ActiveWidgets - Development too slow?
But that vision is disappearing fast. Other toolkits, which were not better than ActiveWidgets in the beginning have not only overcome all their shortcomings but have moved on to create better abstractions in code.
[edit: links to the competing toolkits deleted (Alex)]
My COMPLAINT is that while ActiveWidgets had a competitive edge over both these libraries, its losing it rapidly by its slow development pace. <b>How long ActiveWidgets Developers (including me) have to put up with incomplete documentation, incomplete or missing GUI Widgets (Tree, TreeGrid, Calendar, Progress etc...) and an exorbitant price tag?</b>
If you think that I'm evaluating ActiveWidgets harshly, then just check out the above two libraries to understand what the competition is like. And if noone copes up with these shortcomings now, it would only mean a furthur eroding of ActiveWidgets community when developers switch to other tookits.
