Tom Sawyer Visualization, Version 8.0, ASP.NET Edition, Introduces AJAX Adaptive Tiling Refresh

Oakland, CA, September 10, 2009—Tom Sawyer Software, the leading provider of high-performance graph visualization, layout, and analysis solutions, announces the release of Tom Sawyer Visualization, Version 8.0, ASP.NET Edition.

The Tom Sawyer Visualization product line delivers sophisticated component technology that manages, reveals, and displays graphical, customized views of relational data, making it possible to immediately identify relationships, connections, and emerging patterns within the data. The software displays pathways, models, flows, dependencies, networks, and schematics in a comprehensive visual format.

With technology advances in powerful web and application servers and browser-based thin clients, many organizations have adopted web-based architectures for their software systems. Such thin client architectures provide unified viewing interfaces, machine independence, reduced security burden, and greatly eased IT administration with centralized data and application management. All of this leads to reduced administrative costs.

Tom Sawyer Visualization, ASP.NET Edition provides flexible and extensible ASP.NET components and libraries that enable you to add graph visualization functionalities to your web applications quickly and efficiently. With this product, you can embed interactive images of your relational data within a web application, and easily enhance your web applications with sophisticated graph display and viewing technologies presented in an eye-catching, intuitive graphical user interface.

New Benefits

Tom Sawyer Visualization, Version 8.0, ASP.NET Edition adds support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and 64-bit computers. This helps users improve the performance and scalability of their applications.

Tom Sawyer Visualization, Version 8.0, ASP.NET Edition also offers many AJAX performance related features including a new adaptive tiling refresh system. This feature enables customers in network monitoring and operations centers to propagate network status changes to browser applications more quickly and efficiently. End users can access the server with enhanced throughput. Further, new asynchronous layout permits end users to perform large layouts, and comfortably switch tabs to add additional browser sessions.

Users can also take advantage of a new symmetric layout algorithm that significantly enhances layout performance. Symmetric layout executes five to ten times faster and circular layout executes twice as fast. Additionally, this release implements new drawing fitting technology where symmetric layout has new features to more optimally fit the drawing canvas or the printed page. This enables users to more easily view drawings at lower zoom levels.

In addition, this release adds support for displaying drawings in GIF, JPEG, and PNG formats, and includes new and improved documentation including new development and deployment setup guides, additional tutorials, and an enhanced Developer's Guide.
