Gefion Software Updates InstantOnline Java Servlet Suite

Gefion Software this week announced the release of InstantOnline Technology Preview 1.0, a set of new components and enhancements to its InstantOnline Java Servlet suite.

InstantOnline is a set of Java Servlets that are embedded in Web pages using "servlet" tags. The servlets run on the server and generate dynamic HTML, then are merged with static HTML in the Web page where they are embedded.

InstantOnline provides developers with an alternative to proprietary server-side technologies such as Microsoft's Active Server Pages or Allaire's Cold Fusion. The product is supported on all major platforms and contains components used for accessing information from a database and presenting the data as a table or free-form HTML pattern.

This preview version of InstantOnline Technology includes extended variable handling, debugging features and enhanced error handling. Additionally, a set of new servlets is included for file upload and server-side file manipulation, dynamic forms and sending email.

The shipping release of InstantOnline Basic, version 1.0, initially released on June 2, retails for $249 for 10 concurrent sessions or $499 for an unlimited number of concurrent sessions.
