What is Mendix?

It might sound like the best thing since sliced bread, ‘developing super fast’ and ‘in a way that closes the gap between Business and IT’.
But what is Mendix exactly?

Short answer: Mendix is a low-code application development platform (LCAP) to develop business applications for the enterprise.
Simply said, it’s a toolbox full of rocket-science, super-powered application components that make up high performing, safe and beautiful applications for your desktop, tablet and mobile.

Traditional software development (like in Java, C#, etc.) involves programming, the art of writing code that a computer can read and execute. That’s the thing, the code is meant as instructions for computers. You need a degree in Computer Sciences or extensive experience with programming to write an application that performs well, keeps your data safe and is user friendly. Most of the time, your business people don’t have this background nor experience and would not understand any of the code that the developer has written, creating barriers between Business and IT.

Low-code application development uses smart techniques like visual development methods (modelling instead of programming), drag-and-drop interfaces, pre-built components and reusable templates to quickly create the same applications, but with less code. This benefits both people from the Business side of things (they can interpret functionality and proactively provide input as part of the development team) as well as the IT side of things (Mendix accelerates development, also for experienced developers!).

Example of programming in Java vs. modelling in Mendix: Retrieve all Orders for Account ‘123’


public class Order {
    private Long orderNr;
    private Long account;
    public Long getOrderNr() {
       return orderNr;
    public void setOrderNr(Long orderNr) {
       this.orderNr = orderNr;
    public Long getAccount() {
       return account;
    public void setAccount(Long account) {
       this.account = account;
public class Account {
    private Long accountNr;
    private String accountName;
    public Long getAccountNr() {
       return accountNr;
    public void setAccountNr(Long accountNr) {
       this.accountNr = accountNr;
    public String getAccountName() {
       return accountName;
    public void setAccountName(String accountName) {
       this.accountName = accountName;

public interface OrderRepository extends JpaRepository<Order, Long> {
    List<Order> findByAccount(long accountNr);

public class Application {
    public static void main(String[] args) {


1. Add Account and Order to your domain model with a few clicks of your mouse

2. The rounded blue square ‘Retrieve list of order from database’ does the same as the code in the Java snippet
