Information architects use SmartMode SiteMap to set up a site in minutes
and ensure a consistent user experience. HTML developers use SmartMode
Wizard to instantly create transactional multi-screen data entry wizards
that map between JavaBeans and Enterprise JavaBeans and HTML forms. Java

Java, SQL databases, and XML. SmartMode dynamically generates Java classes
that can be invoked from JSP pages, Servlets, and other Java programs.
Developers benefit from SmartMode's open, standards-based approach, which
preserves investments in existing tools, training, and infrastructure.
SmartMode interoperates with JSP 1.1 JavaServer Pages and Servlet 2.2
engines including BEA WebLogic 6.x, IBM WebSphere 4.0+, Tomcat, and Borland
AppServer. SmartMode works on Linux, Solaris, Windows NT/2000, and Mac OS
X. SmartMode Halogen maps Java objects and Enterprise JavaBeans to Oracle
8i, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB/2, PostgreSQL 7.1, and HSQLDB.
