The JGenerator

The JGenerator is a Web server production application that can dynamically combine text, graphics, and sound to build rich Flash content. It is a free alternative to and analog of Macromedia Generator. It supports most of the Macromedia Generator features, uses the same data format and the same set of commands, and emulates its behavior.
