Enterprise Web Developer (EWD) is our advanced web application delvelopment technology and Ajax framework.
EWD's unique approach makes it one of the world's most productive platforms for web application development, allowing you to build sophisticated, modern Ajax database-driven applications as simply and as quickly as building static web pages.
If you're a web designer, frustrated at why database-linked web applications are always considered so much more complex than ordinary web sites and require programmers to take control, then you'll love EWD! EWD turns the Web/Ajax development paradigm on its head, making the process simple and intuitive for the designer whilst making programming a small, supporting part of the process, leaving the designer fully in control.
EWD's sophisticated custom tags provide you with the ability to extend EWD's functionality. You control the way EWD works for you, not the other way round.
New! EWD brings you the realtime web!
Break free of the many limitations imposed by the HTTP protocol and throw away all your previous concepts on how to design your web applications! EWD's integration of HTML5's Websockets brings a whole new world of possibilities.

EWD is in production use across a variety of sectors for commercial, transactional Ajax applications, ranging in size from small, in-house applications to enterprise-scale, mission critical applications. Read below how it has been used for one of the USA's largest healthcare applications:
