HP looks to promote OpenView apps

Hewlett-Packard on Monday will formally announce it is joining the Microsoft Visual Studio .Net Integration program, which, when coupled with the company's Java support, is intended to promote multiplatform development of OpenView management applications.

The company will build and integrate XML Web services developer tools and components into Visual Studio .Net, according to HP.

Participation in the Microsoft Corp. program along with HP's Java applications support through involvement with the Eclipse development tools effort is intended to boost deployment of OpenView management applications, according to Kip Darcy, product manager for the developer resource organization at HP, in Palo Alto, Calif.

"We have a two-pronged approach, which is focus on both Java and .Net, and our activities are focused on increasing the accessibility to deliverables of our management and Web services assets," Darcy said. "The long-term objective is to make OpenView as a platform more developer-accessible."

HP believes that companies can't pick just one of the two camps, Java or .Net, he said.

"We want to make it easy for developers to utilize OpenView in their enterprise systems and they'll be able to do that via Eclipse-based development environments and .Net- based development environments," Darcy said.

Commenting on the announcement last Friday of IBM Corp.'s plan to purchase development tools company Rational Software Corp., an HP partner, HP released a statement that said it has had, and will continue to have, a strong business relationship with Rational. That relationship is increasingly focused on leveraging the Eclipse.org activities, and HP expects the IBM-Rational announcement to strengthen the impact of those joint efforts.
