<h1>Why you will love Eclipse Scout</h1>
<p>Eclipse Scout is an open-source framework, developed by <a href="https://www.bsi-software.com/en" target="_blank">BSI Software</a>
and hosted by the <a href="https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eclipse_Foundation" target="_blank">Eclipse Foundation</a>. Eclipse Scout makes building
great business applications easy. Here are your benefits at a glance:</p>

<p>Eclipse Scout provides out-of-the-box solutions for your daily practice as a software engineer.
Scout applications are built on an abstract 'model', a straight concept that frees you from dealing
with tedious technical details and lets you focus on the business logic instead. Based on that model,
Scout renders a modern, responsive UI which works on any device.</p>
<p>Eclipse Scout provides tools for all tiers, from database to UI. The following sections will show
you the tools you get when programming in Scout. In case you miss something: Scout is also extensible.
Simply add your favorite Java or JavaScript libraries.</p>

<p>You don't have to be a UI expert, if you want to create a beautiful user interface with Scout.
You just create a model of your application and Scout renders that model, using its modern, robust
widget library. Check our <a href="./#demo-apps">Demo apps</a> to see Scout widgets in action. And
if you are an expert: extend Scout with your favorite custom widget.</p>
<p>Widgets highlights:
<ul>
<li>Powerful table</li>
<li>Versatile tree</li>
<li>Auto complete field</li>
<li>Charts</li>

<p>Eclipse Scout applications are web applications with or without a back-end server.
Scout applications are built with modern, standard tools: The Java
part is built with Maven, JavaScript is built with npm and Webpack.</p>
<p>At runtime, Scout relies on modern Java VMs and, for the front-end part,
on HTML5, EcmaScript 6+ and CSS/LESS.</p>
<p>Scout Java applications are deployed to standard Java EE web application
servers like Jetty, Tomcat, Glassfish, etc.</p>

<p>Applications built with Eclipse Scout come with a responsive user interface
that adapts to any device. You don't need specific UI know-how to build a
responsive application that runs on desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones -
Scout does that for you and your users.</p>
<p>In addition to providing a responsive user interface, Scout also makes sure the
widgets are touch-capable. This means they are large enough to be tapped with a finger.
Plus, they don’t depend on any pointing device feature, such as the right mouse button
or a hover state. Still, they may use these features to improve the user experience on a regular
desktop device.</p>

<p>System and software architecture is the foundation for building stable and reliable business
applications for hundreds or thousands of concurrent users. Eclipse Scout has done that for you
already. The Scout architecture has been tried and tested in many successful enterprise business
applications.</p>
<p>Classic Scout applications come with a back-end server, a UI server and a JavaScript client running
in the browser. Eclipse Scout provides concepts, libraries and APIs for each tier.</p>

Eclipse Scout has the tools you need as a software developer.
To give you an idea of what's inside Scout's toolbox:
<ul>
<li>Dependency management</li>
<li>Transaction handling</li>
<li>Authorization and authentication</li>
<li>Job management and scheduling</li>
<li>Input validation and error handling</li>
<li>Provider and client for REST and web-services</li>
<li>Localization and internationalization (i18n)</li>
<li>Client notifications (push)</li>
<li>IDE support for Eclipse and IntelliJ</li>

<p>Eclipse Scout comes in two flavors.</p>
<p>With the <em>Scout Classic</em> flavor you develop primarily in Java. Based on your Scout model,
the UI server creates a user interface which runs in the browser. You may extend the UI by adding
custom widgets or tweak existing widgets by writing a bit of HTML5 and JavaScript code.</p>
<p>With the <em>Scout JS</em> flavor you develop primarily in JavaScript. You use the same model and
concepts as a Java Scout programmer, but the frontend is written in JavaScript. That type
of application may have no backend at all or a backend with a Scout server providing REST methods
or a completely different backend written in PHP, .NET, node.js, etc.
