BW: Progress SonicMQ Adds Support for Linux

“Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ:PRGS), a leading supplier
of application development, deployment and management products and
services, today announced the Developer Edition of its
award-winning Progress(R) SonicMQ(TM) Internet messaging server
will support the Linux operating system.”

” ‘Linux has shown impressive growth as both a client and a
server operating environment,’ said Dan Kusnetzky, IDC’s program
director for operating environments and serverware research
services. ‘Products which help Linux-based applications communicate
with an organization’s network are important to the ongoing success
of Linux. Progress’ SonicMQ is an example of products which could
help Linux evolve into a generally accepted part of corporate
networks.’ “

” ‘We really wanted to try running SonicMQ on Linux,’ said
Michael Quattlebaum, director of R&D at ChanneLinx.com, a
provider of complete e-commerce solutions by linking industries
into an interoperable digital marketplace. “I installed it on my
Linux server, had it up and running in no time and it worked like a
dream. Because SonicMQ is 100% Java, it can run with little or no
configuration changes on any platform with a supported JVM. SonicMQ
has been great to work with — a clean implementation of the JMS
specification with the added tools needed to make it
practical.’ “
