Visual WebGui a unique approach to AJAX development
Visual WebGui is not just another AJAX framework but rather a different approach to web application development, specially designed to simplify building highly complex applications like Outlook Web Access (OWA). Visual WebGui makes it possible for developers to create applications that were previously developed only by the "big guys". While web development environments such as ASP.NET and JSP have made huge strides in creating a rich environment for developing web applications, they have always targeted ......

Microsoft Atlas does not give ASP.NET what it needs
As the developer of Visual WebGui it is obvious that I don't like the way ASP.NET is taking us and as I have been faced with the shallow saying WebGui can be replaced by Atlas I would like to point out why I think Microsoft Atlas is good for enhancing existing ASP.NET applications but is by no means a way of developing new web applications. I was trying to create my ClassBrowser demo in Microsoft Atlas to compare those technologies and after five hours of hard work I still was searching how to do ......

WebGui gateways bridge WinForms object module and web development
Visual WebGui basically leverages the WinForms object module to give you a new development experience developing rich internet applications like outlook web access. This object module by say covers 90% of what you need in order to create a outlook web access application. So how do we bridge the WinForms object module and web development ? through the concept of Gatways. Every WebGui component can declare it self as a WebGui gateway using the IGatewayControl interface, this allow controls to declare ......

Why I developed Visual WebGui ?
Well first of all for those of you who do not know what is Visual WebGui (shame on you)...

WebGui lets you develop outlook web access like applications with out any know how of web development. If you are a WinForms developer or a VB6 developer you should be able to start developing ......

Observer Design Pattern
I am currently working on a MMC like application (over WebGui which is kind of WinForms for web) that is going to be a DNN admin. I am using the observer design pattern through an object wrapper called ItemData which is pretty much a wrapper objects that has events on changes made to the wrapped object.I have also created a ItemsData class that is a wrapper for a collection of ItemData that has also events on changes made to the wrapped collection. This is way when you have a form that changes a ......

Gentle.NET ORM
I have seen lots of .NET architect speak highly about NHibernate which I agree that is a great framework but I think that as it was ported from java they did not take the .NET advantages in consideration. I have tried for a while to use framework which I found to be more of what I expected from a .NET framework as it uses attributes as it's mapping mechanism and by that you get in my opinion a better experience as a programmer. “Gentle.NET is a CLS-compliant, database independent ......
