Iona Technologies outlined what it plans to do with its EJBHome acquisition at its Iona World user conference in San Francisco on Wednesday.
The Dublin, Ireland based object request broker (Orb) supplier purchased the two man Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) development tools supplier earlier this week (see VNU Newswire, 2 February, 1999), and explained that it intended to integrate the technology across its entire product line and provide it with a common look and feel.
Annrai O'Toole, Iona?s chief technology officer, said: ?We?re initially going to try and graft it on top of Orbixweb rather than use the current RMI Java protocol, but this is only the first step. Longterm, we aim to integrate EJB seamlessly into our overall product set.?
He continued: ?Our aim is to bring EJB in as part of the Orbix container, and also integrate it with our Orbixstudio graphical application server. The graphical development of components - we want to keep on developing that metaphor and over time, make Orbixstudio into a multiuser product for multiple environments.?
The next version of Orbixweb is due to ship in April, when Iona will also reveal timescales for integrating its EJB technology into Orbixstudio.
