Tom Sawyer Software Releases New Pure Java Visualization Software

Tom Sawyer Visualization, Version 6.0, Java Edition, Introduces Full XML Integration and Advanced Orthogonal Layout Technology

Oakland, CA, April 23, 2004—Tom Sawyer® Software, a leading provider of high-performance graph visualization, layout, and analysis solutions, today released Tom Sawyer Visualization, Version 6.0, Java Edition, the latest of its visualization product line. The Tom Sawyer Visualization product line delivers sophisticated component technology that manages, reveals and displays graphical and customized views of relational data, immediately identifying relationships, connections and emerging patterns within the data.

Tom Sawyer Visualization enables users to organize relational data and present clear and concise graphical views of this data to enhance the decision-making process. The software displays process flows, clustering, dependencies and cycles in a comprehensive visual format.

"Searching for answers and solutions within complex systems can be time-consuming and counterproductive without the right tools," said Brendan P. Madden, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tom Sawyer Software. "Tom Sawyer Visualization helps you transform information, patterns and trends into concise graph diagrams and drawings so that you can make better-informed and faster decisions."

New Features

The new release of Tom Sawyer Visualization introduces full XML integration and advanced orthogonal layout technology, in addition to many enhanced features.

The new XML file format allows exchanging and integrating data between Tom Sawyer products and your applications quickly and easily. It supports directly embedded images and incremental data loading.

The new release brings our high-performance orthogonal layout technology, for the first time, in pure Java. The new high-speed orthogonal layout produces very compact and area-efficient drawings and also supports incremental layout. Orthogonal layout also supports a variety of geometric constraints to suit the user's application needs, including constraints placed on actions such as alignment, separation, sequencing, ranging, grouping and flow routing.

The new technology creates an ideal interactive design environment for complex models, networks, pathways and schematics.

Tom Sawyer Visualization, Version 6.0, Java Edition, offers several new features as well as a host of significant feature enhancements. Some highlights include:

"Our products empower organizations and businesses to explore patterns and relationships, and discover information underlying their relational data sources to ultimately gain insights that were previously unclear or unknown," said Madden. He adds, "We hope that our prospects and customers will take a close look at the performance and quality that we have achieved with Tom Sawyer Visualization, Java Edition. With a close look, it will become apparent to serious product companies that Tom Sawyer's products are the best and most reliable on the market, and perhaps so by a wide margin. In order to build high quality products, it is necessary to rely on high quality technology."
