Webgenz and Content Management

Webgenz is an object-oriented content management system and web site development tool for Windows. If you've outgrown WYSIWYG desktop development tools, like FrontPage or Dreamweaver, but you're not ready to spend a fortune on enterprise content management systems, like Vignette or Interwoven, then Webgenz is for you!

"Webgenz is the way to go for Web development. This is web-building
at its best, and provides an alternative to the insanity of
WYSIWYG software like FrontPage."
-- John December, author "The World Wide Web Unleashed"
Many Benefits
Webgenz generates web site documents (HTML, ASP, JSP, PHP, XML, XSL, etc.) from reusable templates and content macros. Using a practical, file-based approach, Webgenz allows you to take advantage of powerful content management features without the hassle or cost of installing a high-end system. Some of the many benefits of Webgenz include:
  • Content Reuse - Webgenz offers unparalleled support for content reuse so you never need to maintain the same content in multiple places.

  • Design Independence - Webgenz allow you to maintain web page design independently from content, so it's simple and efficient to make global design changes.

  • Code Integrity - Unlike many HTML development tools, Webgenz does not change your HTML code or add unnecessary tags. You have complete control over the code generated by Webgenz.

  • Ease-of-Use - The Webgenz graphical user interface makes it easy to manage shared content and templates. Webgenz supports one-click integration with your favorite text editor and version control software.

  • HTML Preprocessor - The Webgenz macro language provides powerful HTML preprocessing capabilities, giving you the ability to structure and organize your HTML source files.

What makes Webgenz unique is the application of object-oriented and structured programming techniques to content management and web site development. Webgenz allows you to organize content macros into an inheritance hierarchy, making content sharing and reuse more powerful yet easier to manage. Passing parameters to macros provides even greater support for content reuse. Webgenz includes many of the features found in HTML preprocessors, plus much more.

Easy Integration
Webgenz CMS Main Screen Webgenz is designed to easily integrate with your existing infrastructure. The Webgenz generation process is an off-line, "compile time" operation. No changes to your web server or on-line systems are required. And, since Webgenz is a file-based, you don't need a special database server as you do with many other content management systems.

Webgenz is compatible with the tools and technologies you're using today. You can use Webgenz to manage HTML files, ASP files, JSP files, PHP files, XML files, XSL files, and more. The Webgenz content management solution can be used by individual developers or by teams of website engineers. Webgenz is a 32-bit Windows application that generates content for any web server platform, including Windows, UNIX, Apache, and Linux.
