- Electronic publishing system
Company: EBT (Providence, RI)
Telephone: (401) 421-9550
Platforms: Windows 95, Windows NT, Windows 3.1, Sun SPARC Solaris,
Description: Electronic publishing system gives publishers a solution for delivering large, media-rich electronic documents, in virtually any language, via CD-ROM, LAN & WWW, to end-users on major computing platforms. 32-bit architecture. Enhancements in graphics support, internationalization, user interface, viewing and printing capabilities, compression technology, and operating system support. Four primary components: an electronic publishing system that accepts SGML and major word processing formats; a cross platform CD/LAN browser for viewing, searching, and navigating electronic content; a cross platform software developers kit for creating customized applications; and a DynaWeb server for delivering DynaText content to any Web browser. Accepts large volumes of structured text and other source media, producing "electronic books" for digital delivery. Gives end-users hypertext navigation, audio/video, and powerful searching capabilities, such as fulltext, wildcard, Boolean, proximity, context, and complex searching.
InterStream JaDE 1.0
- Java Dialog Editor
Company: InterStream, Inc. (Austin, TX)
Telephone: (512) 434-3477
Fax: (512) 434-3477
Description: This Java dialog editor, written entirely in Java, is for Java developers on all platforms. It is used to create user interface classes for Java applets and applications. By providing a WYSIWYG method of laying out components within a dialog, programmers can concentrate on the underlying logic behind the controls, rather than the code needed to position them correctly. The application is packaged as three components -- a Panel Editor, Control Palette, and Code Editor. From within JaDE, the user can define controls, position them within the panel, and attach code to particular controls and events without having to deal with the mechanics of event handling. The usable output from the application is Java source code for a class which, when instantiated, will produce the desired user interface. Panel Editor: dialogs make use of Java's GridBag layout manager to position controls created with the Control Palette. The Panel Editor creates and manipulates rows and cells, and position controls to create a new dialog. It also previews the completed dialog before generating source code. Control Palette: creates and modifies many different types of controls to use in the Panel Editor, and sets various properties, including size, text, alignment, border and expansion for each control. Code Editor: attaches Java code to events for controls, to edit additional methods and instance variables to be included in the output class, code to execute when the panel is first created, but before it is displayed, code to execute when the Applet, Frame or Runnable Frame is destroyed, and add additional import statements.
- Microline Component Toolkit for Java
Company: Microline Software (Sunnyvale, CA)
Telephone: (408) 245-5116
Fax: (408) 245-5126
Description: A graphical user interface (GUI) toolkit for Internet and intranet application development. Provides Grid, Tab Folder and Progress components for Java based on Sun Microsystems's AWT. The toolkit also contains utility functions for creating icons and draw clipped strings and images. Product is a direct port and rewrite of the Microline Widget Library for Motif.
- intelligent message-oriented middleware
Company: New Era of Networks, Inc. (NEON) (Englewood, CO)
Telephone: (303) 486-9348
Description: NEONet is intelligent message-oriented middleware that facilitates integration of legacy and new business applications, including communication via S.W.I.F.T., without a significant programming effort. NEONet provides multi-vendor computing environments with message delivery, sequence, and uniqueness. SunGard Financial Systems, Inc. (SFS), a provider of proprietary investment support systems for banks, brokerage and insurance companies, is now a NEON Value Added Reseller (VAR). SunGard plans to use NEONet initially as an integration solution with its Global Securities Manager (GSM) product, a multi-platform, multi-RDBMS product. GSM is a multi-currency portfolio accounting system marketed globally to bank Capital Markets groups. The ability to integrate GSM with other bank systems is integral to the success of the product and to the success of GSM users. NEONet provides the GSM customer base with a mechanism for integrating these global systems.
- implementation of Java Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0 protocol
Company: Phaos Technology (New York, NY)
Description: An implementation of Netscape's Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0 protocol enabling developers to create cryptographically secure network solutions in the Java programming language. This is a plug-and-play library that provides SSL communications capability in Java, enabling secure Java applications for online banking, electronic commerce, groupware, communications, and entertainment applications. The toolkit provides building blocks for constructing SSL 3.0-compliant client/server Java applets and applications. Among its features are: the complete SSL 3.0 protocol, a cryptographic/security library that includes the DES and triple-DES ciphers, and the MD5 and SHA hash functions, server and client authentication, an ASN.1 encoding and decoding toolkit, and X.509 certificates. It is written completely in Java, without using native methods, and is directly portable to all Java platforms. Its network API is virtually identical to the standard Java network API, so that developers can build secure applets and applications easily.

- Numerical Well Test Analysis Software
Company: GeoQuest (Houston, TX)
Telephone: (713) 513-2000
Fax: (713) 513-2017
Platforms: Unix, Windows
Description: Numerical and analytical well test analysis. Improves reservoir characterization through the application of numerical processes to well test data. Used to analyze tests in reservoirs with geological structures, well geometries and multiphase fluid effects that are too complex to respond to conventional analytical well test techniques. Reduces the cycle time for well test interpretation and for single well simulations. Validates raw well test data, conducts conventional analytical analyses and prepares a numerical model. Using the ECLIPSE simulator, it sets up mathematical models of the regions of the reservoir to be tested. This technique also takes into account all available geological and fluid data. The complexity of real life reservoirs is addressed by the use of perpendicular bisection (PEBI) gridding techniques. This supports accurate representation of the reservoir structure while making the gridding process transparent to the user. It offers a comprehensive range of models for well test analysis including line fitting and type curve matching. Uses the ECLIPSE reservoir simulator to numerically solve well tests. This makes it easier for engineers not typically familiar with reservoir simulation to take advantage of the ECLIPSE simulation technology.
