Australian newspaper system developer Pongrass Publishing Systems is showing the beta version 6 of its newspaper advertising suite.
Version 6 is a browser-based system using AJAX and XML to replicate the Windows-based environment that users are still most comfortable with. With the new version, the browser remains active and in communication with the server during ad entry in order to reduce communications overhead.
Because Version 6 is browser-based, clients won’t have to install updated software on each user’s workstation. The “massively scalable” software supports the Sybase SQL Anywhere 10 server, which should enhanceme performance and security and support databases over 100 gigabytes and thousands of users.
