"IN A MOVE to help corporate users accelerate migration away from the OS/2 operating platform, IBM this November will release two upgrade packs containing many of the Java and Internet-related development technologies dribbled out the last three years for the nearly forgotten operating system."
"The two Convenience Packs, one for the OS/2 Warp 4 client and the other for the OS/2 Warp for e-Business Server, will have support for Java 1.1.8, the 4.6.1 version of the Netscape Browser for OS/2, and a variety of Internet-based communication capabilities."
"All of these technologies ascribe to IBM's Application Framework for e-Business programming model, intended to enable porting of OS/2 applications over to Windows 2000, the top-selling Linux distributions, and Unix."
