In an aggressive move to capture the rapidly expanding electronic forms software market, Canadian workflow company Jetform has introduced a Java-based forms creation tool, which will allow organisations to create e-forms over the Web without investing in any client software.
The new Java functionality, which was added to the company?s Jet Design product and launched on the Web this Wednesday, is aimed at casual e-forms users such as customers or suppliers who typically require a one-time use of a single form. Using Jetform Design Java Edition, Web developers will be able to create Java-based e-forms that can be completed by end users with Java-compliant Web browsers.
Phil Weaver, executive vice president of Jetform, said: ?Until now, Webmasters had to struggle with HTML to create e-forms that lack data validation, intelligent forms capabilities and integration with forms processing on the server. Java in Jet Design vastly simplifies the deployment of e-forms across the enterprise and we believe Java-based forms will open up the Web market to easier electronic commerce.?
Jetform currently has about 80 per cent market share of the $240 million electronic forms processing market. The Gartner Group estimates that the market will grow from a worldwide installed base of less than four million users in 1995 to 30 million by 2000.
Jetform Design Java Edition is available now as a free download at the company?s Web site - http://www.jetform.com. Pricing of the full product will be announced in the first quarter of 1997. System requirements include a 486 or Pentium processor, 8mbytes of Ram, and Windows NT or 95.
