For Immediate Release
Middleware for the Mac and more! Jiiva announces RapidMQ Beta 3 with
support for Sun Solaris and Red Hat Linux
Beaverton, OR (August 17, 2001) – Jiiva, Inc., announces a Beta 3 release
of RapidMQ available for immediate download from www.jiiva.com/rapidmq.
Messaging & Queuing is quickly becoming the technology of choice for
computer network communications. With the unreliability of the global
Internet and uncertainty of end users being connected to the Internet,
software programs need a technology with an inherent ability to store,
forward, and listen for information. RapidMQ is the first Messaging &
Queuing technology designed for Mac OS X.
RapidMQ Beta 3 now includes support for Red Hat Linux version 7 and Sun
Solaris version 8. This is a very exciting step in RapidMQ’s evolution.
Middleware is most helpful in heterogeneous computing environments where
programs on different platforms require communication. Linux and Solaris
are used predominantly in server environments giving Mac OS X applications
the ability to communicate with a company’s existing Linux and Solaris
Downloading RapidMQ Beta 3 allows developers to learn about RapidMQ’s
features and provide an opportunity to get a head start in making plans to
incorporate RapidMQ technology into current and future software
applications. RapidMQ Beta 3 for Mac OS X contains C APIs, several server
agents, an administrative application, preliminary documentation, and many
example programs. RapidMQ Beta 3 for Red Hat Linux and Sun Solaris contains
C APIs, several server agents, and installation instructions. Beta users
are encouraged to provide feedback, helping to ensure RapidMQ Version 1.0
includes features that meet their needs.
Jiiva believes this Messaging & Queuing technology should be available and
affordable to all types and levels of software developers. Jiiva will sell
RapidMQ cheaper than current Messaging & Queuing products, many of which
are priced between three thousand and twenty-five thousand dollars for a
single server license. Although RapidMQ pricing is not available at this
time, Jiiva believes lower prices will allow more software development
companies to take advantage of the Messaging & Queuing technology by
integrating RapidMQ into numerous software programs.
“Developers let us know they wanted RapidMQ on Solaris and Linux and we
delivered,” says Jiiva president , Mark Ericksen. “Here at Jiiva, we strive
to provide our customers with solutions they need and we look forward to
fulfilling more user feedback as RapidMQ continues to grow.”
Jiiva’s overall mission is to produce high-quality software systems and
applications, making Jiiva’s software an integral piece of software systems
developed by other companies. Jiiva plans to become a leading software
manufacturer in the middleware software industry by outpacing the
competition in terms of product features, technological innovations, and
Jiiva, Inc., is a software development company dedicated to making software
development faster, easier, and cheaper. Quality design and quality code
are Jiiva’s strength and main focus. Software design is our passion.
