Open Web Studio is not bound to any specific platform. DotNetNuke is where we continue to spend a great deal of time and energy, we cannot forget that there are other solutions on the market that employ .Net. Directly following this release we will begin pushing out additional platform providers that support Sharepoint and a few other popular CMS platforms. This means an application built in any OWS platform will be interoperable with the other. You can build apps for both Sharepoint and DNN without changing anything in your code configurations
Packages and Skin Controls
Just like you can create modules and solutions with Open Web Studio, you can also utilize these as Skin elements and even full blown PA modules and distribute these because of the OWS portability. Build your solutions and use them on multiple portals simply by packaging your solution and installing the OWS engine and package on the site.
OWS would not have the level of versatility possible if it wasn't so extendable. While out of the box you can do pretty much anything you could imagine, we also took into consideration times when you as the developer come up with something that "we" couldn't imagine. Out of the box we provide samples of creating your own syntax, formats and runtime tasks. Extensions are easy to create and are linked to the runtime via a standard configuration file.
