Fujitsu's INTERSTAGE Application Server is based on the latest Java standards, and it was the first CORBA product to be awarded the X/Open CORBA brand mark. INTERSTAGE focuses on supporting distributed object transactional and mission-critical applications, and it includes support of four different language bindings, a Java platform-based multi-agent system, a message exchange service, interfaces to an object-oriented DBMS and interoperability with leading market EAI adapters.
