Rules-driven software tools specialist Neuron Data Inc has confirmed it has licensed Active Software Inc’s Visual Java user- interface builder (CI No 3,182). The Mountain View, California- based company says it plans to use the technology in its Elements Presenter /J, originally code-named Joy, one of two tools Neuron bought from Microline Software Inc in February (CI No 3,099). The company says the addition of the Active product will enable rapid development of Java applications with Neuron Data high-end user-interface components. Under the terms of the new deal, Neuron Data will also be able to integrate Presenter /J with Active Software’s ActiveWeb product, designed to enable companies to integrate their Internet, intranet, client-server and legacy computing environments. The integrated product will be sold under the Presenter/ J name and the company says current customers will be offered an upgrade that contains the development environment. Looks like the company may be thinking of taking the relationship with Active one stage further by taking a stake in it, although this has not been confirmed. Elements Presenter/ J is available today priced at $895 per developer with Visual Java included in shipping versions by the third quarter of 1997.
