WebMacro 1.1 Press Release

Version 1.1 of the WebMacro Open Source web-scripting engine released.

January 13, 2003 -- The WebMacro team (www.webmacro.org) today
released version 1.1 of the WebMacro templating library. A mature

can be used in Java Servlets as well as regular Java applications.

maintained applications.... read more
