2. Water supports a flexible architecture
However, Water is a single language that may be used in every tier. This is possible because the Water Runtime can run in every tier, including a browser, web server, application server, email server, and database.
Water interfaces to existing systems such as J2EE, relational databases, legacy systems, file system, email, and web pages. Using a common language across every tier dramatically simplifies the construction of new Web services and programs.
From the developer's perspective, Water provides a consistent method to work with presentation, logic, and data in every tier. A function call is the same in every tier. Local function calls look like remote function calls over HTTP. A function call from a web form to a Water server has the same structure as a function call between two servers. A mail message can also act as a function call.
The business logic runs where it makes the most sense for the business. In other platforms, the technology constrains the deployment architecture because each technology only works within a single tier. Water removes these restrictions and opens up many new possibilities to build and deploy Web services and programs quickly and easily.
