"As a network manager at a medium-size consulting firm, I?m often asked about how to migrate legacy Unix applications to the Web. My usual answer is that it can be done "painfully and expensively." It's time for me to start giving a different answer."

"MultiView Catalyst is designed to convert Unix applications to the Web with minimal pain and expense. It works well, especially considering the Herculean task it's aimed at."

"MultiView is a division of SurfControl, a company best known for its Web filtering products. MultiView Catalyst uses a three-stage architecture: the Unix application server, an NT Web server, and the Web client. It includes "face-lifting" tools to make your Unix software look more like Web or Windows applications. The NT Web server, where Catalyst runs, includes user and session management tools, as well as all the necessary customization and administration tools. No special server or client software is required; just your legacy application and a Java or ActiveX Web browser."
