Apple Computer Inc. Tuesday upgraded its WebObjects application server software for Windows NT and UNIX platforms.
Version 4 adds extensive Java support and cuts application deployment time by offering 'Direct to Web' pre-built, reusable software modules. In addition, it includes new debugging features and a new multi-tier Java architecture.
Also new in WebObjects 4 is multi-threaded application support for better handling of long-running requests, as well as enhanced monitoring and testing tools to allow developers to measure application performance.
"WebObjects, with thousands of blue-chip customers, is the platform of choice for developing robust and scalable Web applications," said Philip Schiller, Apple's vice president of worldwide product marketing.
Pricing for WebObjects 4 starts at $1,499. For higher performance servers, customers can purchase different levels, based upon the number of processors or transactions in the application, that range in price from $7,500 to $50,000 per server.
