Macromedia Ships Generator On Solaris
Page 1 of 1
Macromedia is shipping Generator, its dynamic graphics server, for the Sun Solaris operating environment.
Generator works with Netscape's Enterprise or the Apache Web server to deliver dynamic graphics on-the-fly. It enables frequently updated data, such as headlines, ad banners, maps, calendars, charts, etc. - to be edited with new content and served quickly.
"Macromedia Generator and the robust Sun Solaris operating environment enable Sun enterprise customers to deliver high-volume, media-centric Web sites for e-commerce and real-time news and information services," said Bill Correll, group manager for digital media markets, Sun Microsystems. "By working with Macromedia, we're providing users with a more compelling and personalized online experience with fast, reliable performance."
Macromedia Generator works rather like the "mail merge" function in a word processing system, separating design and content in a similar way. It is ideal for web sites that provide personalized or frequently changing graphical content.
