Scout Framework Features

Multi Device Support

Scout clients run on the desktop, on tablets and mobile devices.

A single code base is used to support the different devices. Default device transformations rules help you to keep device specific code to a minimum.

Java Application Model

Scout applications are written against a plain Java application model.

This modeling approach keeps your business code clean and increases long term maintainability.

HTML5 Rendering

The rendering of Scout applications relies on HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript.

Styling and theming your Scout application is both simple and powerful. You may use global or component specific options to tune the look and feel of your application.

Modular Applications

Scout applications are modularized into layers and slices.

Depending on a common core, you may implement individual modules for different business aspects.
