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.
