San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 7, 2006
Quantum Art, a leading developer of content management and web publishing software, today announced a combined release of QP7.4, its award-winning content application server, and a Microsoft Visual Studio® integration module. By using QP7’s rapid application development platform in concert with Visual Studio, .NET developers now have a unique framework for building content management-enabled web applications. Out of the box, QP7.4 now addresses solution architecture, code management and performance optimization in .NET web application development, offering a productive and intuitive environment for complex web application development.
Most content management systems offer only an API library, but not a complete rapid application development platform, which forces developers to design applications with their own architectural schemes, resulting in longer development cycles and potential performance lags due to certain application integration requirements. QP7.4’s comprehensive development platform, integrated with Visual Studio, increases developer productivity by providing an object-oriented templating environment that addresses the majority of architectural decisions, pre-generates code and enforces code reuse to minimize development steps. As a result, .NET developers can complete content management applications much faster, and put them to use in real-world production environments.
“As the web becomes more dynamic and application-rich, it forces companies to reconsider how to manage and publish their content,” said Quantum Art’s CEO Edward Shenderovich. “With QP7.4, we’re giving internal corporate developers and implementation teams the framework they need to create world-class content management-enabled web applications quickly and easily. We are taking traditional content management to the next step, going beyond the separation of content and presentation in managing web pages, to provide developers with a framework for adding content management functionality to any web application.”
Along with Visual Studio integration, new QP7.4 features include:
- Single Interface for Adding/Editing Related Content Items – users save time by having the ability to edit multiple content articles via a single screen
- Object "check in / check out" - a safety feature that prevents code overwrites
- Optimized Backend Performance – offering a further reduction in page download and processing time
- Expanded Support for .NET 2.0 – support for all the features of .NET 2.0 and .NET 1.1
