Analyst(s): Deborah A. Hess


Although SilverStream Software calls its flagship Java development tool an Application Server, the product is much more. Unlike many of its competitors, it includes a full IDE for building client as well as server code and also includes a complete set of content management tools. The SilverStream Application Server package consists of several components--the application server itself, HTML-based page and form designers, a load-balancing module for robustness and reliability, a built-in Java 2-compatible runtime and programming environment, a CORBA 2.3 ORB, and a management console for controlling application behavior. The latest version now supports Enterprise JavaBeans 1.1 and the Java 2 Enterprise Edition and also lets developers use their preferred development tools.
