Clarity Consulting Simplifies Web 2.0 Development With New Windows Live Controls for Microsoft

Combined with their Facebook Developer Toolkit for Microsoft, Clarity seeks to accelerate development of media-rich, social netw

CHICAGO, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarity Consulting Inc. today announced the availability of a new Windows Live control set for Microsoft. The combination of tools will help make it faster and easier for developers to start building applications on the Windows Live platform.

Debuted at Microsoft's DevConnections event, the set of reusable controls is part of the Windows Live Toolkit for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 supporting ASP.NET Server Controls (including Contacts, Silverlight streaming media, ID authentication and Login View) as well as Visual Studio Project Template (including ASP.NET Windows Live website).

In addition to the new Windows Live controls, Clarity also built Microsoft's Facebook Developer Toolkit, which allows developers to quickly build Facebook applications using Microsoft tools. These combined efforts support Clarity's overall goal of making it easier and more rewarding for developers to drive Web 2.0 innovation through the creation of compelling, revenue-generating applications.

According to Gartner, Inc. -- one of the world's leading analyst firms -- while most business can readily add specific Web 2.0 technologies to their products and platforms, they find it much more challenging to add the social dimension. "At Clarity, we believe this is where developers can take a lead," said Jon Rauschenberger, Chief Technology Officer, Clarity Consulting. "By creating applications that help balance technology and social attributes while driving innovation, developers can make it simpler for businesses to get the most from their Web 2.0 strategies."

Developers using the new Windows Live controls will be able to add Windows Live authentication to their websites with minimal coding and no additional cost. In addition, they can embed streaming media into their web pages without writing more code. Control specifics and key benefits include:

-- Contacts control -- allows users to include Windows Live Contacts in their web pages, raise client and server events for sign-in/sign-out, data transfer activities and increase word of mouth viral traffic for their websites. -- Silverlight StreamingMedia control -- gives users the ability to play their videos from their Silverlight Streaming account, specify account credentials and choose the video they want to display on their web page. -- ID Authentication control -- provides for quick Windows Live ID authentication provisioning for applications. Users drag and drop the control on their web page, provision the application ID and compile/run the project. By using the ID Authentication control, developers can quickly add the Windows Live authentication experience to their web site. -- IDLoginView control -- extends the functionality of ASP.NET Login View control by adding support for Windows Live ID authentication, providing a single sign on experience for web site users, and adding new templates for providing richness in the developers website.
