Microsoft is expected to unveil further details of Longhorn, the next version of Windows at its Tech Ed developers conference in Amsterdam this week.

The company will be running technical sessions on how developers can create applications that can be migrated easily onto the Avalon user interface in Longhorn. Other sessions will cover Longhorn security.

Also at Tech Ed, VMWare will preview its VMTN tool, which it said could make the application testing and development process faster and more efficient.

Borland will discuss its strategy for managing change within the software development lifecycle. The company said it has developed a product that will enable users to anticipate and respond to change using process optimisation, requirements engineering and software configuration management best practices and tools.

Identify Software, which sells software for resolving application problems, will be demonstrating how its Appsight tool integrates with Microsoft's forthcoming Visual Studio 2005 Team System.

According to Identify, the Appsight Black Box technology extends the collaborative effort between development and operations staff in Visual Studio 2005 Team Systems, allowing them to locate and fix problems in deployed applications up to 70% faster.

Another company due to preview new products at Tech Ed is ScriptLogic, which will be showing Active Administrator 4.0, a management and auditing tool designed to help administrators manage Active Directory security and group policy in Windows-based networks.
