WebObjects 5 info posted by ADC
The Apple Developer Connection has posted some updated WebObjects 5 info, including information on the projected ship date of the 100% Java version 5 of its enterprise server software that was promised late last year:
- The new Mac OS X Server will include a WebObjects deployment runtime with a license allowing unlimited transactions per minute. Apple is also offering license allowing developers to redistribute the WebObjects runtimes with web applications (each key costs $699).
- WebObjects 5 for Java will be available in early 2001, soon after Mac OS X ships. Since WebObjects 5 for Java requires functionality not present in Mac OS X Public Beta, there are no plans for a public beta.
- Apple will release WebObjects 4.5.1 which will allow you to run Objective-C applications on Mac OS X (Java applications will need to use WebObjects 5 for Java). Version 4.5.1 will be available in early 2001, soon after Mac OS X ships and will continue to be available even after WebObjects 5 ships.
- Both WebObjects 4.5.1 and WebObjects 5 for Java feature the ability to create "thick" (two-tier) Cocoa clients (in Objective-C and Java, respectively). The developer tools will be bundled with the WebObjects product and it hopes to provide a moderate-cost redistribution license allowing you to ship the EOF runtimes with your desktop applications.
