Bill Roth's Blog on Oracle JBoss Acquisition: "BEA Workshop for JBoss"

Oracle would, IMHO, kill JBoss, whether through malice or benign neglect

BEA Workshop for JBoss

Bill Roth's Blog | February 10, 2006  03:45 PM | Comments (0)

It is rumored on a couple of news sites that Oracle is buying JBoss. If this is true, it is an exciting opportunity for BEA. Oracle would, IMHO, kill JBoss, whether through malice or benign neglect. Not many people realize that with the acquisition of M7, BEA now has a development tool product which can deploy applications to many other open source application servers like JBoss and true open source, open community containers like Apache Tomcat. This presents those developers that have to work in this blended environment that mixes open source and commercial technologies with a migration path from JBoss to any of the other platforms BEA Workshop supports, like WebLogic Server, WebSphere, Tomcat, or Resin.
BEA Workshop also supports may open source application frameworks including:
  • Spring
  • Hibernate
  • A pre release version of EJB 3 persistence
  • Struts 1.1 and 1.2
  • JavaServer Faces
You can download BEA Workshop here. If you are looking for BEA Workshop support, make sure you subscribe to the BEA Workshop Newsgroup.
