*Jeevan 1.0

Jeevan is the object oriented database for Java. It allows users to create a database to store and retrieve Java objects. The database can also store audio, video or image objects.

Objects can be retrieved from the database by using simple yet powerful queries. For fast object retrieval, the database can be indexed using object attributes as keys. Indexes can also be created on attributes of the embedded objects which allow users to retrieve complex objects with minimal programming.

Jeevan is truly an extensible system that is capable of handling very large databases which makes it ideal for desktop systems. And with its small footprint, Jeevan is also ideal for embedded applications.

Jeevan is written in 100% Pure Java and is therefore platform independent.

*Jeevan 1.2

Jeevan is the industry's first object database for Java platforms designed for building the next generation of Internet based applications. Jeevan is built in 100% Java and exploits the rich object oriented features of the Java language, making it the ideal database for developing Java applications on any platform.

Key features of Jeevan are:

  • Extensive networkability

  • 100% Java certified

  • B-tee indexing

  • RMI support

  • Ideal for embedded applications (150KB)

  • No middleware required

MAX! Message Server

MAX! is a TCP/IP-based message server for the NLM platform. Beside many features, it acts as POP3 gateway for GroupWise 4/5.

*MAX! Message Server 3.20

MAX! Message Server is a NLM-based universal mail solution for small and mid-size Novell networks. Its special "POP Retriever" feature allows the user to empty up to twenty (20) different remote POP hosts and exchanges internet mail with Groupwise 4.x/5.x and other local mail clients like TCP/IP-based systems (PMail, Netscape, Eudora, MS Outlook). MAX! is a POP3 Gateway to Groupwise, using a cheap internet account without ESMTP. MAX! uses a relay host at the ISP to send outbound mail, or can address the target system directly by resolving the MX records. With its low resource consumption, MAX! can be the mail exchanger on a single-server system (with Groupwise and MPR on the same machine).

*MAX! Message Server 3.22

MAX! Message Server is an NLM-based universal mail solution for small and mid-size Novell networks. Its special "POP Retriever" feature allows it to empty up to twenty (20) different remote POP hosts and exchange internet mail with Groupwise 4.x/5.x and other local mail clients.
