Use Windows Forms to develop Web applications!
Achieve operability and response of C/S systems on HTTP.

Visual WAO (Web Adaptable Object) is a new technology that enables the development of Web applications that run on HTTP, by means of a development approach based on .NET using conventional Windows Forms. Utilize your development skill of C# or VB.NET to develop Web applications.

Features of Visual WAO

Web system that doesn’t use a browser

Usually, browsers are used in Web systems for exchanging information between a client and the application server in the Internet. In the Visual WAO architecture, however, browsers are not used. Instead of a browser, the Visual WAO DLL works as an I/F module to achieve the communication of binary files in the HTTP environment, thereby providing efficient and speedy response processing, and achieving the response of C/S systems in HTTP.

How Visual WAO works

Windows Forms applications work natively in HTTP

The developer uses Windows Forms in Visual Studio to develop the application by dividing up projects between the client side and the application server side. By placing a Visual WAO DLL in these projects on the client side and on the application server side, and adding a few lines of functions to the coding, it will work in HTTP as a synchronized Web application when executed. The Visual WAO DLLs can be easily and automatically generated using the Visual WAO Development Tool, which is offered free of charge. Connections or events from the client can be received and the processing results can be returned to the client, by means of the WAO Service, which is contained in the Visual WAO DLL placed on the application server side. For this reason, there is no need for Web servers (IIS), which are necessary in ordinary Web systems.
