Symantec to Add Multiple App Server Support to VisualCafe.
Symantec Corp is to add support for multiple application servers (appservers) to its VisualCafe Enterprise Suite for enterprise JavaBean development. The Cupertino, California-based maker of software utilities said yesterday that it will next month release beta versions of its EJB Universal Framework, which includes wizards and tools to generate EJB templates. The beta will include support for BEA's Weblogic and Sun's Netdynamics appservers and additional support for the likes of IBM's WebSphere and Iona's Homebase will be released as patches every 4 to 6 weeks after that, said Paul White, European Product Manager at Symantec. White said that Sun Micosystems' Java 2 Enterprise Edition standard did not provide specifications for the implementation of JavaBeans on different appservers, so several different implementations have now arisen. Sun has said that the next standard of Java will include specifications for app server implementations, but Symantec hopes that in the meantime its components will enable developers to continue writing multi-server distributed Java applications. EJB Universal Framework will be available as a free update to existing users of VisualCafe.
