Allaire Acquires ICVERIFY Components for E-Commerce

Allaire Corp. and ICVERIFY reported that Allaire has acquired software components from a third party that link Allaire's Cold Fusion Web application development system with e-commerce software from ICVERIFY.

The software components were previously available from Allaire's Web site for a fee. The NetVERIFY components are now available to developers at no charge from the Allaire Tag Gallery. The tags provide immediate integration between Cold Fusion applications and NetVERIFY, ICVERIFY's Web commerce software package.

Cold Fusion provides developers with the tools to integrate database, server and browser technologies into sophisticated applications on intranets, extranets and the Internet. Cold Fusion custom tags are custom markup language elements that allow developers to build reusable components that can easily be inserted into dynamic Web applications.

NetVERIFY offers transaction processing for all major credit card brands and for a variety of e-commerce management functions.

"As companies accelerate their efforts to develop electronic commerce applications, it is critical that the Cold Fusion development system supports the best solutions," said Joe Baker, director of business development for Allaire.

"This link between Cold Fusion and NetVERIFY provides Web developers with additional industry-leading technology for creating sophisticated commerce applications, and is part of our overall strategy to make Cold Fusion the best platform for on-line commerce."

ICVERIFY Inc. is a privately held, venture capital-funded corporation with U.S. headquarters in Oakland, CA. Allaire, founded in 1995 and based in Cambridge, MA, is an Internet software company dedicated to providing developers with tools that maximize the potential of the Web for business computing.
