With Thinfinity VirtualUI, any developer can create dual-platform applications (Windows/HTML5) by adding only one line of code to their existing projects built in .Net, Delphi, Visual C++, Virtual Basic or others.

Thinfinity VirtualU allows these applications to be run normally on a Windows environment, or installed in a Thinfinity VirtualUI Server environment and be accessed remotely from any HTML5-compliant Web browser.

What about jsRO?

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.

jsRO provides full two-way data-binding and remote procedure calls using an easy and straight-forward methodology -making the integration of Windows desktop and web access as easy as pie!
