Hey, developers, Imacination Software, the gang behind the Ch-Ching! Instant E-commerce software, plans to release their Web application development software,
jTalk, in mid-April.

jTalk — which is being demonstrating at the JavaOne Java developer conference — is a JSP custom tag library that lets users develop and build Web applications. jTalk provides a HTML-like, XML syntax that leverages the power of any Java Application Server by providing math and string functions, logic and expression parsing, database and e-mail integration, as well as server control.
jTalk’s Model-View-Controller architecture solidifies collaboration between developers by separating the presentation or design layer from the business logic, said Imacination President Allon Bendavid. The MVC architecture enables designers and developers to work simultaneously and independently of each other, making changes without disrupting the usability of the Web application, he added.
jTalk is built upon the standards for Web applications integrating with Java Application Servers and SQL Database Servers, Bendavid said. An included jTalk Web-based Database Manager allows users to build pooled database connections, view and modify database schema design, and access their data through and interactive or advanced database query wizard.
jTalk’s XML syntax is scriptable in any development environment including Macromedia Dreamweaver UltraDev and Adobe GoLive. The product can be ordered now at a license fee of US $999 per production server until its final release (probably April 15) at $1,299. Documentation, product information, and data sheets and links to working applications built upon the jTalk platform can be viewed online.
