Borland has followed partner Oracle?s example in licensing Visigenic Software?s Visibroker object request broker (Orb) for Java, to integrate into its forthcoming J-Builder Java development tool.
J-Builder will be based on version 1.1 of the Java Developers Kit and will be available in beta form on Borland?s Web site from the end of March. It is due to ship in the third quarter of this year.
Nigel Brown, Borland?s UK sales and marketing director, said: ?As Oracle chose to integrate our J-Builder technology into its development tools, it made sense to license Visigenic?s Orb because we?ll be using the same software. But, we considered an Orb to be an important piece of technology because it provides developers with an underlying infrastructure to work around. If they didn?t have it, they would have to define everything in Java themselves.?
