Sun Microsystems has unveiled Sun Java Integration Suite, the sixth suite in its Java Enterprise System (Java ES).
The new technology suite is a result of the company's acquisition of SeeBeyond, which has nearly one million Java ES subscribers. Sun said the addition will build upon Java ES's success and position it as the most complete software platform for building service-oriented architectures (SOAs), web services and composite applications.
"With the announcement today, Sun is making an early move to capture the growing integration market with a complete and affordable Java ES stack to address both security and integration, two of the leading concerns for IT managers today," said John Loiacono, executive vice-president of software, Sun Microsystems.
"Adding the premier suite for integration and composite application development to the Java ES and then combining with Solaris 10 further establishes Sun as a mainstream, end-to-end provider of software for the development and deployment of enterprise applications. And we're just warming up."
Sun plans to deliver the suite with support for a number of platforms, including Solaris 10, Microsoft Windows, HP-UX, IBM AIX, Red Hat, SuSe, IBM ZOS, IBM WebSphere and BEA WebLogic. The suite is available with both perpetual licence and subscription pricing. Sun has guaranteed continued support for SeeBeyond's current customer base.
