        The next PLUG West meeting will be held on Monday, May 19
        at Unisys in Malvern, starting at 7:00 pm. K. S. Bhaskar will
        present an introduction to the PIP transaction processing
        developing platform.

        PIP ( &
        is a proven code base for developing and deploying transaction
        processing database applications.  It consists of a SQL engine;
        JDBC driver; PSL, an object-oriented scripting language; and
        two IDEs, one browser based and one based on Eclipse.

        When deployed on GT.M, PIP has robust support for ACID (Atomic,
        Consistent, Isolated, Durable) transactions; performance and
        scalability for the largest enterprises; and unique functionality
        for mission-critical applications that must be available 24x365.

        Bhaskar tells us that you have to attend the presentation to
        find out the expansion of the acronym 'PIP'!
