New Scripting Tool Adds Macro Capabilities

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE) — Nov. 12, 1997 — Nombas, Inc. announced today
the release of the ScriptEase:Integration SDK 4.0 developers’ kit for
applications and embedded systems. The kit enables application developers
to enhance, extend and customize their applications using the flexible,
easy-to-use, JavaScript compatible, ScriptEase scripting language. The
ScriptEase:Integration SDK allows developers to quickly and simply embed a
fully functional script language interpreter into any C/C++ application.

Over 90% of all browser client-side dynamic content on the web is already
being developed with JavaScript. By merging ScriptEase with JavaScript,
Nombas is making JavaScript available for all classes of software and
embedded systems, not just for browsers. ScriptEase:Integration SDK
leverages the popularity, power and ease-of-use of JavaScript (an
international standard under the name “ECMAScript”) to enable developers to
customize and extend applications far beyond their off-the-shelf
capabilities. ScriptEase:Integration SDK provides the full power of an
interpreter engine without the time, engineering or hardware resources
required to develop a proprietary macro language. ScriptEase:Integration
SDK allows for more flexible applications, improved code re-use, easier
portability and significantly reduced application development times.

Brent Noorda, president Nombas Inc. commented, ” Nombas’ focus is the
development of platform-independent scripting tools that deliver power and
simplicity to application developers and to their end-users.
ScriptEase:Integration SDK is the easiest way to add end-user customization
to your application.” He added, ” There is a well defined need to provide
an alternative to writing fat, quickly out-dated, inflexible applications.
The solution is flexible scripted customization of software applications
and components. The ScriptEase:Integration SDK provides just that

Incorporating the ScriptEase (JavaScript) language into your application is
a fast and straight-forward process. Through simple initializing function
calls, the ScriptEase engine is directly integrated into your application.
The ScriptEase:Integration SDK’s 80 API functions allow the application
unlimited interaction with the script language and vice versa. The
ScriptEase:Integration SDK offers a safe and controlled environment in
which to access application functions and data and can be executed from
within a single 64k segment.

Platforms and operating systems supported by the ScriptEase:Integration SDK
include Windows 3.1, Windows `95/NT/PPC, Linux, Unix, DOS, OS/2, MacOS,
NetWare, and embedded systems. OS/390 and 100% Pure Java upgrades will be
available in Q1, 1998. ScriptEase:Integration SDK is $995.
