NetObjects Fusion 3.0 Ships Six Weeks Early

NetObjects, Inc. today announced the NetObjects Fusion ProPack, a suite of products and components that lets developers plug advanced technologies into NetObjects Fusion 3.0 to facilitate the creation of e-business Web sites.

The NetObjects Fusion ProPack will be available in May, 1998. NetObjects also announced that NetObjects Fusion 3.0 is shipping today.

The NetObjects Fusion ProPack is the first suite of developer tools
especially designed to advance the creation of e-business Web sites and
provides powerful solutions to address three critical areas of e-business
functionality: dynamic data publishing, Java programming and
client-and-server-side scripting.

The ProPack, a collection of four sets of components and three products
complementary to NetObjects Fusion, includes:

  • Four sets of NetObjects Fusion components (NFXs) that enable
    site-builders to easily add dynamic data, commercial transactions, and other
    application functionality by integrating sites built with NetObjects Fusion
    into leading application server platforms including Allaire ColdFusion, Lotus
    Domino, Netscape Livewire, and Microsoft Active Server Pages.
  • NetObjects ScriptBuilder 2.0, a script editor for the Web that combines
    rich development tools with a visual point-and-click environment to enable
    rapid creation of both client and server-side scripts. Scripts created in
    NetObjects Scriptbuilder can be very easily integrated into NetObjects
    Fusion 3.0 to create dynamic Web sites.
  • IBM Visual Age for Java (Professional Edition), a sophisticated Java
    development environment that also enables the creation of NetObjects Fusion
    components–Java-encapsulated mini-applications that can be seamlessly
    integrated into NetObjects Fusion. VisualAge for Java has the ability to
    handle large-scale Java development requiring high security, client- and
    server-side functionality.
  • Lotus BeanMachine 1.1, a simple yet powerful tool that enables the
    creation of Java applets using Java Beans and also generates NetObjects
    Fusion Components.

The NetObjects Fusion ProPack will be available for an estimated street
price of $149. Registered users of NetObjects Fusion and new NetObjects
Fusion 3.0 customers can purchase the ProPack for $99.
