Tom Sawyer Software Releases Upgraded Java Layout Software

Tom Sawyer Layout, Version 9.0, Java Edition, Introduces New Drawing Fitting

Oakland, CA, December 15, 2008—Tom Sawyer Software, the leading provider of high-performance graph visualization, layout, and analysis solutions, today announced the release of Tom Sawyer Layout, Version 9.0, Java Edition.

Tom Sawyer Layout, Java Edition, is a versatile set of Java classes and APIs that enable users to organize and lay out relational data, producing exceptionally clear diagrams that reveal hidden relationships and underlying structures. Tom Sawyer Layout, Java Edition, is a portable and flexible software library that can be integrated with your own database, display, and graphics systems. Whether you are developing Sun Swing, Eclipse SWT, or thin client applications, you can benefit from its superb layout capabilities.

New Benefits

Tom Sawyer Layout, Version 9.0, Java Edition offers fine global and incremental automatic layout, labeling, and routing. For years, enterprise-class customers with large complex data sets and many drawing rules have been aware that no other academic, commercial, or open source offering has the scalability, reliability, and quality that Tom Sawyer products offer.

Tom Sawyer Layout, Version 9.0, implements new drawing fitting technology where each layout style has new features to fit the drawing canvas or the printed page more optimally. For instance, circular and symmetric layouts will rotate optimally to fit the canvas or printed page. If a resultant drawing more closely fits the aspect ratio of the canvas or printed page, then each user interface element in the drawing is easier to read at lower zoom levels. Further, this release continues with many layout, labeling, and routing refinements.
