Software company ClearNova said it will open-source a toolkit designed to make Java programmers more productive writing Ajax-style Web applications.
The company next month will release the ThinkCAP JX development framework under the General Public License for non-commercial use. Software vendors which bundle the product for commercial use will be charged $2,000 per developer.
ClearNova sells an integrated development environment (IDE) that is designed to work with the ThinkCAP JX framework. The IDE, called JX Workbench, is available for a $499 yearly subscription.
The source code to the ThinkCAP JX framework will be available from ThinkCAP.org.
