WebObjects, Apple’s way to create Java server applications, will be ready any day (or perhaps second) now and will be ready for Mac OS X. And it’s up for “Best Application Server” in the Java Developer Journal’s “Reader’s Choice” Awards, which ends on May 31.
WebObjects has won this award for the last two years. If you’re a WebObjects user and want to make it a triple crown, you can cast your vote at the
WebObjects voting page.
WebObject’s graphical development tools, palette of prebuilt (and reusable) components, and integration with all kinds of data sources has won praise from developers creating standards-based, Web application servers. The US$699 application offers an application server, objects framework, code-free development, cross platform compatibility, and an integrated set of development tools.
The Direct to Java Client and Direct to Web capabilities let developers add Java or HTML interfaces to their industrial-strength database. WebObjects features an object-oriented adapter layer that lets users leverage data stored in Oracle, Sybase, Informix, OpenBase, ODBC, and LDAP databases. Go to the
