New Release Adds Dynamic Web Graphics Generation
Vienna, VA, March 3, 1998 Morph Technologies, Inc.
(http://www.morphtech.com) today the release of DynaMorph(TM) 1.6 its
flagship server-side scripting language. With this release, users can now
dynamically generate web graphics. This new capability enables designers of
advanced web sites to build sites which automatically create images based
upon values present in a file, a database or a form submission. These new
features allow designers to:
Reading images from disk as a basis for a new image
Drawing geometric shapes onto the image: lines, rectangles, circles,
Drawing text onto a background image
Copying portions of one image onto another
Resizing of images "Great for automatic generation of Thumbnail images"
Create bar charts and progress indicators
Combining these new capabilities with Morph's advanced caching techniques
and powerful database interaction tools, cutting-edge web developers can
build web sites that automatically maintain their own graphical content.
Users can preview this capability by pointing their browsers at:
"We see the merging of graphical manipulation as the next logical step in
advanced web site development tools." said Marc Slack, President of Morph
Technologies Inc. "Users can now build website templates where both the
textual content and the graphical content can now be generated on-the-fly.
This new capability makes it possible to build fully self maintaining
database driven web sites."
DynaMorph enables a website or application developer to employ the power of
CGI programming directly inside of HTML documents without the need for
advanced PERL or C++ programming skills. DynaMorph has database
connectivity for all ODBC-compatible databases on Windows NT/95 and Mac
servers as well as native database support for UNIX-based databases. Also
available with the current release are PC- and Mac-Authorize plug ins which
provide real-time, credit card authorization directly from any webserver.
DynaMorph is the only true cross-platform server-side scripting engine,
with support for Windows NT/95, Mac OS and UNIX. This enables web
development companies (or internal IS/Web departments) to perform site or
application development work on Macs or PCs, yet deliver their work to
clients running websites, intranets and web-based applications on NT or
UNIX platforms. A website or application built using DynaMorph can
literally be moved from one computer to another, independent of the
operating system, and work automatically with no additional effort
With DynaMorph, it is easier to perform the tasks associated with website
creation and maintenance as well as to develop sophisticated web-based
applications which previously required an intimate knowledge of CGI
programming. Examples include discussion forums, chat servers, on-line
scholastic testing systems, interactive training, adaptive information
publishing, product registration, and electronic commerce.
