Appery was spun off by Exadel last year to focus on marketing, supporting, and developing the mobile platform. With the addition of its new CEO this week, is poised for explosive growth as the top low-code, secure, cloud-based platform for cross-device applications.

Bimodal IT for the Coming App Explosion


Our Appery subsidiary recently developed an infographic explaining how a two-pronged “bimodal” approach is best for meeting the escalating demands on enterprise IT for more and more apps. Because this is something we are very familiar with, we have often been asked about how to use bimodal IT. As an example, here’s an interview with our CEO, Fima Katz, on this topic.

We’ve also created a slideshow out of the recently published infographic to give people another way of looking at the information in the infographic:

JBoss and Exadel: 8 Years of Working Together


Exadel had developed two well-regarded products in 2006. Exadel Studio was an Eclipse plug-in that converted Eclipse from just an integrated development environment (IDE) to a powerful web app IDE. RichFaces was a JavaServer Faces (JSF) component library developed by Exadel as part of its leadership role in JSF development at the time.

In March 2007, Exadel began a part­ner­ship with Red Hat putting Exadel Studio and RichFaces into open source under JBoss. A key part of this part­ner­ship that con­tinues to this day (eight years later) is Red Hat con­tracting with Exadel for Exadel to pro­vide a de­vel­opment team to work on what is now known as JBoss Developer Studio.

Denis Golovin, in our California office, has been the team lead on the Exadel side of the partnership for this whole time, so we thought we’d ask him a few questions about it.

What Happened to RESTXpress (Our All-purpose REST API Gateway)?

RESTXpress Logo

RESTXpress has been reinvented as a part of the mobile app platform called API Express. RESTXpress provided an easy-to-install REST API gateway that allowed quick “RESTification” of corporate assets — such assets as SQL databases, SOAP services, existing REST services, Salesforce data, and internal workflows.

Now, these features (and more to come) have been rolled into We decided to do this because it made more sense to treat RESTXpress as a mobile app enabler that would be a natural part of as part of a mobile app “suite.” It also enables us to pool resources (developers, support engineers, etc.) to make more efficient use of them. Finally, because of the common platform effort, it enables the development of symbiotic hooks between API Express and the rest of the platform to provide greater value for our users.

As we close the book on RESTXpress, we thought it might be time for some reflection. Alex Antsypov has been with the project from the beginning as the development lead. Recently, I asked him some questions about the past, present, and future of RESTXpress/API Express.

Update on Our Lithuanian Presence

View of Vilnius, Lithuania

Vilnius, Lithuania: old world charm, new world dynamism

Lithuania is where our CEO and Founder, Fima Katz, grew up. In the summer of 2014, he had a homecoming of sorts when he opened an office in the capital city, Vilnius.

For Exadel, Lithuania has the advantage of being in Eastern Europe close to our other development centers while also being integrated with Western Europe by its membership in the European Union and NATO. It’s also a very nice place to live and work.

In December 2014, we announced further expansion plans that include opening additional offices in Kaunas and Klaipeda. So far this year, we have more than 30 employees in Vilnius and five in Klaipeda. Soon, we’ll be opening our Kaunas office! We look forward to further growth in all three development centers.

Read our announcement as reported in Invest Lithuania.
