NetManage this week unveiled OnWeb Host Publishing for the Sun Solaris platform. According to NetManage, application developers prefer to develop within the Windows environment because of familiarity and consistency of the tools. However, they often need to deploy applications on Unix for scalability and reliability. OnWeb Host Publishing now fully supports this standard practice, making it easier for developers to build and deploy on their platform of choice.
OnWeb, a server-based, host integration solution, allows enterprises to access and extend host information to customers, partners, and employees in the presentation format and device of their choice. The vendor believes this alleviates many of the problems stemming from the vast majority of mission-critical enterprise data being locked in legacy systems, such as IBM mainframes; AS/400, Unix, VT, Bull, and Unisys systems; as well as major databases.
