.NET component and control provider SyncFusion has updated its Essential Studio Enterprise Edition with what the company said is the first complete diagramming package built on the HTML5 platform. The new package gives developers the ability to write line-of-business Web applications with diagrams using the standard-based diagramming engine.
“Many in the software industry view HTML5 as one of the leading APIs of the future,” said Daniel Jebaraj, SyncFusion’s vice president, in a statement. “Microsoft’s .NET API and the ASP.NET MVC framework work well when producing HTML5 markup. We have used them together in a way that leverages the power of each platform to provide the richest diagramming package…natively on Web browsers.”
The company also released a Report Definition Language-based reporting solution that frees users from being locked into a vendor-specific reporting format.
