Macromedia launches visual system for web application development.


Macromedia Inc has launched new authoring software designed to allow developers, programmers and designers to visually create and edit data-driven web applications on multiple server platforms.

According to Macromedia, the new Dreamweaver UltraDev product can be used by e-businesses to accelerate delivery of projects ranging from dynamically generated pages and forms to enterprise class systems such as e-commerce stores, inventory management systems and database applications for intranets.

The system is based on Macromedia's Dreamweaver software offering all the features of Dreamweaver 3. Other features include an ability for users to preview web applications and tight integration with Macromedia's Fireworks, Flash, and Shockwave products.

Macromedia Dreamweaver UltraDev will be available in June for both Macintosh and Windows platforms priced at GBP499. Registered Dreamweaver 3 customers will be able to purchase the software for GBP199.
