Scriptics Announces XML-Based B2B Integration Platform

Scriptics Corp. Friday released a production version of Scriptics Connect, billed
as the industry’s “first easy-to-use XML infrastructure for developing
business-to-business applications.”

Scriptics also announced a beta release
of Scriptics Connect v1.1, which for the first time includes support for
the Red Hat Linux OS and Netscape Enterprise Web servers.


Scriptics Connect provides a complete development and deployment
environment that allows companies to bring business-to-business
applications to market five to 10 times faster than other approaches,
according to Scriptics. The product utilizes a unique business logic
paradigm that provides integration with a wide range of software component
standards, enterprise applications, legacy software and Internet
technologies. This reduces the time, cost and complexity of
business-to-business application development.


Scriptics Connect enables server-to-server integration, allowing companies
to develop
business-to-business applications that connect to their suppliers, partners
and customers. This allows them to automate procurement, order processing,
inventory,
shipping, order tracking and supply chain management. Scriptics
Connect-based applications can reduce transaction costs and errors,
increase inventory turns while reducing inventory costs and increasing
flexibility in meeting customer and supplier
requirements.


Scriptics Connect supports the latest industry standards, and as such,
includes interfaces for COM/ActiveX, Java/Java Beans, ODBC/JDBC, native
ORACLE access and support for interfacing with UNIX and mainframe legacy
applications. The product is a complete XML platform, with robust, secure
deployment and development tools. The platform transmits XML documents
using standard Web servers and HTTP.


Scriptics Connect 1.0 ships with the Apache Web server on UNIX, and
includes an interface for Microsoft IIS Web server on Windows NT. This
release also provides support for the Red Hat Linux operating system and
Netscape Web servers.
