One Model for Web and Windows Applications

One of the key concepts of USoft is transparent deployment. Applications are derived from a business model in the repository and changing the target platform of the application does not imply that you have to change anything in the application. It is the business rules that define the application, not the other way around. This same principle underlies our web technology. Web Designer is USoft's development environment for making web applications, and is a new view to our existing repository environment, tailored to be used as a functional development environment.

As a result, the same repository model can become a Windows and a Web application, thus avoiding duplication of business rules. In addition to creating windows you can generate Web pages from the business model, which can be painted in Web Designer. The generated web pages communicate with the same Rules Engine, safeguarding the same business rules.
