Sun partner shows off Java apps

A Chicago consulting company showed off a new Java application that lets Web users search for online information much faster.

Neoglyphics Media Corporation has offered a tantalizing glimpse of the possibilities of Java 1.0.

The systems integration and consulting company has developed a sophisticated Java 1.0-based search engine that can dramatically speed information queries, said Rob Brenner, an account executive with the Chicago company.

In addition, the company is currently working on a Java application that allows disparate databases from companies such as Oracle, Sybase, and Informix to exchange data more easily. Traditionally, exchanging data among disparate databases has been difficult because each vendor uses a different flavor of query language.

Neoglyphics works closely with Sun Microsystems, Oracle, and Netscape Communications, said Brenner.
