Enhydra and XMLC bundled with Official Red Hat Linux 6.1
Santa Cruz, Calif., October 6, 1999. Lutris Technologies today announced the inclusion of Enhydra, the most widely deployed Open Source /XML Application Server, on the Red Hat Application CD that ships with Official Red Hat Linux 6.1. Enhydra 2.2, is an Open Source application server that includes XMLC, eXtensible Markup Language Compiler. XMLC is a development tool that uses the popular Internet standards, XML and Document Object Model (DOM), for the creation of dynamic Web applications. Red Hat is the first commercial vendor to distribute Enhydra.
Open Source software is rapidly becoming the cornerstone of the Internet. Linux is the number one Internet server operating system. Apache is the number one Web server. Sendmail is the number one mail-transfer program. Other key pieces such as Perl, BIND, CVS, and Tcl/Tk are also Open Source. One critical component has been missing for a complete Internet Open Source software platform: a /XML application server. Enhydra is this last piece to the puzzle. It is now possible to build a complete Open Source-based, N-tier Internet application that can meet the needs of the smallest company up to mission-critical application in the Global 2000.
"Enhydra has rapidly become the leading Open Source application server. It is deployed in thousands of applications around the world and has an established and active development community. Bundling Enhydra with Red Hat delivers on our vision of providing a complete Internet server platform to the Open Source community," said Yancy Lind, president and CEO of Lutris Technologies. "Enhydra and Red Hat deliver a powerful combination to developers delivering commercial Web applications."
"We came to the conclusion that Enhydra and Linux are the best choices for Web-based application development. Open Source software promotes reliability and quality by supporting independent peer review and rapid evolution of source code," said David Wood, technical director, Plugged In Software, a leading developer of custom commercial software in Australia and New Zealand. "The combination of Enhydra and Red Hat Linux is a complete, adaptable environment for developers."
