Softwerc announced its URL Generator, a point-and-click portlet development tool to enable developers to customize executive dashboards, trading desktops, and other enterprise portals without custom programming.
The software is designed to capture any Web-based content and turn it into a URL that may be incorporated into a new or existing portal, reducing the time and expense of portal creation by as much as 90 percent.
The software relies on patent-pending "digital scissors" technology that allows developers to clip select portions of any Web-based data source, including individual panes, links and forms, for repurposing inside third-party or homegrown portals.
Key features include:
- Open Java-based architecture that supports any enterprise portal development application, including products from IBM, BEA, Microsoft, Plumtree, Epicentric, SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Sybase, and Siebel
- One-time portlet development, enabling users to deploy the same portlet across multiple portals with a single Werclet-generated URL rather than writing new code for each platform
- Support for real-time data feeds, charts, and news
Softwerc's URL Generator runs on Linux or Solaris with SQL Server 2000, DB2, and Oracle databases, and uses BEA WebLogic Server, Windows NT/2000, or IBM WebSphere Application Server.
