The Proof Is in the Application: Two Examples

  1. Using ThinkCAP, ClearNova recreated the functionality of the Java Pet Store application in 447 lines of code - barely 25 percent of Microsoft .NET's best effort - and dramatically lower than pure J2EE coding. And it took one developer just three days to build it.
  2. Carlson Wagonlit Government Travel needed a thin-client web application to replace its existing client/server system. Estimates for code-centric development exceeded one year and a team of almost 20 developers. With ThinkCAP, Carlson went from design to completion in under three months using a team of ten people and delivered over 200 highly transactional web pages. The application is used today by the U.S. State Department and the Department of Interior.
Putting the Focus Back on Business Applications
ThinkCAP has many benefits, but the critical point is ThinkCAP allows organizations to put the focus back on business functionality instead of low-level coding. With its singular focus on simplifying and accelerating web application development, ThinkCAP opens J2EE-based web development to a broader team of developers than ever before. As a result, ThinkCAP allows organizations to reduce project risk, leverage existing IT skills, shorten project timelines, and deliver on-time and within-budget.

With ThinkCAP, you don't need to be a J2EE expert to build business applications.

Up to 60% of COBOL developers and 40% of 4GL developers will not make a successful transition to Java and RAD tools can drastically help the chances of success.

ClearNova: RAD Productivity Is Now Available for J2EE & Open Source. J2EE is powerful yet very complex. While it provides reliability, scalability, and security, those benefits are achieved slowly and at high cost. It's well known that Java suffers from a lack of high-productivity development environments. Existing tools are designed for J2EE programmers and are not geared toward business application developers. As a result, many developers who were productive in 4GLs such as PowerBuilder or business languages such as COBOL or RPG find themselves essentially locked out of building J2EE web applications because of the steep learning curve of traditional low-level Java coding.

The question in J2EE development is not Visual vs Code Centric, but it's Simple vs Complex.
The Visual Approach (or RAD) is used for years and clearly it is not a silver bullet.
You can develop J2EE application easy and rapid using OO and text (XML/Java), if you use a good business framework.

In our company we use OpenXava (http://www.openxava.org) and our RPG and Visual Basic programmers are productive with J2EE in short time, and using OO approach. The tip is simplicity.

Java needs an overhaul, this product comes at a great rtime.
