SAN FRANCISCO (JAVAONE) CA – June 6, 2000– SL Corporation, a provider of software and service solutions for the development of real-time graphical end user interfaces, today announced the availability of SL-GMS J/Developer, the latest addition to its segmented SL-GMS line of unified graphical solutions. The J/Developer integrated solution is specifically designed and optimized for the development of Java-based, platform independent, graphical interface solutions.

As a result, SL-GMS J/Developer enables VARs, OEMs and integrators to quickly prototype and deploy Java-based applications and applets with high-performance graphical requirements. “As more vertical marketplaces move to Java for platform independence and web support, it is increasingly important to deliver graphical interface solutions that maximize performance and flexibility,” said Rodney Morrison, SL-GMS Product Manager, SL Corporation. “The SL-GMSDraw Dynamic Graphic Editor provides complete flexibility in designing dynamic graphic displays and SL-GMS J/Developer offers industry-leading performance with an easy migration path between platform frameworks. These features make SL-GMS J/Developer ideal for a range of industries such as network management, process control, traffic control, and defense.”
SL-GMS J/Developer delivers a comprehensive solution set for creating state-of-the-art graphical inter
faces and includes the SL-GMSDraw Dynamic Graphic Editor and the SL-GMSRun-Time Library for Java, featuring a Code Generator for Java as well as frameworks for applications and applets and tools for model conversion. For added versatility, SL-GMS Draw enables developers to assign graphical dynamic behaviors to application-specific, customized icons instead of vendor-limited graphic libraries. And SL-GMS J/Developer offers simple migration paths for projects created by SL-GMS Draw to be seamlessly applied to ActiveX and C++ environments, helping reduce project porting costs and shorten product time to market.
SL-GMS J/Developer is currently in use in Harris Corporation’s Harris Network Management (HNM) Platform, a comprehensive set of hardware and software tools that allow network managers to detect, evaluate and respond to changing network conditions.
“Transitioning our Harris Network Management (HNM) Platform from a UNIX environment to the Java platform is essential to enable cross-platform independence, Internet support and to facilitate end-user access to HNM from any PC and using any standard browser,” said Ashley Fleeman, program manager, Harris Corporation. “SL Corporation’s SL-GMS J/Developer will allow us to quickly and seamlessly migrate the HNM real-time graphical interface to the Java platform while incorporating a high level of
graphical performance and product customization.”
