once:radix is an integrated development environment (IDE) that operates entirely within a Web browser. once:radix supports two methods of connecting to the server. Most interest is focused on its Rich Internet Application (RIA) environment. This comes with a suite of five RIAs that perform specific roles: logging on or off, context-sensitive help, database administration, IDE, and client. In addition, the once:secureserver (oSS) can respond to commands from session-managed external Web servers.
