Sybase is jumping on the Internet electronic commerce bandwaggon to develop its own server-based product, codenamed Jaguar.
Although the rest of the market, including Oracle, announced their offerings several months ago, Sybase?s product is likely to appear in roughly the same timescales - in the first half of next year.
Jaguar will be based on an object request broker, compliant with the Corba standard, that Sybase is building internally, but will also support Microsoft?s rival Dcom technology. It will include transaction software that was created inhouse and run on a separate machine from the Web server.
Programmers will be able to develop applications based on ActiveX and Java Beans, but Sybase will also supply tools for such functions as building store fronts. These will form part of its Net.impact family of Web development tools.
Andy Bellinger, Sybase?s database product marketing manager, said: ?Jaguar will deliver the foundation for undertaking transactions on the Internet. It can manage transaction response times, handle connection management and application administration, and it?s intended to give developers an easy means of developing scalable application server applications for commerce on the Internet.?
