[Press Release] Windows apps reach a new level with GUI Virtualization and Web Integration: Meet Thinfinity VirtualUI

The new Thinfinity® VirtualUI™ platform helps developers to effortlessly take to the web Windows applications developed with .Net, Delphi, Visual C++ and the like.

For Immediate Release

WILMINGTON, DE, December 16, 2014—Cybele Software, Inc. announced today the release of Thinfinity VirtualUI, a one-of-a-kind development solution offering both instant GUI remoting and full web integration for Windows apps.

Thinfinity VirtualUI  is aimed at developers who are looking for reusing their existing code base and convert their applications to muti-user, multi-instance web apps.

When it comes to GUI Virtualization, Thinfinity® VirtualUI™ offers developers an effortless solution to take their applications to the web, converting them in dual-platform Windows/HTML5 apps. These applications retain their standard Windows environment behavior and, additionally, can be hosted on a Thinfinity VirtualUI environment to be remotely accessed from any modern web browser in a multi-user, multi-instance manner.

Drawing on the expertise and innovation from Cybele’s Development team, Thinfinity® VirtualUI™ also makes full web integration of desktop applications possible.  It facilitates two-way integration between the Windows-based applications and web resources by blending them with the web-side environment. Thinfinity® VirtualUI™ allows Win32/64 apps to be reshaped into a completely tailor-made ones, combining them with available web and multimedia resources.

Thinfinity® VirtualUI™ relies on Javascript Remote Objects (jsRO), a brand new technology conceived by Cybele Software that enables the creation of remotable server objects, mirrored to the web as native Javascript objects. sRO provides full two-way data-binding and remote procedure calls using an easy and straight-forward methodology -making the windows and web integration as easy as pie!

“Innovation is at the core of everything we do, and one way that we uphold this commitment is by constantly evolving and designing new solutions to developers’ changing needs,” said Gustavo Ricardi, Cybele Software, Inc. CEO.

 Development Lab: web environment that lets developers see, test and interact with the jsRO objects created in their application.

 Dual-platform – Windows/Web: applications can keep their standard desktop environment behavior, or be accessed remotely from any HTML5-compliant Web browser, in a multi-user, multi-instance fashion

 Cross-browser and Cross-OS: works with any HTML5-compliant Web browser, automatically using HTTPS protocol on Android native browsers, Microsoft IE9, and others that still lack support for the WebSocket standard protocol

  1. There used to be a special edition for FireMonkey. Could you please elaborate on what happened? Is performance with VCL the same as with FM now?

  2. I am a bit confused. I asked a sincere question about the relations between different products. I can’t find the answer elsewhere on the site, but to me it could be somewhat crucial. Don’t you bother to inform about your product? Do you expect us to take a product that promises the best of all worlds with “just a line of code” seriously, if you aren’t prepared to give answers?

  3. Hi Anders, please forgive the delay on our response. I overlooked your comment and I thank you for the headsup you sent me today.

    Regarding your inquiry, our management decided to discontinue the edition that worked strictly with Firemonkey (aka WebFMX), since the new Thinfinity VirtualUI also covers Delphi apps (and it also includes extra features for deep integration).

    The promise we make, about a ” single line of code ” to take your Windows-based app to the web is 100% real.

    Thinfinity VirtualUI also offers other advances features that permit a complete integration and thus, require more work from the developers.

    However, you can web-enable your app with virtually non effort.

  5. Dear Satq, our tech team sent you a response by email to the email address you provided.
    Thinfinity VirtualUI server can only run on Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 due to technical reasons related to the Desktop Windows Manager. The features we need are only available when in an interactive session in Windows 7.
