IBM plans to release a new cut-price version of its MQSeries message-oriented middleware, codenamed Armada. The product is targeted to help IBM compete more effectively against Microsoft's Transaction Server.
The offering will be easier to install, configure and manage and include enhanced Java, Lotus Notes and Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) support. It will also incorporate a queue manager for mobile and wireless systems and support for the Messaging API and the Open Group's ActiveX transaction interface.
