Middleware gives apps common look

Middleware gives apps common look

A legacy-to-Web middleware company has a software development environment that can unify browser client interfaces to multiple applications.

The Jacada Interface Server, from Jacada Inc. of Atlanta, will make it easier to keep up with future changes in user interface standards, said Rob Morris, the company's senior marketing director.

The interface server acts as an intermediary between legacy and new applications on one side and thin-client interfaces on the other, Morris said. Developers can give modern and legacy applications'even green-screen programs'a consistent look and feel.

There are two components, the development tools and deployment middleware. The former require Microsoft Windows 2000 and Windows NT platforms, whereas the latter runs natively under IBM OS/390 and AS/400, Windows NT and Sun Solaris.

The development tools start at $4,500 per seat and the deployment middleware at $30,000 per server CPU.
