Macromedia Unveils Macromedia MX products

(April 29, 2002) - Macromedia, Inc. has announced Macromedia MX, a new integrated family of tool, server, and client technologies for creating rich Internet applications that promise significantly more intuitive, responsive, and effective user experiences across platforms and devices. The Macromedia MX product family includes the Macromedia ColdFusion MX server-scripting environment and a powerful suite of development tools: Macromedia Flash MX, Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, Macromedia Fireworks MX, and Macromedia FreeHand 10, which are available together in Macromedia Studio MX

In addition to increasing results through better user experiences, rich Internet applications built with Macromedia MX lower development costs and leverage existing IT infrastructure. Developers can use Macromedia MX to build solutions on the Sun Java platform and the Microsoft .NET Framework, and the products in Macromedia MX have strong support for industry standards such as XML, Web services, and accessibility.

In conjunction with the new releases, IBM Corp. and Macromedia, Inc. announced a strategic relationship that brings the Macromedia ColdFusion MX rapid server scripting environment to the IBM WebSphere Internet infrastructure software platform. As a result of this agreement, the large Macromedia developer community will have the option of developing and deploying ColdFusion MX applications on WebSphere. The agreement includes joint development, sales, marketing and technical support activities to serve customers using the integrated IBM/Macromedia platform.

As part of the agreement, IBM will be the first J2EE platform provider company to resell ColdFusion MX for IBM WebSphere Application Server to customers worldwide through the IBM Passport Advantage licensing program. Macromedia will also offer the product through its own sales channels. Both companies will mobilize their sales forces and partner networks to offer solutions based on the combined capabilities of WebSphere and ColdFusion MX.

Sun Microsystems, Inc. and Macromedia, Inc., have also entered into a strategic agreement, offering Web developers more choice by enabling them to combine the rapid application development capabilities of Macromedia ColdFusion MX with the scalability and reliability of the Sun ONE platform. Through the combined expertise of the two companies, Web developers will be able to easily integrate their ColdFusion based applications with the Sun ONE Application Server. ColdFusion developers and J2EE developers can use ColdFusion MX to share Java objects, dramatically increasing development productivity and lowering costs across IT organizations.

Sun and Macromedia are collaborating on the development of ColdFusion MX for the Sun ONE Application Server, a new product that will enable customers to build and deploy ColdFusion applications on the Sun ONE Application Server. The companies will also jointly execute sales and marketing activities for the product.
