  • What is Autumn Leaf's preferred development platform?

    Autumn Leaf find development in Java to be powerful and flexible and is generally the preferred development platform. This situation however depends on the customer situation, with a key factor being sustainability - can the developed product be supported within the skills and environment it is provided and is it appropriate to the existing infrastructure. From there anything Javascript, HTML, LotusScript, or using open source frameworks is enjoyed.
