Now it’s done. A Wisej release is available it’s a proper job.
But an important question is still open 🙂

How is Wisej to pronounce? Wise-J? Wise-ej?
What is the story behind the name, if there’s any?

Regards, Andreas

It’s pronounced Wise-j.

The  name originally (two+ years ago) was a stack name, similar to Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) or Linux Apache MySql and Python/PHP/Perl (Lamp).

It was:

W-Windows
I-Internet Information Server
S-Sencha
EJ-ExtJS

Sencha because the first prototype was using Sencha ExtJS widgets. At one point we had both ExtJS and Qooxdoo. Then, luckily, the deal with Sencha didn’t work out and the control set is fully built on qooxdoo. In fact Wisej has been developed in layers and the platform is fully separated from the core.We could use Dojo or other javascript widget libraries.

Since the domain name was registered early on and wisej is a nice name, now it means: Web Integrated Server Environment with JavaScript (Wisej).

Best,

Luca
