NOVELL REVEALS NEXT-GENERATION PRINTING ARCHITECTURE

By CBR Staff Writer

Novell Distributed Print Services is what the company calls its next-generation printing architecture for IntranetWare. The product has been developed in conjunction with Hewlett-Packard Co and Xerox Corp, and provides a fully distributed print system for client-server systems that can be easily managed and controlled. It will offer among other features, plug and print capability, automatic print driver download to workstations, bi-directional status and feedback, drag and drop printing and tight integration with Novell Directory Services. Novell Replication Services, currently in beta test is a dedicated file system tool to enable replication, distribution and synchronization of information across networks, where the servers are geographically dispersed. Network administrators will be able to replicate groups of files of all types, including graphics, audio and video clips, selectively from one server to any number of others. Java Application Environment for IntranetWare includes updates to the Java Virtual Machine Just-in-Time compiler and Java class libraries. It enables applications written in Java to be executable on IntranetWare. Finally, the company unveiled the next major release of IntranetWare, code-named Moab, which will enable users to chose to use TCP/IP connections or IPX, or both. It will also offer memory protection, a massively scaleable file system, more Java support and an enhanced MultiProcessing kernel. An alpha version evaluation copy of Moab is available now on optical disk.
