"Halcyon Software, Inc. (http://www.halcyonsoft.com) announced today that it is making its award-winning product, Instant ASP(tm) (iASP), available for free to users of Intel-based Linux systems. iASP is a Java implementation of the industry-standard Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Active Server Page (ASP) framework, and will allow businesses and individuals an extremely cost-effective way to create and run interactive web sites."

"John Francis, Halcyon's Directory of Marketing commented, "Linux users gain support for the extremely flexible and popular ASP programming environment, and, in combination with the Linux operating system, Apache web server and the MySQL relational database, all of which are open-source, get a full-fledged web development system for the cost of hardware only, saving thousands of dollars in OS licenses."

"Halcyon's iASP, winner of ASPGuild's (http://www.aspguild.org) Top Tool for 2000 award, lets developers deploy web applications using the popular Microsoft Active Server pages framework, on any Java-enabled platform. Some of iASP's competitive highlights include its support for VBScript and JScript version 5.0 as well as its ability to be localized for double-byte languages such as Chinese, Japanese and Korean. iASP includes full support for ADO and CDO and interfaces with multiple component architectures, including JavaBeans, Enterprise JavaBeans, and CORBA components. In addition, iASP can also be tightly integrated with popular application servers including IBM WebSphere, Sun iPlanet, Oracle Application Server and BEA WebLogic. Current major iASP customers include Agilent, Verizon, Amerisource, and many others."
