Abstract: Inmagic announces DB/Text(r) WebPublisher PRO, a new read/write XML-enabled interactive Web publishing solution. WebPublisher PRO joins a family of Web publishing products that Inmagic has offered since 1996 that provide easy-to-use and scalable solutions to accessing and deploying information on the Internet or a corporate intranet.


Woburn, MA - Inmagic, Inc., a global provider of content and information management software and services, announces DB/Text(r) WebPublisher PRO, a new read/write XML-enabled interactive Web publishing solution. WebPublisher PRO joins a family of Web publishing products that Inmagic has offered since 1996 that provide easy-to-use and scalable solutions to accessing and deploying information on the Internet or a corporate intranet.

WebPublisher PRO and the DB/TextWorks software provide a fully integrated database system with the capability to store, search, and obtain information (text, multimedia and images) on the Web. DB/Text WebPublisher PRO provides all of the advantages of Web interactivity at an affordable price, allowing customers to create and deploy databases of various types and formats to the Web. Unlike many Web publishing tools, which require that customers develop and design their own Web forms and reports, WebPublisher PRO will include an XML Forms Library, making it easy for even non-technical users to publish their databases interactively on the Web by offering a set of pre-programmed templates for Web queries and reports.

"Our customers have implemented databases on their organizational intranets that provide information about competitors, that allow employees to consult online information resources, that make available market studies or corporate patents" states Susan Stearns, VP of Marketing at Inmagic. "Increasingly, our customers want to allow end-users to interact with this content directly from their Web browsers. WebPublisher PRO provides that interactivity, using industry-standard tools such as XML and ODBC. From a biotechnology firm such as Genzyme Corporation to one of Europe's largest semiconductor companies, Philips Semiconductors, Inmagic customers are integrating Web publishing tools into their organizations more and more."

Through the use of XML, HTML, and SOAP, DB/Text WebPublisher PRO is fully open and standards-based, providing the capability to:

  • Publish content to the Internet via a Web browser
  • Edit records in a browser
  • Create interactive forms with third party tools
  • Customize reports to your Web site design
  • Tightly integrate DB/Text textbases with other applications
  • Take advantage of Inmagic's new XML Forms Library.

Many of the world's most prominent companies, universities, law firms and government agencies have chosen DB/Text and its Web publishing solutions to manage business intelligence, research content, image and archive databases, product catalogs, help desk knowledgebases and more. Because WebPublisher PRO is easy to deploy and can support databases with thousands of documents, it is ideal for information-intensive organizations who require Web-based content management solutions.

Inmagic's DB/Text WebPublisher PRO is shipping now with full XML support available in the near future. The XML forms library will be provided as a part of the standard maintenance package from January, 2003. Information and demonstrations are available directly from Inmagic at 1-800-229-8398, sales@inmagic.com, or www.inmagic.com, and dealers can be located at www.inmagic.com/webvar.htm.
