EICON'S AVIVA FOR JAVA 2.00 PROVIDES TOOLS FOR E-BUSINESS.

Eicon Technology (TSE: EIC; ME: EIC), Montreal, a leader in remote access solutions, has introduced Aviva for Java 2.00, complete with SSL security options, making it a secure and flexible e-business solution for Web-based, mission-critical host access.

Eicon's Aviva for Java 2.00 is a Java-based web-to-host solution that provides enterprise customers with vital e-business technology. While leveraging corporate investments in existing hardware, software and data infrastructures, Aviva for Java 2.00 also provides a reliable, secure way to leverage the many benefits of Web-to-host, such as Web-based access, central management and configuration, decreased cost of ownership and ease of deployment. Aviva for Java enables valuable corporate mainframe data to be securely accessed by business partners, employees and remote workers via the Web.

"Eicon's Aviva for Java 2.00 will enable corporations to more effectively deliver customized host access to heterogeneous host environments," said Jean-Francois Levesque, director of Eicon's SNA Host Access Business Unit. "By using Aviva for Java as a background host connectivity engine, developers are able to build, with any industry standard Java development tool, custom Java applications that can access and extract data from a 3270 back-end application."

Aviva for Java 2.00 supports multiple levels and types of security as well as direct encryption with any SSL-enabled TN server. Moreover, Aviva for Java can security-enable non-SSL TN servers with its Java SSL redirector, which can either be installed on a Web server or on one or more TN servers, and managed from a single console.

Aviva for Java 2.00, replete with programming and customization options, provides full support of JavaBeans as well as other industry-standard Java development tools and API's such as OHIO (the emerging Application Programming Interface for terminal emulation), Eicon's Aviva Class Library (ACL), and Eicon's Page API, a unique scripting tool that enables automation via HTML pages. As such, Aviva for Java is perfect for building customized user interfaces and Java-based e-business applications to extend host information to new users untrained in SNA applications.

"Eicon's Aviva for Java has extensive programmatic capabilities - including JavaBeans - which further enhances the appeal of the already compelling Aviva Family," said Anura Guruge, an independent analyst, author of "Integrating TCP/IP i*nets with IBM Data Centers" and the chairman of the SNA-Capable i*net Forum. "The true strength of the Eicon host access offering is that it is a complete, no-compromise family that includes a full-function client, a feature-rich Java client -- Aviva for Java 2.00 "a very powerful 3270-to-HTML conversion solution, an NT Terminal Server product, and an adaptable host print server. Aviva for Java 2.00, with SSL, the strategic IBM-endorsed OHIO API, host printing and JavaBeans puts Eicon in the top-tier of applet-based SNA access solutions."

In addition to SSL security, a Java-based SSL redirector (which is Web server agnostic) and comprehensive support for programming tools and APIs, other features incorporated into the newest release of Eicon's Aviva for Java 2.00 include:

- Server platform independence (Unix, Linux, OS/390)

- IND$FILE file transfer

- multi-language support

- 3270 printer support

- ability to re-map keyboard key assignments

- color display support

Aviva for Java 2.00 is available in French and English by either a user, or concurrent user license, and is priced as low as $95.
