NetObjects Ships Next Generation Web Services Platform During 2001 JavaOneSM Conference
Introduces first WYSIWYG Design-Time Environment for Integrating Web Services to Web Sites and Web Applications
Redwood City, Calif., June 4, 2001—NetObjects (NASDAQ: NETO), a leading provider of e-business solutions and services, today during the JavaOne Conference introduced the NetObjects Matrix Platform. The NetObjects Matrix Platform is the first open platform for integrating Web Services from a range of third-party providers into the end-user Web site building process.
Built on Java technology, the NetObjects Matrix Platform is the industry’s first open, component-based architecture that can run on any major J2EE Java Application Servers from companies such as BEA, IBM, and Sun. It’s the first to offer component APIs capable of integrating Web Services from any Web-based platform, including Java-based and .NET Web Services. Once registered on the NetObjects Matrix Platform, these Web Services are available to NetObjects channel partners to offer to their business customers – opening new revenue opportunities for Web Service providers while broadening the range of solutions NetObjects can offer its channel partners and large companies that serve the small business market.
“We’ve developed the first go-to-market platform for ISPs, telecommunications companies, hardware manufacturers, and major brands who want to offer their customers an integrated suite of Web Services from a range of providers,” said Samir Arora, chairman and CEO of NetObjects. “By making it easy to integrate Web Services regardless of the underlying technology, our partners can offer seamless, end-to-end solutions based on industry standards.”
The NetObjects Matrix Platform allows partners to customize the site structures, page layouts, and site styles they can offer their customers through XML-based design templates. The NetObjects Matrix Platform services include the ability to easily integrate Web Services at the page level without the need for end-user coding; the ability to create multiple template-driven wizards; and the ability to create custom handlers for events in the NetObjects Matrix Builder. The flexible publishing interface allows partners to output multiple formats simultaneously, including HTML and WML, and makes it easy for end-users to submit their sites to marketplaces and directory services.
By deploying the NetObjects Matrix Platform, companies can open new revenue streams by packaging Web Service solutions and selling them to their customers. Separately, NetObjects is also announcing today deployment of the NetObjects Matrix Platform by Telecom Italia.
