Ionai iPortal Server 1.0

Iona Technologies Inc. is now shipping iPortal Server 1.0, Standard Edition, the Web-facing component of an enterprise portal that aggregates back-end applications and manages content. The server is the final element of Iona’s iPortal Suite, a platform for building and deploying enterprise portals. iPortal Server ships with the iPortal Application Server and Orbix 2000 offerings, providing an integrated J2EE-, SOAP-, XML- and CORBA-compliant environment. The server builds, deploys, and manages portal applications through a structured Web design process.

As part of the presentation layer, a Style Manager feature can customize information according to the user’s needs. In addition, the server provides an expandable platform for adding third-party plug-in applications through visible interfaces. The iPortal Server is available from Iona and from partners including Compaq Computer Corp., Ciber, and SAIC, with pricing starting at US$50,000. Currently, it supports Windows NT and Solaris 2.7. By third quarter 2000, the product will support Tru64 Unix. Iona in Dublin is at
