"The JGenerator" is an open source Java application from JZox which offered functionality similar to that of Macromedia Generator.

Product history[]

When Macromedia discontinued support for Generator with version 2.6 in June 2003,[1] the last version did not support the new Macromedia Flash MX format.[2]

Independent programmer Dmitry Skavish had developed JGenerator with Java in 2000 to offer similar functionality through an open source implementation which ran up to 20 times faster.[3] JGenerator version 2.1 MX added support for Flash MX.[4][5]

Editions[]

JGenerator 2.x was available in a free Community Edition and a paid Enterprise Edition which added the following features:[6]

  • All Chart objects
  • Dynamic Text Effects
  • GUI
  • Plot Object
  • JDBC connection pooling
  • Flash MX JGenerator components

A Developer Edition had also been made available for version 2.0 to provide a development environment for individual designers or developers without support for actual server-based online content production.[7]

Discontinuation[]

On December 11, 2003, Macromedia signed a licensing agreement with JZox, which no longer sells JGenerator.[5][8] The last available version was 2.2.5 MX.[5]
