Microsoft and upstart Web application server maker NetDynamics, have announced a partnership to help drive NT into the enterprise. NetDynamics will extend Microsoft's version of Java onto the server by supporting the Microsoft JVM (Java virtual machine) in an upgrade of the NetDynamics 4.0 server. NetDynamics will also supply components to bridge Micro-soft's COM (Component Object Model) and CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture). The new version of NetDynamics, optimised for the Microsoft JVM and including a COM Platform Adapter Component, will ship next quarter. The partnership is a win for users looking to more easily tie Unix and mainframe servers to Windows NT-based departments or intranets.
