I have seen the future of web applications and it is ….

Jotspot . It’s not that it is very much a Web 2.0 company. It’s more that it draws together a lot of previous ideas into one easy to use package.

  • It’s easy to use – if you can use Microsoft Office , you can use JotSpot
  • It’s easy to develop – ‘Power Users’ not developers can do it (the sort that come up with fancy Excel Spreadsheets).
  • It’s web based, is available everywhere and uses a very fluid Ajax interface
  • It can be easily extended , so all the people currently playing around with PHP and websites can get up and running more quickly.
  • It’s free, with a more powerful commercial version

Other ‘out of the box’ features include being able to import Excel Spreadsheets and have them available as online applications. It also comes with ready build applications such as CRM , Project Management Tools, Colloboration Tools etc

Jotspot is exactly the sort of ‘Component based Architcture’ that Java Developers have been aiming towards. It ties the portability of Java, the ease of development of Visual Basic and the promise of Lotus Notes. It also has a full set of easy to use XML API’s , so a wave a client applications tied into a Jotspot server is not far off.
