Borland Software has released Janeva 6.0 software for connecting .net applications to J2EE and Corba on the back end.
The latest version includes support for Microsoft Office applications, transactional services and improved security.
Janeva now can serve as a bridge between Office applications, such as Excel and Word, and the data in J2EE or Corba systems.
The latest transactional capabilities improve the delivery of services and give J2EE or Corba services the ability to call back .net applications.
On the security front, Janeva 6.0 provides encryption via SSL and can use authentication and single sign-on.
Janeva 6.0 is certified for BEA Systems' WebLogic, IBM WebSphere and Oracle 9i application servers and Borland's Enterprise Server.
