The Firwall section of the Jconnect fact sheet lists 5 leading firewall
vendors who support JConnect native protocol. Here are my naive
questions on this subject :

1. If I am using firwall from one of these venodrs, then my JConnect
powered client applet can access our corporate database behind the
firewall. Right?

2. What is the workaround if our corporate firewall is not from one of
these vendors ?

3. Will Sun's firewall support JConnect native protocol in the near
future ? Say, by the end of 10/97 ? By the way, I don't know where sun
gets its Firewall from. It has Sun part number so I assume Sun developed
it inhouse.

4. Any comments on I-Kinetics OPENjdbc-IIOP-DataBroker solution ? It
doesn't have firewall limitation and it costs the same as JConnect.

Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions.

Best Regards,

Jack

The new jConnect3.0 Beta release now supports a form of HTTP
tunnelling which should work with ANY firewall. You may want to
give it a look.

NOTE - the 3.0 product does NOT support the old jdk1.0.2 compatible
jdbc.sql.* drivers and DOES rely on JDK1.1 features for I18N
and Security, so don't bother to upgrade if you've invested alot
in 1.0.2 applets.
