"Over the next few weeks, IBM plans to release open-source code for a Linux edition of its emerging Sash Weblications development environment from the www.gnome.org Web site, plus "Weblication" plug-ins that will include a Lotus Notes client. The Sash Weblication software is one of a dozen Linux-oriented projects completed this summer by a group of IBM interns, including a Linux client for WorkSpace on Demand (WSoD) and new Enterprise Javabeans (EJBs) for distributing streaming video over the Internet...."

"Also in alpha, the Linux version of Weblications works with both Gnome and KDE--two emerging desktop environments for Linux."

"Under IBM's vision for Sash, non-programmers will be able to produce complicated applications for a variety of desktop and mobile operating systems, largely by pointing and clicking. Sash consists of two main components: a template-based toolkit and a "Weblication" runtime environment. End users will be able to automatically install a Weblication by downloading a plug-in from the Web, a la Real Player, for instance."
