Apple Computer Inc announced yesterday that Yellow Box, the application development component of its next-generation Rhapsody operating system, will be integrated with Jasmine, Computer Associates International Inc’s well-regarded but as yet little- supported object-oriented database. Jasmine, based on object technology developed by and licenced from Fujitsu Ltd, will one day be used as the database element of CA’s Unicenter TNG systems management environment, at least that’s what the original plan was. Yellow Box is the operating system-independent version of the NextStep object interface and development environment; Rhapsody is based upon the NextStep operating system. Apple developers will be able to use Jasmine for object-oriented and multimedia application development; Jasmine will support Apple’s premiere multimedia technology, QuickTime. The database can supposedly handle graphics, animation, audio, and video while and SQL class library enable it to access and update legacy data. The two say developers will be able to create Jasmine applications using Yellow Box or CA’s Jade development tools – or both – which can then be deployed on MacOS, Windows 95, NT and Unix as well as Rhapsody. They’ll support Java applications too.
