"Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ:PRGS), a leading supplier of application development, deployment and management products and services, today announced the Developer Edition of its award-winning Progress(R) SonicMQ(TM) Internet messaging server will support the Linux operating system."

" 'Linux has shown impressive growth as both a client and a server operating environment,' said Dan Kusnetzky, IDC's program director for operating environments and serverware research services. 'Products which help Linux-based applications communicate with an organization's network are important to the ongoing success of Linux. Progress' SonicMQ is an example of products which could help Linux evolve into a generally accepted part of corporate networks.' "

" 'We really wanted to try running SonicMQ on Linux,' said Michael Quattlebaum, director of R&D at, a provider of complete e-commerce solutions by linking industries into an interoperable digital marketplace. "I installed it on my Linux server, had it up and running in no time and it worked like a dream. Because SonicMQ is 100% Java, it can run with little or no configuration changes on any platform with a supported JVM. SonicMQ has been great to work with -- a clean implementation of the JMS specification with the added tools needed to make it practical.' "
