SiteFusion 5.4.0

A web application development client-server framework
SiteFusion is a web application development client-server framework that, unlike most web application frameworks, uses a thin XUL client (the same technology Mozilla Firefox is based on). This means that SiteFusion applications are platform-independent, look and behave like native system applications, and are not restricted by browser security to access the local filesystem and execute programs.
SiteFusion is a server-based development platform in which applications are written in pure object-oriented PHP. Clients connect to the SiteFusion daemon through a regular webserver, allowing access even from within very restricted network environments. When logged in, the application remains a separate process on the server. Contrary to regular web applications, a SiteFusion application has a two-way connection with the client, allowing the server process to initiate action on the client side as well as the traditional other way around. This is achieved through a technique called long polling and does not require additional webserver configuration.
Because the Mozilla XUL framework has been completely captured within a PHP class structure, the construction of complex user interfaces requires a minimal amount of code, allowing developers to quickly produce professional applications. This abstraction layer eliminates the division between client and server, keeping both in constant synchrony while maintaining speed and responsiveness. With even the JavaScript libraries being server-based, the client software consists of a mere 200 lines of code, and even dramatic updates to a SiteFusion server will usually not require a client update.
