New Webinar Series for the Platform


As 2016 rolls in, we continue to be amazed at the growth in our subsidiary Appery’s mobile app platform. An important part of the support for the platform is a robust webinar program. Continuing into the new year under full steam, the Appery team has already put together six new webinars. The first two cover the most used frameworks on the platform. The next webinar delves into the service for making enterprise assets like SQL databases into REST services. (This service, API Express, was formerly the standalone Exadel RESTXpress.) The last three webinars cover different back-end services offered on the platform that you can use in your apps.

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 view questions about it.

Corporate boardroom

Our mobile app platform has come into it’s own as the premier choice for rapid cost-effective enterprise mobility. While the platform is still popular as a tool for building apps, when the full platform—including all it’s back-end services—is fully engaged, many companies are reaping incredible benefits. We’ve crafted a special trial offer for qualified enterprises, so they can see first-hand the advantage many leading companies are already enjoying.

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.
