Nov 07, 2000, 19:39 (0 Talkback[s])

"IBM today announced it is making available commercial licenses for its Linux-based mobile middleware BlueDrekar on alphaWorks, IBM's online resource for emerging technology."

"BlueDrekar is IBM's first Linux-based middleware based on the Bluetooth specification for connecting devices wirelessly. IBM made BlueDrekar available for free, 90-day trial use on its alphaWorks site in July. The large number of subsequent downloads and license requests led IBM to quickly respond by offering the technology for licensing to corporate and ISV developers."

"Allowing developers to create applications on the popular Linux platform will increase the number of Bluetooth applications," said Daniel Jue, manager of alphaWorks. "We wish to make Bluetooth more pervasive."
