Progress Software has positioned Progress Version 9.1B as their first Application Service Providers (ASP)-specific release, and as such it is targeted at partners who want to take advantage of the ASP model, as well as those interested in general e-business application development and deployment pursuits. Progress Version 9.1B provides enhancements to its comprehensive suite of integrated development tools, application server, and relational database products. It is positioned as presenting independent software vendors (ISVs), Progress's primary customers, with a suite of products and tools to quickly build and deploy Progress-based, high-performance, high-capacity, fully integratable business applications for ASP environments for the Web. How well does this latest version of one of the most venerable application development environments meet these needs? This and other issues are addressed in this report.
