"Inprise/Borland (Nasdaq: INPR) today announced that Bank of America's Global Corporate Investment Bank (GCIB) has chosen the Inprise Application Server, the first application server to support the J2EE standard and combine the benefits of EJB and CORBA, as a key element in its ecommerce strategy. Inprise Application Server was chosen over seven other competing application servers after a three-month trial period. Inprise Application Server will enable GCIB to expand its presence on the Web and provides the company with the technology needed to support these and other enterprise-strength Internet business applications."

"We selected Inprise Application Server due to its strong corporate support, greater compliance to industry standards, and its attractive price," said Dave Dillon, senior vice president of software engineering, GCIB, Bank of America. "The most important reason, however, was its ability to integrate into the Visigenic suite and leverage the scalability and reliability of the VisiBroker(R) object request broker, which is already part of our current business-to-business ecommerce systems.""

"Inprise/Borland is a leading provider of Internet access infrastructure and application development tool and services for major platforms, including Linux, Solaris and Windows."
