Officials at BEA, in San Jose, Calif., said BEA SALT 1.1 is based on a configuration-driven model that presents existing Tuxedo services as Web services with no coding needed.
BEA SALT is a separately licensed product that runs on top of Tuxedo.
BEA SALT complies with most primary Web services specifications: Web Services-ReliableMessaging and Web Services-Addressing, SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) 1.1, SOAP 1.2, and WSDL (Web Services Description Language) 1.1, allowing BEA SALT to interoperate with other Web service products and development tool kits.
Company officials said BEA SALT complies with Web services specifications such as WS-ReliableMessaging, WS-Addressing, Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) 1.1, SOAP 1.2, and Web Services Description Language (WSDL) 1.1, which enables the BEA SALT technology to interoperate with other Web service products and development toolkits.
The company said BEA SALT 1.1 provides SOA-enabling technology for large vertical applications in industries such as financial services, insurance, manufacturing, retail and government.
The technology is available for download from BEA and the company is expected to officially announce BEA SALT 1.1 later in September, sources said.
