Santa Clara, CA — (press release excerpt) — Lutris Technologies has announced Lutris Enhydra Wireless, the latest product in Lutris' family of certified and supported Open Source Enhydra Java/XML application servers. Lutris Enhydra Wireless offers developers, systems integrators and corporate IT departments the ability to develop a single Internet application that delivers content to any device, in any… geographic region, by supporting every major wireless protocol: i-mode, WAP, J2ME, and VoiceXML.

Yancy Lind, president and CEO, Lutris Technologies, said “Through the power of Open Source, Lutris Enhydra Wireless benefits from a worldwide community of developers with local wireless expertise, and thus guarantees the ability to deploy global applications.”

Lutris Enhydra Wireless provides developers with the first development platform specifically designed to deliver content to wireless and wired devices including phones, PDAs, handheld computers, desktops and laptops. Further, unlike other application servers that require a unique code-base for each device that will access the application, Lutris Enhydra Wireless leverages Enhydra XMLC, a technology developed by Lutris, to effectively separate the business logic from the presentation layer, enabling a single application to deliver content to any number of devices. This extensible XML architecture ensures that future wireless devices that depend on new presentation technologies can be easily added to the application with minimal impact.

To ensure that developers using Lutris Enhydra Wireless have the technologies needed to meet the new demands of wireless development, and to address the absence of a global wireless standard, Lutris has included support for a variety of leading presentation protocols. These include HTML, WML, cHTML, XHTML-Basic, VoiceXML and the new J2ME/MIDp protocols required for the emerging Java phones. In addition, Lutris has bundled emulators for many of the leading mobile phones, empowering developers to see how the applications they have built will appear on the phone's screen at run time. To aid in development and deployment, the product also includes PostgresSQL 7, JBuilder Foundation, Forte for Java Community Edition and comprehensive wireless sample applications and source code.

Lutris Enhydra Wireless will be generally available in December 2000. Pricing for the product is still under consideration, and will include options for selected training and support packages.
