There is a better approach to application development. ClearNova's ThinkCAP offers a faster, easier way to produce business applications that meet schedule, cost, and skill constraints. ThinkCAP is focused on one thing: to simplify and accelerate the development and maintenance of web-based business applications. It produces applications that are robust, reliable, and roll out in less than half the time.
Lowering the Bar to J2EE Use
ThinkCAP extends the power of J2EE by making it widely accessible. ThinkCAP visual workbench provides easy-to-use, extensible data-aware components that can be used and configured easily and tied to data, objects, or XML. ThinkCAP helps with developing pages, page flows, forms, data views, queries, charts and graphs, and much more. Instead of writing plumbing code, ThinkCAP lets developers concentrate on functionality. With ThinkCAP, you don't need to be a J2EE expert to create a business application.
TieredRADTM: Productivity Tools for the Entire Development Team
ThinkCAP's TieredRAD approach, however, is one of empowerment, not exclusion--of increasing productivity and shortening development time by matching tools to people, and people to tasks. TieredRAD provides the appropriate tools and levels of RAD support for everyone contributing to application development.
ThinkCAP supports J2EE programmers with object-relational mapping, service assembly of web services & EJBs, server object creation, and a bundled copy of Eclipse (any tool is supported however). Business developers use advanced visual designers, Smart Data Binding, and event-driven coding. Content owners have integrated content management features.
Since team members use tools that are designed for their specific skills, they can work faster, with fewer errors. And because they work concurrently, the applications are built faster and more reliably.
Productivity and Reusable Components
The Proof Is in the Application
It's easy to claim that ThinkCAP is fast, productive, and scalable to the enterprise, but real world applications built with ThinkCAP and in use today prove it.
Carlson Wagonlit Government Travel needed a J2EE thin-client application to replace its existing Oracle Forms application. 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 eight people. Carlson was then awarded a ten-year contract to provide travel services to 23 government agencies.
