Subject Re: Competition to Cocoon from Microsoft ?
Date Fri, 14 Jan 2000 01:13:48 GMT
Besides Portal-to-Go, there's also the
free Oracle XSQL Pages and XSQL Servlet
that have been enhanced with lots of
feedback from developers. No marketing
in its vicinity if I can help it! But
like Stefano, I'm biased since I help
to develop it... :-)
