In order to advance Windows NT Server as a viable platform for e-commerce, in 1996 Microsoft acquired e-Shop Inc., a small company specialising in e-commerce software. e-Shop's software was integrated into Microsoft Merchant Server 1.0, which subsequently evolved into Microsoft Commerce Server 2.0. Version 3.0 was released in early 1998, and added support for Internet Information Server (IIS) 4.0 and Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS).</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/nt-explorer" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue26 tooled up brett burridge amazon microsoft oracle university of essex university of sussex browser cataloguing content management cookie data data mining database e-business graphics java perl personalisation research search technology software sql sql server standards url web resources windows Wed, 10 Jan 2001 00:00:00 +0000 editor 762 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk XML 2000: New Tools, New Vendors http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/xml-europe <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue25/xml-europe#author1">Dianne Kennedy</a> reports on the latest XML conference in Paris.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue25/xml-europe" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue25 event report dianne kennedy content management content syndication data database dtd e-business e-learning html java metadata multimedia prism sgml software standards syndication unicode url video xml xsl xslt Sat, 23 Sep 2000 23:00:00 +0000 editor 739 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk LONGITUDE: The Users in the Digital Landscape http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue24/pub-libs <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue24/pub-libs#author1">Linda Berube</a> on the Longitude project, designed to test a toolkit of qualitative survey methodologies to assess user needs in the digital library.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>"May you live in interesting times."

IIS 2.0 can be found on the Windows NT 4.0 Server installation CD-ROM. This version of IIS was pretty basic, and changing advanced settings usually involved messing around with the Windows registry. Version 3.0 was little different from 2.0, but it did see the introduction of server-side scripting through the use of the innovative Active Server Pages <a href="#1">[1]</a>.
