Extending OpenInsight's O4W Web Development Toolkit with jQuery Plugins


Revelation Software recently released OpenInsight 9.2, which includes the highly-anticipated O4W web development toolkit. O4W generates dynamic Web 2.0 output using JavaScript, HTML, and Ajax. Rather than develop such technology from scratch, Revelation Software decided to leverage the functionality of the widely-accepted jQuery open-source library. By writing O4W to be jQuery compatible, all of the functionality and advantages of jQuery become available to MultiValue developers, while the O4W "wrappings" around jQuery make this functionality accessible and understandable to the MultiValue world.

jQuery has a number of features that make it an ideal choice for a web development framework, but one of the most exciting has to be the active jQuery development community that has generated literally hundreds of "plug-ins" that extend the user interface and functionality of the basic jQuery library. Whatever requirement you may have for your web page, a jQuery plug-in has likely been developed for it. And, since O4W uses jQuery, it is usually a simple matter to make that plug-in available on your O4W generated web page.

See why "print" doesn't mean just print anymore.
