WebCream Release

WebCream is a unique tool for Java that provides automated web-enabling for GUI based Java applications and applets. WebCream allows developers to implement a GUI front end using AWT and Swing, and at the same time automatically get HTML access to the application. WebCream can be thought of as a runtime Java to HTML converter, that migrates Java user interface to an interactive web site. It then emulates web page actions as GUI events to retain application original logic. WebCream is unique in that it requires no modifications to existing forms and business logic, and does not require programmers to learn any APIs. You have to see it to believe it - check out our demo applications.
