             Mape - Modular Application Engine, release 0.1

   The Mape Global Development Team is proud to announce first  release 
 of the Modular APplication Engine (MAPE).  The goal of this OpenSource 
 system (licensed GPL/LGPL)  is to provide capabilities to write multi-
 tier applications in multiple programming languages,    use  different 
 GUIs on clients and access multiple database systems. 

   Whole applications are stored in MAPE system catalog which is stored
 in a supported SQL database  server.   XML  is  used  for  application 
 description - how the application should look and what it should do. 
 Applications are running on the server,  but  some  parts  can run the 
 client too.

   Where the thing can be found -

 What can do MAPE now:

   * use PostgreSQL for its system catalog location
   * access PostgreSQL, InterBase, ODBC and DB2 data sources for
     application data
   * use GTK+ as a GUI toolkit on clients
   * write applications as functions in any language that can create a
     shared library
   * write applications as Tcl scripts
   * use SQL queries for retrieving/storing application data

 What you can expect in the future:

   * use more DB servers - Oracle, MySQL, ...
   * use more GUI toolkits - Qt, text-ones, HTML (so you can use your 
     Web browser as a client), ...
   * use more scripting languages for writing applications - Python, 
     Perl, ...
   * client implementation in Java
   * XML-RPC support
