BroadVision Inc. announced on Friday that it has begun shipping the latest version of its electronic-business application platform, BroadVision One-To-One Enterprise 6.0, and that it has formed a partnership with Informix Software, a subsidiary of Informix Corp., to ensure compatibility with the latest version of Informix Dynamic Server.
One-To-One Enterprise 6.0 adds Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition support, including support for Enterprise JavaBeans component architecture, JavaServer Pages technology and Java Servlet APIs (application programming interfaces), according to a company statement. The new software release is designed to be binary backward compatible with BroadVision's version 5.5 applications. Broadvision also said it is developing compatible versions of the e-business applications BroadVision InfoExchange Portal, BroadVision MarketMaker and BroadVision Retail Commerce for the new platform.
BroadVision's new platform includes enhanced debugging and system monitor tools. It also includes a thin-client API for developers to create an interface for non-programmers to modify the platform's functions. Broadvision added a persistent cache mechanism.
Informix ported BroadVision's new release to IDS 9, providing an advanced OLTP (online transaction-processing) platform, Informix said. Informix produces database management software, data warehousing, transaction processing and e-business applications. IDS 9 is more scalable than its predecessor, while requiring a smaller footprint and fewer system resources, the company said.
