Sybase sees a need for a Macintosh version of Adaptive Server Enterprise in the publishing, science and education markets.On the same day Apple Computer Inc. introduced its Xserve server line, the Cupertino, Calif., computer maker gained some additional enterprise support from Sybase Corp. and its relational database software. Sybase Tuesday announced that it would ship a version of its Adaptive Server Enterprise 12.5 for the Mac OS X in the third quarter of this year. The move is a follow-up to a January announcement where Sybase indicated it was working on a Mac version. Sybase isnt stopping just with OS support. Its ASE database also will support applications developed in Apples WebObject development framework, said Tom Traubitz, senior marketing manager for ASE, in Dublin, Calif.
"We saw a market need that could be jointly served by our customers, and this was a technological need that fitted well with Sybase," he said.
