By Juan Carlos Perez

  Infospace Inc. plans to announce upgrades to its WebSequel and WebCharts Java-based decision support applications at the DB/Expo '96 show next week.

WebSequel is a query, analysis and reporting tool that lets users query data from the major relational databases via a World Wide Web browser.

The new version, WebSequel 1.5, supports logical auto-joins, importing and exporting of SQL statements, and a template for formatting reports, officials at the New York company said. WebCharts lets users builds charts, graphs and tables based on the relational or multidimensional data they query.

WebCharts 2.0 features a Java API, a Common Gateway Interface call-back procedure for drilling down and new chart types such as box charts, independent scale and stacked bar, officials said.

The products are available now. WebSequel costs $395 per user, while designer seats cost $695. WebCharts costs $495 for a 10-user license.
