European users show off e applications on 3000s — In an airport conference center at the heart of Amsterdam a new version of an old HP 3000 tradition took place: a meeting of customers to strut success, with nary a contrary word about market or marketing.

Java/iX struts new speed on e3000The rap against using Java on HP e3000s looks to be lifting, now that the language is posting improved performance numbers in its latest release. But some customers are skipping speed questions altogether by using application servers and servlets on their e3000s.

6.5 update offers big-system speed benefitsThis year’s HP World was abuzz with new products, technology, problems and issues, but the top question there seemed to clearly be “should we upgrade to MPE/iX 6.5?” Release 6.5, unlike any prior release, seems truly to be designed for supporting multiple-processor e3000 systems, which currently run up to 12 processors.

TheDash: Looking at Promising PotentialA NewsWire First Look article previews software that’s still making its way to a first full release.
