Tuesday September 24, 6:02 am ET

MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 24, 2002--All Red Oak Software Inc.® Interaction Integration(TM) products now deliver full support for IBM Crossworlds(TM) and Crossworlds Integrator(TM) through the general availability of the new IBM Crossworlds Adapter.

Red Oak's Application Integration Framework(TM) products - Legacy Integrator(TM), Web Integrator(TM) and the Web Services Solution Pack(TM) - enable all terminal and web-based applications to be programmatically integrated, through the adapter, with IBM Crossworlds. This new capability provides Java developers with the same AIF connectivity already available and being utilized with IBM's Websphere® Application Server.

Each AIF product includes a Software Development Kit and Runtime Environment, enabling all 390, AS/400, Digital, Unix and Web-based application interactions to be integrated into any of the major enterprise systems supported by IBM Crossworlds. These include SAP, Siebel, Peoplesoft and JD Edwards, among many others. This new functionality allows large corporations to capitalize on their massive investment in mainframe systems and extend their reach to the Internet-based applications necessary for eBusiness.

The SDKs also include an inline testing facility to insure that the appropriate interactions and functions have been captured. Any number of application interactions, from the same or different application systems, can be combined, dramatically increasing the power of the integration.

"As a good IBM® partner since our inception, we are extremely pleased to support both Crossworlds and the rest of the Websphere family with all of our products. We are confidant that our Interaction Integration solutions will prove to be powerful options for significant Crossworlds integration projects," said George Cummings, Red Oak president and chief executive officer.

"IBM has always been the leader in integration, with their MQ series products. The acquisition of Crossworlds, with its quality reputation, proves that IBM continues to be extremely serious about the enterprise application integration market."
