Haht Software, the closely watched integrated web development tools company has revved its flagship tool Hahtsite to version 3.0. There are additions on both the client and server sides, but perhaps the most important is the integration of Java on the client, so it can be used alongside Haht’s existing Visual-Basic clone called HahtTalk Basic, which is licensed from Summit Software. With the new version, which is due to ship later this quarter, developers can program in Java and use the Basic as a scripting language to tie it all together for instance. Components can be mixed and matched from both languages in the same application. The third cut supports the latest version of Java, the Java Developer’s Kit (JDK) 1.1, as well as client-side JavaScript, Java Beans and Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC). Hahtsite is a high-end internet development environment that combines page authoring tools, database access utilities, project and site management tools and programming languages. On the server side, Haht has added a distributed version of its existing application server, which enables clusters of server to run together. Haht’s VP marketing Randy Drawas says the existing server can already serve up 3,000 dynamic web pages per minute, and this configuration would enable a company to move its split out its application server from its web server and place a firewall between them. The development environment itself has been enhanced with the addition of integrated two-pass report writing for web applications building, plus various new wizards and database widget enhancements. The company has also added an Oracle cartridge, so Haht can be used as the development environment for Oracle databases and servers. The Raleigh, North Carolina company said earlier this year that it was going to go for one more round of financing, probably this year before going to an initial public offering. Drawas is more skeptical now, and says the company is discussing the possibility of a second round, but is wary of market conditions at the moment, and may well pass for now, as the company is not in desperate need for the money. It raised $7m in a first round in April of last year. It currently has 60 employees. HahtSite intergated development environment costs $2,000 per user, and runs on Windows NT, or 95 and works with any standard web server. The new distributed applications server runs of windows NT, Solaris, AIX or HP-UX and costs $7,500 per server CPU for NT and $10,000 per server CPU for Unix. The regular Hahtsite applications server costs $5,000 per users for NT and $7,000 for Unix.
