YesSoftware Brings Rapid Database Connectivity and Code Generation to MicrosoftR FrontPageR

CodeCharge Studio Add-In Simplifies and Speeds Delivery of Powerful Data-Driven Web Applications

Software Development Conference and Expo, San Jose, Calif. - April 24, 2002 - YesSoftware today announced that CodeCharge Studio, the fastest way to develop Web applications, is now available as an Add-In for Microsoft FrontPagea. CodeCharge Studio adds database connectivity and rapid code generation components to FrontPage, allowing users to quickly and easily build powerful, interactive, database-enabled Web applications. YesSoftware is demonstrating the FrontPage Add-In for CodeCharge Studio at the Software Development Exposition April 23-25 at the San Jose Convention Center (Booth #1216). 

The first product to extend FrontPage functionality into a full-featured, integrated development environment, CodeCharge Studio allows developers to generate professional quality code in all popular server-side programming languages including .NET/C#, ASP, ColdFusion, Java, PHP and Perl and offers a professional code editor to extend and fine-tune generated code. Built in data and application wizards, a visual query designer and a macro library, together with site security features and full compatibility with virtually any web server, eliminate the headaches associated with traditional Web application development. Developers can also quickly customize numerous pre-built business applications - further decreasing development time.

"CodeCharge Studio provides a valuable addition to the FrontPage user community," said Giovanni Mezgec, lead product manager for FrontPage at Microsoft Corp. "Together, CodeCharge Studio and FrontPage offer an easy-to-use, yet powerful platform designed to allow a broad range of users to quickly and easily create professional database-connected Web applications."

CodeCharge Studio creates a development environment similar to Microsoft Access, resulting in a low learning curve for Access developers and giving both FrontPage and Access users a quick, simple, and cost-effective solution for building new Web applications that leverage database assets. CodeCharge Studio is also the perfect alternative for Macromedia UltraDev users who want a faster and more comprehensive development environment to create database-enabled Web applications. 

"CodeCharge Studio adds essential functionality to FrontPage and drastically simplifies and speeds the development time for professional, scaleable, database-enabled Web applications," said Konrad Musial, CEO of YesSoftware. "Now, FrontPage users can work easily across both products to effectively produce professional looking, dynamic database-enabled Web applications without spending inordinate amounts of time and money combating connectivity issues or losing any of the flexibility built into that environment."
