PRN: Inprise/Borland Will Radically Simplify Apache Web Application Development
July 13, 2000
"Inprise/Borland today announced full support of native database driven Apache Server applications in its forthcoming Linux developer tool set code named "Kylix." The Kylix project, planned to be available later in 2000, will enable rapid Web application development for the Apache Web Server on the Linux operating system (OS), and for the Windows platform in an upcoming version of Delphi."
"By supporting Apache Server applications, the Kylix project will allow developers to build native applications in an object-oriented, component-based development environment, with Linux OS and Windows OS cross-platform flexibility. In addition to supporting the Apache Server, the Kylix project will create a migration path from other HTTP Web servers to the Apache Server for today's applications developed with Borland Delphi and C++Builder(TM). Web servers supported include: Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS); Netscape servers through Common Gateway Interface (CGI), Internet Server Application Program Interface (ISAPI); and Netscape Server Application Programming Interface (NSAPI). 'Apache's performance, reliability and cross-platform availability have made it the most widely used Web server on the Internet,' said Michael Swindell, director of product management, Inprise/Borland. 'With the introduction of the Kylix project, software developers will be able to bring native code performance and Linux/Windows cross-platform flexibility to the Apache Server. We believe that the Kylix project will become the standard for high-performance, mission-critical Web applications development.'"
