IMACINATION SOFTWARE ANNOUNCES GROUNDBREAKING WEB APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT LANGUAGE
Representatives from Imacination will be available for demonstrations during JavaOne in San Francisco beginning Monday, March 25 at the Apple Computer Pavilion.
March 25, 2002 -- Imacination Software, publishers of acclaimed Ch-Ching! Instant E-commerce software, today announced the impending release and availability of their web application development software, jTalk, demonstrating the technology at Sun Microsystems Java Developer Conference, JavaOne.
jTalk is a JSP custom tag library that enables users to quickly develop and build web applications. jTalk provides an easy to use, HTML-like, XML syntax that leverages the power of any Java Application Server by providing math and string functions, logic and expression parsing, database and e-mail integration, as well as server control.
jTalk answers the challenges developers and designers are faced with when building dynamic web applications, without requiring extensive knowledge of Java or any other web development language.
Customers are agnostic of who is behind the web site, they expect no less of an experience from a small business than of a Fortune 100 corporation," comments Dennis Martinez of Peterman Research Group. "Small and medium businesses are challenged to develop such applications using the limited resources and skills they have."
"jTalk is a remarkable achievement," remarks Imacination Product Development Manager, Allon Bendavid. "The Internet as a whole may have leveled the playing field for small and large businesses alike to access the global market, but leaves a gaping whole for building applications to serve customers. jTalk fills that void."
The Missing Link
Developers will immediately grasp the value of using jTalk as the foundation for their web applications as jTalk's Model-View-Controller architecture solidifies collaboration between developers by separating the presentation or design layer from the business logic.
The MVC architecture enables designers and developers to work simultaneously and independently of each other, making changes without disrupting the usability of the web application. jTalk is the "missing link" between development and design at the junction of the Java Application Server.
Unlike competitive technologies, jTalk is founded solely upon the definitive standards for web applications integrating with Java Application Servers and SQL Database Servers.
Built from the ground up around the SQL database standard, database communication is inherent and simply unparalleled. An included, jTalk web-based Database Manager allows users to build pooled database connections, a task otherwise daunting even to seasoned programmers, view and modify database schema design and quickly access their data through and interactive or advanced database query wizard.
jTalk's XML syntax is scriptable in any development environment including Macromedia Dreamweaver UltraDev and Adobe GoLive. Developers no longer need to be isolated by proprietary technologies to benefit from ease of use.
Pricing, Availability, and Requirements
jTalk is immediately available for purchase for a license fee of $999 per production server until its final release at $1299. Documentation, product information and data sheets and links to working applications built upon the jTalk platform can be viewed at http://www.imacination.com/jTalk/.
