BEA throws its hat in the ? event ? ring

BEA Systems in late May unveiled a new Java application server that can handle high-volume, real-time event-driven applications.

Managers often lack the necessary tools to sift through the vast amounts of unpredictable and complex data flooding their organization so they can make insightful business decisions quickly. Applications today can't adequately handle these requirements and are being written in costly languages such as C/C, BEA officials said.

To solve those issues, BEA introduced Weblogic Event Server, which can handle a high volume of complex events rapidly and at a much lower cost by using the Java programming environment, they said.

The move marks the company's foray into the event-driven architecture market. EDA is a software architecture that is based on the real-time flow of events. For example, the successful completion of an order process could be an event. An event-driven architecture would ensure that other applications are notified when the event is completed.

WebLogic Event Server has event features built in, so software developers can build their applications on the platform without having to integrate a complex event-processing engine with a separate general-purpose platform. As a result, they can bring new event-driven applications to market quickly, BEA officials said.

WebLogic Event Server aggregates information from distributed systems in real time and applies rules to discern patterns and trends that might otherwise go unnoticed, company officials said. This gives companies the ability to model, identify, anticipate and instantly respond to opportunities and threats represented by seemingly unrelated events.

The product provides capabilities to help organizations leverage their service-oriented-architecture environments such as enabling high-performance computing without modifying current or planned SOA infrastructures.

Plus, WebLogic Event Server supports extreme transaction processing, simple Java programming, the Spring Framework Java development environment and Event Processing Language. The server is based on the company's open and interoperable microService Architecture. It will be available this summer.

The company also boosted the performance of its Java software used for development of real-time applications. WebLogic Real Time 2.0 now has a guaranteed worst-case pause time of 10 milliseconds, BEA officials said.
