Elemental Software Releases Drumbeat 2000

Elemental Software Thursday announced the release of Drumbeat 2000, the third major version of its flagship Web development tool. Drumbeat 2000 was created to meet the requirements of developers building sophisticated, data-driven Web applications.

Drumbeat 2000 is billed as the "fastest, easiest way for developers to build Web interfaces for applications and databases." The tool utilizes a visual drag-and-drop interface and features application wizards which reduce the time and skill normally required to develop dynamic Web sites. Drumbeat 2000 enables non-programmers to create visually engaging Web applications that are supported by all of the major Web browsers.

Major enhancements in this release of Drumbeat include an expanded data form wizard, point-and-click interactions support for server-side COM and ASP objects, VBScript support, and additional dynamic application templates.

Drumbeat 2000 generates code automatically for Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP). This allows applications to run on standard Microsoft Web servers. Developers are using Drumbeat to add database functionality to their existing Web sites as well as to develop new data-driven Web applications.

For a limited time, Drumbeat 2000 is available for a special introductory price of $249.
