Skyway Software, the experts in simplifying software delivery, announces today the Skyway Cup 2008 (Skyway Cup) developer contest. The Skyway Cup will showcase how Skyway Community members use Skyway Builder Community Edition (CE), a model-centric JEE development tool, to serve their specific needs in the following categories:
-- Best Rich Internet Application (RIA) -- Best Skyway Builder CE Extension
To demonstrate their proficiency with Skyway Builder CE, eligible developers worldwide will submit entries in the above-referenced categories between June 1, 2008 and July 31, 2008. Winners will be announced on or around December 15, 2008.
The 1st Place prize is $25,000, 2nd Place prize is $7,500 and 3rd Place prize is $2,500. Skyway Software also will award 22 Honorable Mention prizes of $250 each.
According to Sean Walsh, President and CEO of Skyway Software, "Our Skyway Community is thriving and our members are very talented. We truly look forward to their RIAs submittals and Skyway Builder extensions and are excited that all of the contributions will benefit the entire Skyway Community."
With Skyway Builder CE, Java developers get an open source Eclipse-based plugin that offers a seamless blend of coding and modeling for delivering RIAs and Web Services in Spring. Unlike any other modeling tool, Skyway Builder CE provides comprehensive modeling capabilities at four distinct application layers:
-- View/UI Layer with JSP tags on JSP -- Controller Layer with controller/conversations/actions -- Service Layer with service/operations/actions -- Data Layer with data type/data store/named queries
Skyway Builder CE is easy to learn and use, extensible for individual or corporate use, transparent with full access to underlying code, and compatible with the most common open-source Web servers, JEE (EJB3) containers, and databases. A wide variety of Skyway Builder product information and resources are available on the Skyway Community site located at www.skywayperspectives.org.
