IBM nudges back release of WebSphere 5.0

by Volker Weber

IBM has pushed back the release date for Version 5.0 of its WebSphere application server, saying it "reprioritized" its schedule in order to bring related development tools to market more quickly. Analysts said the one-month to two-month delay shouldn't be seen as a big setback.

IBM now expects to deliver the new product by the end of November, said IBM spokesman Steven Eisenstadt. The new version of WebSphere Studio will be released in September, including a beta version of the new application server runtime. General availability for WebSphere Application Server Version 5.0 is now scheduled for 30 to 60 days after that, Eisenstadt said.
