Netscape App Server Will Ship In August

The Sun-Netscape Alliance said yesterday that it expects Netscape Application Server 4.0, planned as a highly scaleable application for the deployment of non-stop, large, transaction E-commerce sites, to ship next month. In addition, the alliance will also release Netscape Application Builder 4.0 to aid with building enterprise-class applications.

Version 4.0, which will ship before a changeover to a new brand called iPlanet, will add support for Sun's Enterprise JavaBeans, Java Server Page technology, Java Database Connectivity, and the Java Servlet application programming interface. It will also add system management options such as Netscape Console and Netscape Server Administration.

Another key, according to Yuan Huntington, group product marketing manager for the iPlanet Application Server, will be the transparent integration of IBM's TX Series, which will add centralized management. "We continue to see a lot of momentum with this product," she says.

Also included will be a self-tuning load balance option. The Application Builder 4.0 provides an Enterprise Java Beans wizard, presentation wizards, database wizard and a template editor, while using a standard component model and maintaining interoperability with third party tools. Netscape Application Server 4.0 will be priced at $35,000 per CPU.

A little over 100 days old, the Sun-Netscape Alliance--the corporate fusion of Sun Microsystems, Netscape, and America Online--has garnered more than 300 customers. Alliance executives say the Netscape name will remain on the browser products.
