First thing? Had a look at their About Morfik page. What did I see?
Morfik is located in Hobart, Australia.
Wow, innovation from that little island just south of Melbourne 🙂
(And we share the same area code! Victorian numbers are +61 3, as is Tasmania)
Anyway, Morfik looks really interesting. The IDE seems to resemble Visual Studio .NET’s IDE. (Or at least it does to me! … To a certain extent)
They’ll be at the Web 2.0 conference next week, with more details about this app of theirs (they are a sponsor).
From their page:
Now that’s really blurring the lines between a desktop app and a web app which “lives” inside of a browser. This “JST” it seems gives Morfik the ability to work with an online/offline mode, akin to what’s offered by a Smart Client.
It says you can use an OO language of your choice to implement the business logic. There’s a bit more in this blog post. Which says the supported OO languages are: C++/C#/Java/Delphi.
This could be interesting. But i’ll reserve my judgement until I’ve seen it in action.
