"Inprise/Borland (Nasdaq: INPR) today announced the immediate availability of Borland(R) MIDAS(TM) 3, middleware technology and components for rapidly building Delphi(TM) and C++ Builder(TM) Internet applications. Now supporting XML and Dynamic HTML, MIDAS 3 substantially increases the scalability and flexibility of large-scale Internet applications. Inprise/Borland also announced modified MIDAS licensing that will now allow small- to medium-sized businesses to gain the same advantages as large corporations as they extend their businesses to the Internet."

"With MIDAS 3, developers can quickly create and deploy applications that connect users to critical business information whenever and wherever they need it. From e-commerce implementations to customer relationship management systems, users will benefit from the many advantages of MIDAS 3, including greater control over network traffic, improved performance for mobile environments and increased scalability. The net result is a flexible, scalable solution for rapid development and deployment of e-commerce solutions."

"MIDAS will support Linux when Inprise/Borland's Project Kylix ships later this year. Project Kylix is a Linux component based development environment for two-way visual development of graphical user interface (GUI), Internet, database, and server applications."
