Ingres for Linux
Meanwhile, Computer Associates Ingres Enterprise Relational Database will be released into the open-source community under this new license, as Ingres for Linux. Ingres supports the Oracle Cluster File System for Linux Cluster Support and IBMs Distributed Lock Manager (OpenDLM) to deliver new clustering functionalitygiving customers the ability to achieve scalability and reliability on a low-cost clustering platform, Greenblatt told eWEEK on Monday. CA and JBoss Inc. also plan to create complete solution comprising open-source software that addresses the need for high-performance relational storage in conjunction with J2EEbased Application Servers.JBoss CEO Marc Fleury recently came under fire in the Linux community over some alleged fake messages hyping the company.

"We will also be announcing the industrys first open source management technology stack, IJPL [Ingres, Java, Python and Linux], that delivers the speed of Ingres, the power of Java and Python, and the quality of Linux to foster growth and innovation of management software," Greenblatt said. CA is also developing and submitting to open source its Kernel Generalized Event Management instrumentation. KGEM is a generic facility that enables kernel events to be communicated to user applications, Greenblatt said. "KGEM is a new kernel facility that enables management applications to work with Linux in a standardized way. Interfaces for management software can now be built into and shipped with every Linux distribution," he said.

The project with JBoss combines the JBoss Application Server, JBoss Hibernate object-relational query service, and Ingres Enterprise Relational Database to provide customers with a scalable and fully functional platform to build J2EE and Java applications that include object persistence, cache, replication, transactional integrity, and security, Greenblatt said.
