Iona Technologies warned users at its Iona World conference in San Francisco this week that some of its older products would not be able to deal with the Year 2000 (Y2K) date change.
Sean Baker, the firm's chief scientific officer, said that version 1.x of its Orbix object request broker (Orb) was not Millenium compliant, but that some customers were still using version 1.34 and 1.35 of the offering.
He explained that the product's demon would not work after 2000 and that users should either talk to the company about it or upgrade to version 3.0, which is due to ship in April.
Baker also advised that any users who had owned an Orbix license for more than a year should check their demon did not expire on 31 December, 1999 too, as some might face that possibility.
If so, he added, Iona would send them out a new license to rectify the problem.
