IBM rolls out support for Apache Geronimo

IBM has developed a service to support users of Apache Geronimo, an open source application server. IBM's backing should help to drive adoption of the software suite and provide effective support for companies developing software that runs on Geronimo.

The service, called IBM Support for Apache Geronimo, provides two levels of support to help developers resolve technical issues as they build, deploy and manage Geronimo-based applications.

IBM also contributed some of its Gluecode software to the Geronimo project. Called the Gluecode Management Console, it gives users a centralised location to manage, monitor, and configure Geronimo server components, making it easier to use.

IBM acquired Gluecode Software in May. Gluecode is based on core open source technology from the Geronimo application server. Unlike Apache, Gluecode is aimed at SMEs and departmental users, and is designed to simplify application development by including the most common services for building mainstream Java applications.

Robert LeBlanc, general manager, WebSphere, IBM Software Group, said, "Developers that want pure open source technology can choose Geronimo, and those that want an open source-based solution with value added features can opt for Gluecode. Now both are backed by support services from IBM."
