The Xito platform provides tools to create better Rich Internet Applications in the Java.(WhitePaper) This includes user interface components and and a bootstrap module to assist in downloading application content.
The Xito platform has been created to address client deployment issues and develop a rich Java client experience for end users. The platform is comprised of modular services that work together to produce a network centric architecture with an easy to use user interface integrated with the native host operating system.
The Xito Platform will address the core issues of existing Java client technology, namely: large memory and performance requirements, a poor user interface to manage Java applications, and complex security model that is not understood by end users.
The Platform will also address the initial problems with Java client software which hindered Java adoption for client applications in the beginning. The main approach to addressing these issues are: Create very user friendly user interfaces for the environment, create applications that take advantage of the network and Java's unique capabilities, and create a platform that third-party developers are excited to write for, creating a broad market for network deployed Java applications.
The following chart provides an example of the performance benefits when using Xito to launch several applications.
