THOUGHT Inc. Announces Nutmeg(TM), One of the first commercial class libraries
available for the Java Language.  See products at http://www.thoughtinc.com or
for news readers which can pick up a link <A HREF="http://www.thoughtinc.com" >

Even though it is one of the most promising new techologies to arrive, Java
programming can still requires a great deal of time for low level programming
tasks. One of the areas where this is true is in the area of list management,
which is still fairly primitive in the Java Class libraries. Smalltalk has long
been known as a powerful programming language for applications like list
management. THOUGHT Inc. has sought to address the problem of making Java useful
for low level programming tasks by creating a set of Java Classes entitled
Nutmeg, which have been modeled after the Smalltalk Collection Class library.
With these classes, Nutmeg for Java is one more tool to assist programmers in
developing advanced applications using Java.

Nutmeg features include classes to manage Arrays of information, Indexed
Collections, Ordered and Sorted Collections, Sets and even Dictionaries. Users
can also define a Smalltalk style or Java style error handling (The java style
uses exception handling features built into the language) as well as programmer
defined sorting criteria and in many areas programmer defined Error handling and
Object Selection blocks. These more robust classes should greatly increase the
useability of Java for doing large scale and serious development using Java.

A limited evaluation copy of the FCS 1.0 (production) version of Nutmeg  is
available for download under products from "http://www.thoughtinc.com". If you
are an student programer we have a $49 version available. This 49$ version is a
binary license only and will not guarantee immediate response to support
questions, although general internet based support will still be available to
report bugs. Corporate pricing is expected to be $495 per seat for the binary
release, $995 per seat for a source code license. Both zip and tar files (for
windows and unix) are available for general download from the URL. These classes
have been designed to work with either the Windows, OS2, Mac or Unix based Java
Developers Kits (aka. Java FCS1.0). Applications written with Nutmeg should run
with any Beta runtime environment, such as Netscape 2.0 Browsers which have Java
enabled, or the Java Developer's Kit runtime.
