DataViews 9.8 Delivers Netscape Plug-in and Scalable Fonts for UNIX Customers

DataViews Corporation , the leading developer of tools for building animated GUIs announces a Spring release of DataViews 9.8 for UNIX. Major enhancements in DataViews 9.8 include a Dataviews Plug-in for deploying DataViews applications on an intranet or the Internet . The DataViews Plug-in in DataViews for UNIX reflects Dataviews Corporation’s recognition of the increasing importance to deploy applications on the web. The DataViews Plug-in is a web extension to DataViews that lets you display and animate a DataViews dynamic graphical interface in Netscape Navigator. To deploy a Dataviews application on an intranet or the Internet, one would first embed a DataViews dynamic graphical interface, normally preserved as a DataViews view file, in a standard HTML document. The embedded DataViews view file can be located on a web server or on the client machine running Netscape Navigator.

The DataViews Plug-in allows you to serve data to a DataViews dynamic interface and react to user input across an intranet or the Internet. Once the DataViews Plug-in is installed with Netscape Navigator on the client machine, it acts like a DataViews graphics engine to interpret any DataViews dynamic graphical interface embedded in the HTML document and renders it in Netscape Navigator.

DataViews Corporation believes this new DataViews Plug-in has a great potential and offers many possibilities for DataViews developers to take advantage of the growing importance of the web-based computing model. Also included in the release are demos and examples to demonstrate the use of the DataViews Plug-in and full documentation to describe its usage
