announced at this week’s Seybold Seminars conference and expo in Boston, Mass. the release of a new WebDAV-enabled plug-in designed to make Adobe’s GoLive 5.0 software serve as a front end for Hablador’s own content management system.
Called Hablador Connect: Adobe GoLive Extension, the software streamlines the way Web page designers can integrate their pages into an automated content management system driven by Hablador’s software. The plug-in works with Hablador’s own CMS 2.5 software.
CMS 2.5 itself is a browser-based content management solution designed to support Web sites of any size. According to Hablador, the new plug-in was specifically developed to help Webmasters who are using a content management system for the first time.
Hablador CEO Chris Knotz said that CMS 2.5 can be deployed for a fraction of the cost of comparable content management systems — about US$15,000, versus $50,000 – $500,000 for solutions from other companies.
CMS 2.5 is written in Java, and features an XML-based templating language and an HTTP API. The software works with JDBC-compliant databases, including SQL and Oracle 8i. It supports templates written in a variety of markup languages, as well.
The plug-in will be a free download available from Hablador’s Web site later this month.
