Iona Technologies Inc., Waltham, Mass., said that its new Orbix 6.1 integration platform now offers native access for Microsoft .NET applications to CORBA-based systems.
With Orbix, developers can use .NET to build, integrate and deploy CORBA-inclusive applications without the need for new hardware, Iona said. The company said that the new management architecture in version 6.1 is designed to let customers control and monitor a Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) infrastructure using management software platforms such as IBM Tivoli.
Orbix version 6.1 also adds smart card support, bi-directional GIOP, improved connection scalability using Java NIO and performance data logging, Iona said. The product is generally available on Friday.
