  • User friendly applications are straight forward to implement with Scout’s comprehensive set of user interface components.
  • Completely based on Java/Eclipse, Scout Applications are easy to integrate in most IT environments.

We certify that the public Scout APIs in this release are production quality. As a significant amount of commercial customer applications are based on these APIs we evaluate/communicate changes accordingly (e.g. [2] or [3])


We are are considering to replace Scout Apache Axis Support by JAX-WS Support in the next Scout release. Before we do such a thing we will be discussing this in the scout forum.
