ILOG announced ILOG JViews 8I, the latest version of ILOG’s award-winning Java-based visualization suite that enhances the creation of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) and desktop applications for supervision and monitoring. ILOG JViews 8.1 introduces a new presentation layer for the Eclipse platform and dramatic performance improvements for both desktop and Web applications to enhance the user experience of the most demanding applications.
The new JViews 8.1 product suite includes JViews Diagrammer, JViews Charts, JViews Gantt, JViews Maps, JViews Maps for Defense, and JViews TGO. JViews targets high-end visualization applications, such as large-scale industrial monitoring systems or Web-enabled road traffic information systems. The latest release has introduced new techniques, to satisfy the user experience requirements of the most demanding applications, in particular the combination of richer graphics and faster response time.
Key features of the ILOG JViews 8.1 include ILOG JViews Graph Layout for the Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) -- a new Eclipse-enabled Graph Layout feature that automates the placement of interconnected entities, such as network topologies, business process diagrams, electrical circuits and other types of entity-relation schemas. Developers can now easily choose to use traditional Java or pure Eclipse software components to implement their advanced graphing needs.
The new JViews release brings further performance improvements for RIA and desktop applications. Other key features include:
In order to comply with the real-time requirements of the most-demanding supervision applications, JViews 8.1 brings significant performance enhancements to both loading time and page refreshes for complex dashboards, diagrams and maps:
screen loading time for dashboards, maps and diagrams are up to five times faster compared with the previous release due to new, more compact binary format in JViews Diagrammer and to vector map generalization support in JViews Maps, screen updates and animations are up to 10 times faster due to optimizations in the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) engine, in selection and scrolling mechanisms and in the underlying graphics engine.
The new release also includes a new PERT (Program Evaluation Review Technique) view for JViews Gantt, leveraging JViews Diagrammer to display and analyze tasks involved in projects.
Available immediately, ILOG JViews 8.1 provides tools for
the design of Rich Internet Applications and user displays with strong support
Through its Java, .NET and C++ graphics libraries and components, ILOG provides the industry’s most comprehensive set of graphics tools for creating sophisticated, interactive user displays.
