TellTable Spreadsheet Audit: from Technical Possibility to Operating Prototype
We have also simplified and enhanced the version history interface, so that users with administrative privileges may download, view or audit any of the versions of a file. These priveleged users are able to insert files into the repository, or update a file with a version edited outside TellTable.
TellTable Spreadsheet Audit: from Technical Possibility to Operating Prototype
The user types the URL of the server into the browser, or clicks on an appropriate pre-prepared link, and is presented with a standard login screen requiring a username and password. Once logged in, the user sees a list of files which he/she has permission to view or edit.
TellTable Spreadsheet Audit: from Technical Possibility to Operating Prototype
For security, the VNC password is modified to a newly generated and encrypted password, while this password is also sent to the user's browser with the applet information so the file and user can be kept linked.

Analysis of Using Browser-native Technology to Build Rich Internet Applications for Image Manipulation
It already included a photo scroller, workspace and page navigation bar and it was completely built using nothing but JavaScript. This gave us the idea to do the same with SVG and VML and just use JavaScript to build up the DOM tree in exactly the way as the traditional file based approach would have do it.
Analysis of Using Browser-native Technology to Build Rich Internet Applications for Image Manipulation
Until the Java 2 platform hit the streets, drag and drop support (specifically support for interacting with the native windowing system underneath the JVM) was lacking. The ability to let users drag a file from their file choosers into your application is almost a requirement of a modern, commercial user interface.

This is easier to do with MM programs than with XLS files, partly because of the complexity of the latter, and partly because MM programs make more of the structure apparent, for example the replication of calculations over different time periods.
Ensuring Spreadsheet Integrity with Model Master
At present, both the compiler and decompiler are command-line-driven programs which communicate with Excel via SYLK files [SYLK page]. This is convenient for development, because SYLK is a textual representation, much easier to read and to edit than XLS.
