IF Computer announces MINERVA, a commercial Prolog compiler implemented in Java. It produces Java stand-alones and applets that are executable in Web browsers such as Netscape and Internet Explorer.
Application areas include government services, help desks, intelligent Web front ends, and sales support. Advantages of MINERVA: reduced network traffic for interactive applications, faster response times, reduced server load, and client privacy protection.
MINERVA's client-side processing complements the IntelligentWeb http/cgi-bin interface library developed by IF/Prolog for server-side processing.
MINERVA is available for licensing as an end-user or OEM software product. IF Computer also invites proposals for joint research projects using MINERVA.
