Projects / Whitebeam


Whitebeam is a frontend XML-centered rapid design environment which makes use of HTML/XML and JavaScript. It integrates two popular and robust Open Source platforms (Apache and Mozilla's SpiderMonkey JavaScript engine), with its own powerful XML environment and security architecture. Providing an extensible XML-based interface to backend objects on any platform, the client model securely segregates thousands of customer applications within a single server.

    Release Notes: This release significantly simplifies the build process, adding support for Apache 2.x, PostgreSQL version 8, and PostgreSQL replication, as well as many other performance and behavioral improvements.

      Release Notes: This release makes the underlying database directly available to application developers. It maintains the previous abstract interface, adding a lower level raw SQL interface to the PostgreSQL database, allowing developers to create application-specific databases that go far beyond the template functionality.

        Release Notes: This release extends the hierarchical catalogue template to allow more flexible searches. It adds a minor fix to the XPath implementation after rereading the specification for comparing node-sets with strings. The strings must be converted to numbers before comparison.
