JavaOne 2006: BEA Kodo Finalized with EJB for SOAs

EJB-Enabled Kodo 4 and WebLogic Focus on SOAs

BEA Systems has announced the general availability of Kodo 4.0 with EJB3 and a technology preview of BEA WebLogic Server. The technology preview is designed to feature a full implementation of the recently finalized EJB3 specification, the company says, and continues it recent tradition of taking a "blended" strategy approach to the growing SOA market.

In addition, BEA announced that Open JPA (Java Persistence API) has been approved into the incubator of the Apache Software Foundation. A portion of the code has already been delivered to the community and BEA is actively working on subsequent code drops. BEA originally announced plans to donate a substantial portion of its Kodo product to the open source community under the name Open JPA earlier this year.

Kodo 4.0, which was acquired as part of BEA’s purchase of SolarMetric, Inc., in November 2005, is among the first generally available products to implement the EJB3 Java Persistence APIs. Kodo 4.0 provides leading EJB3 tooling and flexible support for Java Data Objects.

“Today’s announcements reaffirm BEA’s technical leadership role, as well as demonstrate once again that we adopt standards quickly and efficiently and actively participate in the open source community,” said Peter Cooper-Ellis, Executive Vice President, WebLogic Server Business Unit. “The tech preview of WebLogic Server with EJB3 represents another important milestone in the execution of BEA’s blended strategy and shows that innovation is alive and well in the application server market.”

BEA has contributed in many areas of the Java EE release and led the Web Services Metadata (JSR-181) and StaX (JSR-173) JSRs. BEA is also a significant contributor on the EJB 3.0 (JSR-220) Expert Group. The products announced at JavaOne utilize these key specifications. Its BEA Workshop Product has included pre-release EJB functionality since 2005. Additionally, WebLogic Server Technology Preview provides developers with a WebLogic deployment environment for EJB3 that they can test today.

While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
