Digital Equipment is believed to be touting its object technology group, the Framework Based Environment (FBE) unit, around the marketplace for sale.
The FBE business houses most of DEC?s object technology, including its Object Broker Corba-compliant object request broker and FBE Design Center analysis and design tool.
Other products are the FBE Adapter Development System, which enables users to generate Corba adapters and test facilities directly from the FBE Design Center, and FBE Object Services, which provides run-time support services for naming, adapter control and debugging.
A spokesman at Digital said: ?Digital is unable to confirm the rumours and won?t be able to comment on them until next week. The situation is not clear internally as regards this technology group and so we can?t comment on rumours.?
