Mainstay Releases JustProgress(tm)
Web-Based Gantt Chart Applets

Camarillo, CA, May 24, 1999-Mainstay today released JustProgress, a
set of web-based Gantt chart applets used to plan, track, and display
project status. JustProgress offers an application-like look and
feel, right in a web page. A project schedule is no longer limited to
a static GIF image display. Planning and tracking are done via an
associated JustProgressEdit applet in which a project manager lists
and plans various tasks in a dialog box interface. Later, when the
project is underway, the manager uses the same interface to indicate
“progress completed” and “revised plans” for various project tasks.

Anyone interested in viewing project status need only call up the web
page with the JustProgress applet to see the latest updated
information. In cases where the project calendar exceeds the
available width or height of the page, a scrolling interface
facilitates viewing.

“Up to now, Gantt charts have been painstakingly rendered to GIF
images for use on the web,” says Tom Nalevanko, president of
Mainstay. “This two-step process means the data on the web is rarely
up to date. Using JustProgress, project managers now have a one-step
process. By doing their planning and tracking in a web page, their
Gantt charts need never be out of sync with reality.”

JustProgress provides a full-featured scrolling timeline which
displays year, month, day and date. A background GIF and background
and foreground colors can be used to personalize the calendar. Task
title width is variable and a task can be linked to a URL to display
a lower-level schedule or associated task information. Taskbars offer
standard geometric start and end shapes, and fill colors are

JustProgress, a Java applet set, is compatible with both Microsoft
Internet Explorer(tm) and Netscape Navigator(tm), v 4.0 or later,
running on Windows 95/98/NT, Macintosh, and Unix, and requires no
server-side applications.

An on-line demonstration of JustProgress is available at A commercial version is available directly from
Mainstay for $99.95, single user. For more information contact Lance
