"The Apache project encourages the adoption of our open-source software by commercial software vendors in order to give our community the broadest possible choice of tools and add-ons." Kylix developers will exploit NetCLX(TM), a web application component framework, to deliver their Apache Web Server applications to market faster. Kylix's state-of-the-art optimizing native-code compiler produces the highest performance web server applications. The NetCLX abstraction of web application programming interface services such as Apache DSO or CGI provides a direct migration path from Windows(R) to Linux for Borland Delphi(TM) web server applications. Applications built for Windows web servers such as Microsoft(R), Netscape(R) and others are easily ported to Linux and the Apache web server with no application source code changes. "Apache's performance, reliability and cross-platform availability have made it the most widely used Web server on the Internet," said Michael Swindell, director of product management, RAD Tools for Borland. "With the introduction of the Kylix, software developers will bring native code performance and Linux/Windows cross-platform flexibility to the Apache Server. We believe Kylix will become the standard for high-performance, mission-critical Web applications development." Kylix NetCLX Web Development for the Apache Server includes: -- Rapid web server application development -- Ultra high-performance native code and Apache applications -- Component-based visual tools to maximize time to market and high reliability -- Cross-platform Linux OS and Windows OS flexibility -- Simplified application migration from IIS and Netscape About Borland(R) Kylix(TM) Borland Kylix, the first native-code rapid application development (RAD) environment for the Linux platform, is a component-based development environment for two-way visual development of graphical user interface (GUI), Internet, database and web server applications.
