Features of the Scout Framework

Multi-Device Support

Scout client applications run imultaneously on the desktop, in the browser, and on mobile devices.

Implemented against an abstract component model, Scout applications support all devices based on the same Java source code.

Client Server Architecture

The Scout framework covers a complete client server architecture.

Business rules are implemented on the server, and the client takes care of the user interaction.

This separation supports a clean technical layering.

Modular Applications

Scout allows to modularize large enterprise applications into separate modules.

Around a common core, individual modules implement different business aspects such as customers, accounts, or reporting.

Such modules can be implemented by specific teams and may even have individual release cycles.

Tooling Support

With the Scout SDK, a strong tooling support is available for building Scout applications.

The Scout SDK allows for easy navigation covering both client and server components.

And thanks to the many wizards, beginners quickly take off with Scout.

100% Java/Eclipse

Scout is fully based on Java/Eclipse standards.

This allows Java developers to take full advantage of their existing experience and know-how.
