InnoTek-Serenity Agreement Includes Java 1.4.1_01
February 19, 2003 by Bob St.John
InnoTek and Serenity Systems have reached a basic agreement to include Java 1.4.1_01 by InnoTek in the upcoming release of eComStation Entry 1.1. See http://www.innotek.de/products_e.html
In addition, to InnoTek products will be added to the eComStation Application Pack 1.1. Those include Macromedia Flash 5 for OS/2 and Adoboe Acrobat Reader 4.05. The eComStation Application Pack 1.1 already includes Smart Suite 1.7.1, Appluase and HOBLink X/11 Server for OS/2.
The demo version of Macromedia Flash 5 for OS/2 product is in the Entry product. Now the full licensed product is in the Application Pack.
The Adodbe Acrobat 4.05 support from InnoTek project uses ODIN. This means a runtime environment for Acrobat Reader 4.05(Win32) to run on OS/2. Everything is integrated, so the user just installs the app and behind the covers, the Windows files are extracted and put into the install dir together with InnoTek's code.
The user gets an icon on your desktop (no reboot!) that allows them to launch Acrobat Reader. No plugin for a browser is provided, you have to use the Reader as a Helper Application in Netscape or Mozilla instead.
I am grateful to InnoTek for their continued work to support
eComStation and OS/2 users.
