As more and more heterogeneous devices are used to browse the web, we are witnessing an architectural shift in application architecture. Separating the data interface from the user interface allows you to have multiple front ends and can give third parties the opportunity to build their own app on top of your API. REST exposes the data on one side while Ajax allows the browser to rewrite the page on the fly. With HTML5 features, the browser is even more empowered and server-side native code is less and less relevant.
Using the eXo Platform 3 IDE makes it very easy to leverage this architecture. The deployment mechanism of your REST Services is greatly simplified and you can rely on all the existing eXo Services. Developers can now focus on the front end and improve the end-user experience. The IDE opens-up new prospects for eXo developers that we hope they will explore.
