Derry, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 26, 2008 -- Sage is one of the world's largest Accountancy software firms, with a userbase of over 5.5 Million users. Java has a user base of over 4.5 million developers worldwide. Before now, there existed no bridge between the two communities, now there is.
Open Merchant Account Ltd, an Iirsh based software company, has teamed up with EZ-JCom, a US based technology firm, to provide a bridge between the Sage software, and the Java development platform. This means that for the first time, Java developers will be able to integrate their software with the Sage Accountancy package.
EZ-JCom has been specialized for many years in a software technology that bridges the standard windows component model (COM) with the cross-platform Java Language. It has many blue-chip clients under its belt, including, BMW, Boeing, Cisco, Hitachi, and others.
Open Merchant Account Ltd, has been developing software for integrating Sage with the Windows development framework, .NET, for several years, and it seemed a natural progression to extend this offering to the wider JAVA development community. The simplest path to market, was through a shared technology venture with EZ-JCom. The deal involves a shared licensing model, allowing both companies to independently operate within the joint venture.
