"Despite ominous predictions by analysts, Inprise/Borland's earnings show the company is here to stay,at least for now. For the second quarter, Inprise, Scotts Valley, Calif., reported a return to profitability, with revenue of $46.7 million, up 16 percent from $40.2 million in the same period last year."

"At its developers conference two weeks ago, Inprise attempted to revive itself once more with a renewed focus on the company's cross-platform tool strategy for Web application development. At the conference, interim president and CEO Dale Fuller announced that Inprise's JBuilder Java tool will support Apple's latest operating system, Mac OS 10. Fuller also outlined a plan to ship new rapid application development (RAD) tools under Project Kylix, which will expand the capabilities of Inprise's Delphi and C++ development tools for Linux."

"If earnings are any indication, that plan may be the jump-start Inprise has needed."
