Infoscape's Fresco 3.0 Now Available

Infoscape, Inc. today announced the availability of Fresco 3.0, the company's Java-based tool for developing intranet-based business applications.

Infoscape said Fresco 3.0 employs three new Wizards and a live test mode that are designed to enable developers with even minimal Java experience to build intranet database applications.

The San Francisco-based company is targeting the tool at department managers that want to enhance the efficiency of their operations by deploying a corporate intranet to manage business functions like customer service, sales, and human resources operations.

With Version 3.0, Infoscape said the Fresco Designer, Fresco Server, and Fresco Frameworks components have all been upgraded to feature new functionality.

Fresco 3.0 includes:

  • An application wizard
  • Live test mode
  • Database stored procedures and database views support
  • Application publishing enhancements
  • Custom object wizard
  • Custom component palettes
  • Informix RDBMS adapter
  • Charting components
  • Developer productivity

"Our customers want to use intranet applications to track and manage their company's operations more effectively," said Richard French, CEO of Infoscape. "Knowledge workers need to coordinate their activities with each other while managers track progress and set priorities from their desktops. Fresco makes these highly customized intranet tracking applications possible."

Fresco 3.0 pricing, which is based on the customer's deployment environment, is available immediately starting at $10,000. A single-user development license is available for $1,000.
