Advansys Formativ - A GroupWise Development Revolution

Advansys Corporation, a specialist Novell? GroupWise? development partner, has released Formativ?, a ground-breaking product which adds applet capability to GroupWise. For GroupWise users, administrators and value-added resellers, Advansys Formativ offers a compelling new opportunity to customize and extend GroupWise. Formativ is a totally new GroupWise development environment encompassing applet creation, simplified yet fully featured GroupWise programming and extensive 'point and click' applet integration capabilities with the GroupWise client. Fully Novell eDirectory? enabled, Formativ offers easy centralized management of applets and client features.

"Formativ realizes the Advansys vision of providing a simple, yet powerful, development tool for the wider GroupWise community", said Greg Bell, Advansys Managing Director. "For the first time both professional developers and power users have the means to build GroupWise solutions quickly and easily. Organizations can now fully leverage their GroupWise investment while simultaneously increasing user satisfaction."

GroupWise solutions can be developed quickly with the Formativ applet language and, with just a few clicks of the mouse, users can integrate applets with GroupWise toolbars, menus and events. For example, Formativ applets can run automatically when a message is received, composed or sent.

"Formativ is a great new tool for the GroupWise community," said Richard Bliss, product marketing manager for Novell collaboration services. "The benefits of rapid GroupWise development and customization are now available to a broad audience, and Formativ's eDirectory integration fits squarely within Novell's enterprise management vision."
