'SashXB' is an application environment that exposes native functionality to JavaScript. It's useful for Web developers with HTML and JS skills who want to write full-featured native applications, and for experienced programmers who need rapid application development. SashXB programs, called "weblications," are installed and uninstalled either locally or from the Web. SashXB also handles recursive dependency checking and a user-customizable security model. Components can be added easily (and installed as simply as a Weblication) to support any desired native OS functionality.
