Visual Edge Software Ltd’s ObjectBridge is now being used by Sun Microsystems Inc, Digital Equipment Corp, Hewlett-Packard Co and some other unidentified OEM customers for translation between different distributed object mechanisms, reports ClieNT Server News. Visual Edge has an implementation with support for Java in alpha testing at some sites. ObjectBridge is also going to be used in Oracle Corp’s forthcoming object-oriented Sedona toolset. The Quebec, Canada-based company is now applying its technology to fix a set of problems that are being created by the burgeoning interest in asynchronous messaging. While IBM Corp’s MQSeries appears to be sweeping other messaging contenders from the floor, the problem is that developers are creating lots of different kinds of messages, and while MQSeries and other mechanisms are guaranteeing their delivery, they still need to be made intelligible to each other. Enter Visual Edge, which already has an implementation of ObjectBridge in testing for one unnamed messaging supplier. Meanwhile, IBM Corp has already decided to bundle New York City company New Paradigm Software Corp’s Copernicus translation software with MQSeries for this reason. Visual Edge believes ObjectBridge can be applied to translating between multiple messaging environments, such as Microsoft Corp’s Falcon, Digital Equipment Corp’s MessageQ and MQSeries, and also between application-specific messaging used by SAP AG, PeopleSoft Inc or Baan Co NV.
