Microsoft Releases Beta 2 of Host Integration Server 2000

Microsoft Corp. today introduced the second beta of its Host Integration Server 2000, which enables integration of legacy systems such as AS/400 and mainframe with Windows networks.

The new servers supports technologies such as XML, COM+, and SOAP, extending the product’s cross-platform abilities.
