Java fund recipient Active Software Inc has launched its Activeweb 2.0 message brokering software suite in Europe. The package includes an information broker which acts at the central control and storage point. Resident on the server, it mediates requests to and from networked clients and is designed to filter and route various different types of information. Adapters can be plugged in to connect the broker to different sources of information, and the company says the new release includes several new plug-ins, enabling connectivity to databases, languages, mainframes, packaged applications and the web. The new release also includes agents which monitor events and apply business rules in certain situations, automatically updating information across the system. The suite is controlled by a set of management tools designed to let users monitor and configure the system in real time. Meanwhile the company says it is currently beta testing ActiveWeb version 2.1 which it says should be generally available in early November. The main changes will be in the Information Broker with Secure Socket Layer Support and encryption using SecureWeb technology from Terisa Systems Inc (CI No 3,164). Also included will be an ActiveWeb rules engine, enabling users to separate business rules from application code, so rules can be modified without the need for additional rewriting of code. Active is aiming its products at Internet integration projects and electronic commerce.
