Companion BV next week at Fall Internet World in NYC will release its new Web development tool, Companion 2.0, which facilitates the efficient and systematic management of a web site. Companion provides new methods for code reusability, site management, database publications and resource and link management.
Companion supports Microsoft Access as well as any ODBC-compliant database for use in Web publications. This allows the development of pre-generated database-driven Web pages. By using Companion’s database lookup-wizards, the developer selects fields and records that need to be published.
Companion includes a powerful script editor with features such as Syntax Coloring, Auto Completion, Drag and Drop, extensive HTML help and Companion Script help, a full-featured debug facility and a multi-user development. HTML-wizards help the developer with the creation of tables, framesets, color tags, font tags and forms.
