The WebLogic Enterprise
Server has been integrated with the company's Integration and Portal software, and Workshop Java web services development environment.
The BEA WebLogic Enterprise
Platform[TM], a unified software infrastructure, was developed in response to customers' demands for a simpler way to develop, deploy, integrate, and manage enterprise applications and Web Services.
BEA customers can optimise their investment in the BEA WebLogic Enterprise
Platform * by using the new WebTrends solutions, offered as a software package or hosted service.
Other new features include integration with several development tools and leading databases, dynamic operations management to enable high availability and enhanced integration with the company's TUXEDO and WebLogic Enterprise
Coleman said that BEA is clearly the leader in bringing Enterprise Java Beans technology to the enterprise and that while its Tuxedo software remains the leading transactional e-commerce platform, the future is clearly WebLogic Enterprise
which combines Tuxedo and the web application server.
Earlier this week, BEA released version 4.2 of its WebLogic Enterprise
In the next phase of development, BEA will integrate TopEnd with WebLogic Enterprise
Edition to provide users with multi-threading, additional industry standard security plug-ins and then add messaging features in the form of an API to MessageQ further out.
As previously indicated, it's also going to merge its WebLogic application server with the Tuxedo-based M3 object transaction middleware under the WebLogic Enterprise
brand, demonstrating just how important the WebLogic acquisition will be to its business.
