  • A new tree grid control for JavaScript.

In addition to these new controls, Syncfusion has added support for TypeScript to its JavaScript suite. TypeScript is a development language that aids in the structuring of code in JavaScript, which is especially useful when dealing with complex or large-scale applications.

The new HTML 5 and JavaScript-powered ASP.NET controls, universal app support, and updated features are all available in Essential Studio Enterprise Edition. For a closer look at these and hundreds of other fully customizable controls, visit www.syncfusion.com/downloads/evaluation and download a free 30-day trial.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
