Neonet gains Web support
By Paula Rooney

  New Era of Networks Inc. plans World Wide Web integration for its flagship messaging-oriented middleware that will enable Neonet users to create Internet and intranet applications that easily exchange data with other applications via HTML.

The new product, Neonweb, expected to ship in January, enables Web browsers to directly access data with no client applications or plug-ins required, said officials of the Englewood, Colo., company.

Neonet for client/server networks integrates legacy and PC applications running on Windows NT and Unix. The platform enables administrators and users to define complex rules for replicating transactional data between many legacy systems, such as those from Oracle Corp., Sybase Inc., IBM, Microsoft Corp. and Tandem Inc.

Neonweb ensures that changes made on a Web server are deployed quickly to clients accessing and guarantees traceability of transaction responses to users and browser-initiated transactions, officials said. The software's rules engine handles application logic, application routing and error handling.

"By integrating Neonweb with Release 7.3 of Oracle, the industry can propagate applications with confidence on the Web, guaranteeing delivery of every transaction--once and only once--every time," said Rob Cullen, director of worldwide financial services for Oracle, in Redwood Shores, Calif.

New Era also will announce next week the availability of an upgrade of Neonet to Version 3.0 for Sun OS 4.x, Solaris 2.4 and 2.5, HP-UX 10.0, and Windows NT 3.51, offering improved administration and monitoring features.
