SiteFusion allows object-oriented PHP applications to operate as OS-native applications through a XULRunner-based thin client. The client connects to the SiteFusion daemon through an ordinary Web server, and applications run in separate continuous processes. Two-way communication is enabled, without the need for additional Web server configurations. The implementation of the XUL framework in a PHP class structure includes an implementation of the Mozilla tree view optimized for very large trees, supporting drag-and-drop, editable cells, and sorting.
Automated Business Logic (ABL) is a transaction logic engine. You define the behavior of your persistent objects declaratively, and the engine will take care of executing and enforcing your logic at commit time. Despite its simplicity, this approach is remarkably powerful, and can replace a large portion of the code in most transactional applications that use Hibernate.
