Novasoft has rewritten its Novamanage workflow-based document management family in Java and renamed it Novaweb.
As a result, it expects to move Novamanage into maintenance in the second half of next year and is likely to discontinue support within three years, depending on demand.
Jothy Rosenberg, Novasoft?s vice president of engineering, said: ?Ultimately, all the functionality in Novamanage will move into Novaweb. But in the interim, we?ll create a link to allow a fat client to access the new server-side functionality. The new functionality will reside in an application server, which will initially ship with Novaweb.?
The Novaweb line, which is scheduled to ship in September, will comprise two initial offerings. Viewer is aimed at the casual user, who simply wants to look at a document without altering it, and costs between $300 to $400 per seat.
Approver, which enables users to amend the document and approve it before passing it on to someone else, costs $900 per seat.
Unlike Novamanage, which processed logic on a Windows-based client, Novaweb carries out processing on a separate file server. Documents can also be accessed from a Web browser.
The next product in the Novaweb family will ship in the first quarter of next year and will be called Creator. This will be aimed at users who want to create workflow processes and administer the system.
Novasoft is also developing an application programming interface (API) to make it easier for third party tools and applications to work with its products.
Its existing client API includes only 22 functions, but from next month, the company will work with customers and partners to broaden its functionality and make it more suitable for server-based processing. The new API is expected in the first quarter of next year.
