Visix also announced the general availability of Vibe DE for Macintosh, OS/2, Windows NT Alpha, HP-UX and IRIX. Vibe DE is already available for development on Windows 95, Windows NT x86, Linux, AIX and Solaris.

Vibe Enterprise enables Java developers to build powerful database applications. Vibe Enterprise leverages Vibe DE, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) with a collection of powerful classes used to build and deploy Java-based business solutions ranging from standalone departmental applications to sophisticated distributed applications.

The Vibe IDE includes an intuitive user interface, a compiler, debugger, editing tools, interface construction tools and extensive runtime classes. It enables developers to do rapid prototyping, immediate testing and development of business-critical Java applications for deployment across multiple desktop and server platforms. Vibe Enterprise adds additional tools and classes for Forms and Fields, database connectivity and a Graphical Query Builder.

Vibe is designed to maximize code reuse by leveraging Visix's mature foundation classes, which also form the basis of Visix's flagship C/C++ product, the Galaxy Application Environment. To gain additional productivity through reuse, Vibe enables organizations to incorporate their investments in standard distributed object technologies through application integration with ActiveX controls.

Vibe DE is available at the introductory price of US$49.95. Vibe Enterprise is available at US$1995.00.

Blue World Technology Acquired by Claris

Blue World Communications, Inc. and Claris Corporation announced that Blue World's Lasso for Web-enabling databases has been integrated into FileMaker Pro 4.0 for Windows 95, Windows NT, Windows 3.1 and Mac OS from Claris Corporation. Under the terms of the agreement, Claris has acquired the Lasso technology and licensed certain rights back to Blue World. Blue World plans to continue enhancing Lasso and distributing new versions of Lasso as a commercial product.

FileMaker Pro 4.0 embeds a subset of Lasso 2.0 technology as FileMaker Pro's web companion. This integration provides FileMaker Pro 4.0 owners with out-of-the-box Web database publishing and server capabilities.

Blue World will continue to sell the full Lasso 2.0 product to users of both FileMaker Pro 3.0 and FileMaker Pro 4.0 for Mac OS. Lasso 2.0 Web-enables FileMaker Pro 3.0 and a Lasso 2.0 Server version adds a stand-alone Web server with integrated Lasso 2.0 CGI.

Lasso 2.0 also provides additional features for FileMaker Pro 4.0 databases beyond what is included in the new version, including an "inline" command to process multiple database operations within a single HTML file; a "log" command to log traffic statistics to target databases and/or text files; and Apple Event control of other server applications.

New InterLok Version Extends PACE Anti-Piracy Leadership in Software Authorization

PACE Anti-Piracy has introduced Version 1.0.2 of its InterLok Software Authorization System. This update to InterLok for Macintosh and InterLok Pro for Macintosh, PACE's software-only packages for turnkey trialware creation and copy protection, includes improvements to InterLok's anti-hacking mechanisms as well as bug fixes. In addition, this release adds to InterLok Pro the ability to protect data files in association with an application, along with PowerPC-native encryption and decryption routines for enhanced performance for Power Macintosh users.

The new data file protection capability extends the power of InterLok Pro to developers who wish to distribute secure versions of their run-time database solutions. For example, developers of FileMaker Pro solutions can now use InterLok Pro to easily create time-limited trialware versions of their products, and then enable them remotely by means of a machine-unique key, ensuring that they collect revenue when their products are used.
