Anyone needing to create interactive Java applets should checkout
You could do the same things in Java/JavaScript/DHTML as you can in this
tool, DazzlerMax, but it will take you a lot, lot longer. There's no sripting
and it's easy to learn.

I've used Director/Authorware and other authoring tools and needed to migrate
to technology that was plug-in free. I didn't have the time to learn Java
and stumbled across the tool, DazzlerMax. So far it has been a great solution.

Please note I am not an employee of the developer just a happy user. They
gave me a good discount and agreed to recommend the tool in the proper forums.
