Demicron announces Applet FX Freeware and Commercial
The Swedish software developer Demicron today announced
the release of Applet FX, Freeware and Commercial Edition,
two new products consisting of a number of Java
applets. Also included is Visual Applet Configurator,
a new visual tool that helps the user through the configuration
and installation procedure of the applets on homepages.
The applets will enhance the functionality and interactivity
of homepages. One of the highest priorities in the development
of the applets has been to give them an attractive design.
Included in the package are menus, image/text presentation
tools and special effects applets.
All applets have several parameters, allowing the users
to change the applets' appearance and functionality.
For example, one can change colors, texts, images and
sounds. This makes it possible to give the applets a
unique look in order to make them compatible with the
design theme of the homepages in which they are used.
Visual Applet Configurator is the tool that manages
the applets. It has tailor made configuration dialogs
for each included applet which will allow the user to
change all of the applets' parameters using a visual
interface. It also has an integrated ftp-tool that takes
care of all necessary transfers of HTML-files, applets,
images and sounds to and from the web-servers.
Some of the features you will find in Visual Applet
· Integrated ftp-tool transfers all necessary
files to and from the web-server.
