DENVER, Colorado - July 7, 2003 - Expanding on its successful Out-of-the-Box product family, EJB Solutions, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of Out-of-the-Box 2.1, an intelligent distribution of over 100 Open Source
projects for Java and LAMP developers.
This version marks the first release to fully support LAMP developers. With PHP, phpMyAdmin, phpBB, Python, Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, CVS, and more, every LAMP developer will feel right at home in the environment delivered by Out-of-the-Box 2.1
In addition to updating dozens of projects included in the second major release, Out-of-the-Box 2.1 includes the following:
* PHP, phpBB, and phpMyAdmin for LAMP developers
* Support for Red Hat, SuSE, and Mandrake Linux distributions
* Oracle and DB2 integration for JBoss and the sample projects
* Enhanced database selection and semi-automatic switching after installation
* Significant updates for Apache, JBoss, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Struts, and more

Out-of-the-Box also continues to grow in the areas of flexibility and ease of use. Its updated graphical installer delivers selective, incremental installation and uninstallation, a built-in comprehensive project knowledge base, automatic dependency management, context-sensitive help, and more.
Over 100 integrated Open Source projects, 10 reusable custom sample applications, and more than 350 pages of highly-organized, critical project documentation with tips, gotchas, and workarounds go into Out-of-the-Box to make every developer fully productive in a matter of hours.
Out-of-the-Box can be downloaded immediately or optionally delivered on two full CDs, one for Linux (Red Hat 7.3/8.0/9, SuSE 8.1/8.2, and Mandrake 9.1), and one for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP.
For those who like to try before they buy, a Community Edition is available. This free version is a fully-functional, non-expiring version of Out-of-the-Box that does not require a license key, password, or registration. It installs just over 25 of the 100+ projects, including JBoss, MySQL, Ant, EJB Benchmark, Castor, and the Castor sample application.
