October 21, 2005 - Qilan and Qilan Lite 3.0 released. Qilan Lite is free. Pricing information for a registered version is on our Sales page. Qilan v3 allows the developer to use open source engines, i.e., Tomcat, to execute webtemplates. One advantage is that these engines run on a variety of operating systems. Web applications developed with version 3 are cross platform, however the Development application is native to OS X. Support for JSP is a major new feature. JSP is a widely accepted technology and supported by thousands of developers and users worldwide. There are many websites devoted to JSP which offer advice and freeware extensions, all of which can easily be incorporated into version 3. The most exciting aspect of version 3 is the ease with which JSP can be created. As with previous versions of Qilan, it is not necessary to learn or use a programming syntax to be productive. Qilan tags are used to generate the necessary JSP automatically.
Our roots are in the developer community, and with version 3, developers can serve a wider array of customers.
