Posted by Scott Klement on Aug 9, 2013 11:39:54 AM

I was given the interesting assignment of changing Profound UI so that any runtime messages would be available in any language chosen by the customer. I can definitely see why. Prior to this project, most of the messages that the product provided were in English, which is clearly not suitable for non-English speakers.

Profound UI is a comprehensive Web 2.0 user interface framework. It has features similar to other popular JavaScript frameworks you may have heard about, such as jQuery, ExtJS, or Dojo. However, unlike most other JavaScript frameworks, Profound UI is designed to be driven by a server-side language, such as RPG, rather than client-side JavaScript. This way, RPG developers can be productive right away in creating functional Web 2.0 applications. They can do most tasks using just RPG code, while HTML, JavaScript, and CSS would only be required for advanced functionality.
