Simware yesterday released COM support in its Salvo Impact 2.0 its tool for building web-based applications, such as supply chain automation applications. The company said it decided to add the ability to build applications that can be defined as COM objects, rather than Corba components, because it felt that there is little demand for Corba among its corporate customers, who are using development tools such as Microsoft’s Visual Basic. Once defined as COM components, the Salvo Information rules, can be executed as components in Microsoft Transaction Service (MTS), via Salvo Impact 2.0. MTS has yet to take off – it is currently available as an independent unit for use with Windows NT 4.0 – but the company hopes MTS will play a more important role once it becomes part of NT 5.0. Simware also recognizes a demand for java compliance and plans to add Enterprise Java Bean support to Salvo early next year, once the specification is fixed. Salvo Impact 2.0 will be available November 15.
