Kendo UI is an HTML5, jQuery-based framework for building modern web apps. The framework features lots of UI widgets, a rich data visualization framework, an auto-adaptive mobile framework, and all the tools needed for HTML5 app development, such as data source, templates, MVVM, drag-and-drop component, and more.
Kendo UI provides server-side wrappers for ASP.NET, PHP and JSP. Those are classes (ASP.NET and PHP) or XML tags (JSP) which generate the Kendo UI widgets from a server-side code.
Kendo UI comes in several different bundles:
- Kendo UI Core - free open source version of Kendo UI, licensed under Apache 2.0. Includes web, mobile widgets, and framework features.

- Telerik UI for JSP - Kendo UI Professional plus JSP wrappers for the available web and dataviz widgets.
