*ServAlert 2.0

ServAlert 2.0 is a utility written for all Novell Networks. The product is installed on a logged out workstation that has a modem and polls the server or multiple servers at intervals that are set by the administrator. Intervals are minute-long increments. If ServAlert detects that the server is not up and running, it dials those phone numbers specified in the program by the administrator, and pages those listed personnel with the unique identification number of the server that is down. Should the server come back online, the program will dial those listed personnel and notify them that it is back online. The program also keeps an activity log which can be printed, edited, or deleted.

ContactLink for ACT!

ContactLink expands the functionality of ACT! 3.x/4.x and GroupWise 5.x by allowing seamless communication between these two outstanding products. ContactLink directly E-mails ACT! contacts, seamlessly passes contact information from an ACT! session to a GroupWise E-mail message, and automatically schedules activities with ACT! contacts on the GroupWise calendar. These ContactLink features allow the easy transfer of client information between co-workers.

ContactLink provides ability to send a GroupWise E-mail directly from ACT! A user initiates ContactLink by clicking the ContactLink button on the ACT! tool bar. GroupWise is then opened up with the ContactLink view. The E-mail (or scheduling) information of the selected ACT! contact has already been placed in the address field of the message (by ContactLink) and the user fills out any additional E-mail information to be included. The ContactLink message/event is then sent directly to the ACT! contact (or scheduled) via GroupWise.

ContactLink for Goldmine

ContactLink expands the functionality of GoldMine 3.x / 4.x and GroupWise 5.x by allowing seamless communication between these two outstanding products. ContactLink directly E-mails Goldmine contacts, seamlessly passes contact information from a Goldmine session to a GroupWise E-mail message, and automatically schedules activities with Goldmine contacts on the GroupWise calendar. These ContactLink features allow the easy transfer of client information between co-workers.

ContactLink provides the ability to send a GroupWise E-mail directly from Goldmine. The user initiates ContactLink by clicking the ContactLink button on the Goldmine tool bar. GroupWise is then opened up with the ContactLink view. The E-mail (or scheduling) information of the selected Goldmine contact has already been placed in the address field of the message (by ContactLink) and the user fills out any additional E-mail information to be included. The ContactLink message/event is then sent directly to the Goldmine contact (or is scheduled) via GroupWise.

A version of ContactLink is also available for integrating GroupWise with ACT! (and Maximizer/Sidekick in the future).

ContactWise also helps you track business activity based on specific projects. With ContactWise you can track all the activity of each internal or external contact involved with that project (phone calls, E-mails, faxes* and other correspondence) to companies or contacts relative to a given project. (*Use fax software that integrates with GroupWise.)

ContactWise was also developed to streamline office workflow around contact management information, and to allow other workflow modules (some "off-the-shelf" modules, some "custom") to plug into the basic contact management module.

*Instant Basic for Java 1.2.6

Instant Basic for Java (IB4J) is a 4GL development tool similar to Microsoft Visual Basic. IB4J enables developers to rapidly create Java solutions without learning yet another Java development tool or the Java language. The entire Instant Basic product line is 100% Pure Java certified, making IB4J one of the first Java certified development tools in the market.

IB4J enables applications to be developed visually, through an easy-to-use rapid development environment. Furthermore, IB4J supports VB functions, controls, project and form files, and the VB language syntax. Aside from simplifying Java development, IB4J provides an easy path for porting and migrating existing VB applications, thus extending the "Write Once, Run Anywhere" promise of Java to legacy code. This allows developers to write fully portable, highly functional Java applications for their Novell servers using the simplest language on the planet—BASIC. IB4J also features full support for Novell's JavaBeans and NetWare Client DLLs. Consequently, developers can also write client applications and applets such as remote system administration, user tracking, and more.

IB4J includes a 100% Pure Java compiler that compiles VB source code directly to Java bytecode as either applets, stand-alone applications/packages or JavaBeans. Other powerful tools incorporated into IB4J include: an event-based Code Editor, a Form Painter, a Menu Editor for quickly placing and activating menus, a Project Browser for easy navigation through all components, JDBC-based Data Control, DAO/RDO support, and much more.

All supported Visual Basic controls are implemented as JavaBeans components. IB4J has full support for JavaBeans and external Java classes, thus providing maximum flexibility and extensibility. Bundled with IB4J (professional) is Instant Installer (II), which allows developers to deploy a single installation file for all Java platforms. II is entirely visual and uses wizard-like interfaces.

*Instant_Installer 1.3

Instant Installer is a lightweight yet full-featured 100% Pure Java certified installer that allows a quick and simple way to prepare 100% Pure Java installations. Developers can create single-step installation files that can be executed on all Java-enabled platforms. Supports multiple installation configurations via project files. A full visual interface and graphical installation wizard make it easy for the developer to prepare an installation. You save the time and expense of building an installation for each platform, because the package created by Instant Installer identifies the platform on which it is operating and customizes its installation to the target system.
