Iona Technologies Ltd really went to town at the Object World East event last week. The Dublin, Ireland-based object request broker company added a graphical user interface to its Orbix object request broker for release 2.2, on Sun Microsystems Inc Solaris, Hewlett Packard Co’s HP-UX and Microsoft Corp’s Windows NT. It costs from $2,500. Iona is also offering a packaged online transaction processing system it calls Orbix/OTM which includes Orbix, Transarc Corp’s object transaction service, Corba naming and messaging-event services. Orbix/OTM will also include SSL secure socket layer security, load-balancing, tuning and system administration. Iona also released a cut-down version of its technology that it calls the IIOP Internet InterORB Protocol Engine, which runs in 16Kb memory and is intended to enable personal digital assistants and hand-held computers running Windows CE and other embedded operating systems to access Corba applications running on IBM Corp’s MVS, Unix and Windows-based servers. The IIOP Engine is available for Solaris and NT systems. Iona also has a product called OrbixTrader in beta testing, which can search for IIOP objects over the network. It’s due for shipment in the third quarter.
