If you want some low cost JDK provider where you need the frequent updates as well, you can go ahead for Azul Zing instead of OpenJDK. But if budget is not a concern, I would recommend going for some well known company such as Oracle. Also if you are using Azul for production, make sure to use it for Dev ENV too so as to reproduce issues.

Angular is our framework of choice for a number of reasons. Business data is almost always displayed in a grid format. It makes sense to start with a strong widget that is powerful and fast when building applications. Ignite UI provides a complete toolset of widgets for other frameworks, but Angular is our focus. Ignite UI is helping us deliver a great UX/UI.

  • I would like to see examples with security tokens. It really isn't an Ignite UI issue, but would be helpful.
  • Some of the examples are over-simplified, not how the products would be used in real life.

Oracle was costlier whereas OpenJDK had less frequent updates. Azul was average of both of them, so it was choosen.

We tried DevExpress when we started a project a couple of years ago. At the time, the documentation and ease of use went to Infragistics. When trying new or updated tools, the documentation and samples are everything. Having minimal documentation or documentation that seems to be written for people that already know how to use the product is just plain frustrating. Samples need to be something close to the real-life usage of the product.

  • There is a learning curve, of course, but the comparisons between the projects with and without Ignite UI are worth it.
  • The time savings on development is very real. The built-in functionality is amazing.
  • We are able to focus on features rather than getting the look and feel of our deliverable.
