    Hi;
    Is it possible that other tools like Kendo to use Kendo's components or can Kendo use other tools' components and be able to do data binding?
    Is there such a thing as a "common", databinding framework in JS or perhaps in jQuery that every vendor can follow to ensure components can be used among multiple tools?

    Thanks!

    Hi Ben-

    There is not yet a "common" data binding framework or data source in jQuery, but there is some work being done in different places on jQuery plug-ins for some of these things. We'll clearly stay tightly plugged-in to these external efforts and carefully measure their progress to make sure we're providing support for the best-of-the-best in Kendo UI.

    In general, though, Kendo UI is modular. You can use pieces of Kendo UI and not use others. In many cases, you can use other JavaScript tools with Kendo, and vice versa. The experience (as a developer) might not be as rich or seamless (more glue code might be required), but ultimately most JavaScript components are speaking the same language.

    We'll try to continue to provide more examples of this where it makes sense. For now, I'd encourage you to share specific examples where you're trying to integrate so we can better understand your goals and challenges.

    Thanks Todd for the reply;

    As I'm trying to broaden my view and scope of JS and it's penetration and reach, I see the platform being stretched in many direction by different vendors, in forms of plugins, widgets and etc.
    However, my view is to use one product as a "Base" and be able to glue and emerge other sub-components into it.

    As of this point, I'm just exploring different sub-components. We are again at a start of a new evolution in technology. :-)
