Maplesoft Ships MapleNet 10

Enhanced Web-Based Platform Now Available for Sharing Live Technical Knowledge and Applications

WATERLOO, CANADA, July 20, 2005 – Maplesoft™, the leading provider of high-performance software tools for engineering, science and mathematics, today announced the availability of MapleNet™ 10, an enhanced Web-based platform for deploying live technical knowledge and applications. Integrated with Maple 10, the company’s flagship product, MapleNet 10 enables users to quickly and easily produce and share interactive online documents.

MapleNet 10 allows users to embed dynamic formulas, models, plots and animations as live knowledge inside Web pages. In addition to authoring live mathematical content using JavaServer Pages™ (JSP™), Java™ applets or Maplet™ applications, users can now create technical documents in Maple 10, incorporating embedded GUI components, and then publish these documents to their MapleNet server. Documents can then be viewed by anyone who has access to the server through a standard internet browser. Maple 10 documents can be browsed easily, and readers can change parameters and generate the results for their problems within their Web browser without needing any additional programming, extra software or plug-ins on their machines.

MapleNet 10 provides the perfect mechanism for rapidly sharing technical knowledge throughout an organization in a way that can be readily used for analysis and problem solving by others who only need to do the analysis, not develop the solution. Research labs can share ideas with technical people who are not Maple users, and academic institutions can present rich interactive material as part of the teaching and learning process.

For large enterprises, solving the problem is often the easy part; the greater challenge is to deploy the solution to people who can benefit from it. That’s where MapleNet comes in. For example, an investment bank in New York writes a Maple program for pricing its bank options. The bank can then deploy the pricing program as a MapleNet application to its international branches that can run it using market data. Also with Maple, an engineering consultant develops an algorithm for computing the required dimensions and materials for the supports of a bridge. The consultant deploys the algorithm as a MapleNet 10 application, which the client can run over the Web without needing to understand the theory behind the algorithm and without installing the application in-house.

“ With the strong adoption of Maple 10 in our user base, the availability of MapleNet 10 is very important to our customers,” said Jim Cooper, CEO of Maplesoft. “The integration of Maple 10 and MapleNet 10 will dramatically change the way Maple users share their applications and knowledge.”

Key features of MapleNet 10 include:

  • Allows deployment of any interactive Maple 10 document on the web
  • 2D Equation Editor to create presentation-quality math expressions in a browser and easily evaluate them
  • Backed by the full power of Maple 10 with over 3000 high-level mathematical and graphical routines, built-in support for units, scientific constants and error analysis, an extendible mathematical programming language, and technical document layout with embedded user interface components
  • Supports a full range of graphical interface components, such as buttons, slider bars, text fields, menus, file browsers, and more
  • Supports authoring as JavaServer pages (JSP), Java applets and Maplet applications
  • Increased language support that allows users to document work in Japanese and other character sets
  • Configurable to any desired level of security
