LONDON – June 25, 2001. The leading e-business messaging product, SonicMQ™, is the first Java(TM) Message Service (JMS™) implementation to be built entirely on Java technology which is compatible with the J2EE platform. Designed to provide a standards-based, secure messaging environment for today’s extended enterprises, SonicMQ offers end-user customers a faster time to market and simplified interoperability between applications. Progress subsidiary, Sonic Software, designs and develops SonicMQ in the USA. In Europe, SonicMQ is distributed exclusively by the Progress Company. “J2EE is the de facto standard for enterprise software development,” said Simon West, strategic products manager at Progress UK. “By passing Sun’s rigorous J2EE compatibility test suite, Sonic Software is highlighting its commitment to bring best-of-breed Java technology-based solutions to today's enterprises as they extend their reach and take up the opportunities of the loosely-coupled world of business-to-business trading.” The SonicMQ E-Business Messaging Server provides highly scalable, standards-based Internet middleware that enables the guaranteed and secure delivery of business-critical data between applications across the distributed enterprise or among companies for B2B exchange. Sonic Software is today's leading vendor of technology based on the Java Message Service (JMS) standard, and licenses its technology to some of the industry's largest J2EE technology-based application server vendors, including Hewlett-Packard Company and IONA. SonicMQ has also been selected as the JMS-based messaging infrastructure of choice for some of today's most demanding messaging environments such as Commerce One's MarketSite™, the e-marketplace operating environment, and GE Global Exchange Services' integration solutions. Jim Obsitnik, director of product marketing for Commerce One said: "SonicMQ's open infrastructure based on J2EE standards is critical in providing our customers with secure, reliable delivery of documents over various platforms including Sun Solaris."
