Red Hat announces new Java development tools as well as a new version of its service-oriented architecture (SOA) platform at EclipseCon 2010.
Red Hat has announced new Java development tools as well as a new version of
its service-oriented architecture platform.
At the EclipseCon 2010
for developers and users of the Eclipse open-source integrated development
environment (IDE) in Santa
Clara, Calif., on March 22, Red
Hat announced the launch of its JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.0 with enhanced
functionality to update its JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio. JBoss
Enterprise SOA Platform 5.0 is designed to integrate applications, services,
transactions and business process components into an architecture for
automating business and IT processes, the company said.
As the latest major version of the company's SOA software, Red Hat's JBoss
Enterprise SOA Platform 5.0 features an updated enterprise services bus with
enhanced protocol listeners, Web services integration, management consoles and
transformation, and a new rules engine that can be managed by JBoss Enterprise
BRMS (Business Rules Management System). Red Hat officials said the new version
of the platform enables enterprises to more rapidly deploy new applications and
services while leveraging their existing IT investment to compete more
In addition, Red Hat announced the further expansion of its middleware
portfolio with JBoss Developer Studio 3.0, a new version of the company's
development platform for building interactive applications and services. JBoss
Developer Studio 3.0 includes expanded support for all of the JBoss Enterprise
Platforms-JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, SOA, Portal and Data Services
Moreover, the new version of the tool set is based on the latest major
release of Eclipse 3.5, and includes new development capabilities for building
SOA services and data transformation tools for developing enhanced integration
services. For enterprise IT organizations looking to decrease development costs
by reducing time-to-deploy, JBoss Developer Studio 3.0 offers a comprehensive
development package, the company said.
"Both of these platforms [the SOA and tools studio] add new and critical
capabilities to the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio, and help to form a
broad range of open-source middleware reference architecture, which enables
organizations to address their application development, deployment and
integration needs," said Craig Muzilla, vice president of middleware at Red
Hat, in a statement.
Red Hat officials also said the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is designed to
integrate applications and services in cloud and on-premises deployments,
allowing enterprises to further optimize their IT infrastructure cost and
"Application development within the SOA-equipped enterprise has evolved
significantly over the past two years, demanding a more eclectic and flexible
arsenal of expertise and matching tools," said Brad Shimmin, principal
analyst for application infrastructure at Current Analysis, in a statement. "Services
and their underlying data must be considered together, as do cloud and premise
deployments, as do rich Internet applications and complex integrated services.
JBoss Developer Studio 3.0 melds these disparate concerns using the agility of
the Eclipse 3.5 platform and a broad quiver of supported frameworks that
includes RichFaces, Seam, Spring, Struts and GWT [Google Web Toolkit]."
