Alpha Software launches Alpha Five Version 10 with Codeless Ajax technology

WOOHOO! The day has finally come! We officially launched Alpha Five Version 10 today. It might not be news to you, since you've been reading about it here for so long, but it is news to the rest of the world.

Check out the official press release making the announcement. For members of the media, a full press kit is available at

Alpha Software Launches Alpha Five Version 10 with Codeless Ajax Technology

Be amazed at how fast you can build Ajax database apps that perform like desktop apps,
and run entirely in the cloud

BURLINGTON, Mass. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Every day, companies announce new products and call them revolutionary, breakthrough, innovative, and game changing. It’s not often that a new product actually lives up to that kind of billing. Today is one of those days, with the official launch of Alpha Five Version 10, from Alpha Software. Featuring the company’s patent-pending “Codeless Ajax™” technology, Alpha Five V10 is the first programming tool that allows developers to visually build rich Internet database applications powered by Ajax—without having to write one line of code.

That said, developers who like to get their hands dirty can work swiftly using Alpha’s Codeless Ajax™, then optionally craft custom code using popular SQL dialects, JavaScript, REST Services, and Xbasic. Developers can also plug in open source or their own JavaScript code, components, and frameworks to extend the development platform in any way they need. Best of all, the resulting applications support every major SQL database, including the newest: Microsoft SQL Azure databases residing in the Microsoft cloud.

“Alpha Five Version 10 with Codeless Ajax™ is like having an entire development team at your fingertips,” says Richard Rabins, Co-Chairman of Alpha Software. “Just one developer can produce the output of five to 10 coders with Codeless Ajax™. The calculus is simple. If you’re a consultant or ISV, you produce more solutions in less time. If you’re a corporate developer, you solve more business problems faster, and slash your budget for custom application development. There’s no faster way to design and build contemporary Web applications.”

Over 70 New Features Help Developers Do More in Less Time

Alpha Five Version 10 is the most significant upgrade in the platform’s 20-year history, with over 70 new features spanning Web development, desktop development, the Xbasic language, Xdialog, and the Alpha Application Server. Key among all the new features is Alpha’s Codeless Ajax™ technology, Alpha’s Core JavaScript Library, and the Alpha AjaxForm Framework. Specifically:

Borland’s Turbo Pascal revolutionized programming in the 1980s with the first RAD IDE. Microsoft’s Visual Basic raised the bar in the 1990s, with the first visual RAD IDE for event-driven applications. Now Alpha Five Version 10 transforms programming again, with an Ajax-centered RAD IDE perfectly suited for today’s developer. Try it for yourself, and you’ll agree it deserves to be called “revolutionary, breakthrough, innovative, and game changing.”
