Cloudscape Announces Java-Based Data Management System

Cloudscape announced JBMS, an embeddable Java-based data management system.

JBMS is designed to support slim client platforms, enabling smart applications that are both well-suited to a distributed environment and small enough to operate efficiently over the Internet. The vendor has also signed its first alliance with Tandem, a Compaq company, with which it will implement joint marketing activities.

Suri Harish, director of product marketing for Tandem's NonStop Systems Division, said: "Innovative products such as JBMS from Cloudscape are extensions to our offerings and allow us to provide additional solutions to our customers through NonStop Server for JAVA."

JBMS is currently in use at 25 beta sites and has been integrated with software from Electric Press, Marimba, Rexton International, SoftCom, Tilden Park Software, and Vision Software. It is designed to be embedded within applications that are deployed over the Internet to a mobile workforce, providing these applications with access to a low-overhead, extensible relational database.

JBMS is already available with introductory pricing at $495 for a developer license. From March 1998, customers will be able to download a free limited version of JBMS from the vendor's web site.
