"Borland Software Corporation today announced the general availability of Borland Kylix 2 for the rapid development of e-business applications for Linux. The latest version of Borland's award-winning, rapid application development (RAD) environment for the Linux operating system, Kylix 2 enables companies to rapidly build and deploy applications that simplify e-business integration with Web Services across diverse platforms between customers, suppliers, business partners and employees worldwide.

According to a recent survey by Evans Data, 70 percent of Linux developers believe Web Services now represent the "future of Internet applications." Kylix 2 leverages Web Services and XML technologies to expand the e-business capabilities of Linux and Apache. By combining Kylix 2 with Borland Delphi 6, the first Web Services development environment for the Windows platform, companies can develop cross-platform enterprise-class applications that integrate with Web Services industry standards, SOAP, XML, and WSDL.

Kylix 2 features BizSnap, WebSnap and DataSnap to form a fully integrated set of visual tools with advanced compiler technology and re-usable software components. With these components, Kylix 2 users can easily exchange and manipulate XML documents, integrate applications across the Internet, and additional functionality from Web Service platforms including .Net and BizTalk from Microsoft, and ONE from Sun Microsystems. Kylix 2 delivers true platform and language interoperability and flexibility by supporting industry standard Web Service protocols such as SOAP, XML, and WSDL."
