Java Applets

Tekla Inc. developed a flower bouquet design Java applet for the commercial retail web site Silkflowers.com. The Java applet allows the Internet customer to arrange and alter flower images into a bouquet from a shopping basket of selected flowers. A Microsoft Commerce Server program generates Active Server Pages that invoke the Java applet and access flower images in a database. The web customer can play with the simulated merchandise before purchasing.

For your company or retail web site, Tekla Inc. can develop simulated merchandise using Java applets. This feature will attract customers and give a buyer one more reason to purchase from you.
