Oracle makes WebLogic strategic application server

Oracle has unveiled a strategy for its acquisition of BEA, which will see the company integrate BEA Tuxedo transaction processing engine and WebLogic application server into its Fusion middleware platform.

Oracle Fusion Middleware senior vice-president Thomas Kurian said: "Oracle and BEA have many common middleware customers who have asked us to bring the products together. We are trying to do this.

"For the majority of products, BEA and Oracle are complimentary. Where there is no overlap, we'll bring together the BEA products into the Fusion product [family]."

For BEA customers that run applications which perform the functions of existing Oracle products, Kurian said businesses would be able to continue running their existing BEA software, which he said would allow users to integrate and share information with Oracle's own products.

Oracle has gained WebLogic, the market-leading web application server and the Tuxedo transaction processing engine through its acquisition of BEA. Kurian said: "We will take Tuxedo, broaden the number of operating systems [it supports] and integrate it with our database RAC [real application cluster technology] and Oracle's SOA."

He said WebLogic will become Oracle's strategic Java application server. "We are certifying all our products on the new version, BEA WebLogic 10.3, and we will integrate it with Oracle's application server, object relational mapping technology, web services stack."

Oracle President Charles Philips, said: "The addition of BEA products to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Suite will accelerate innovation in our product offerings, and help our customers strategically implement middleware to more easily build, deploy, and manage applications in a secure environment."
