Sun Microsystems has unveiled a new suite of infrastructure software within the Sun Java Enterprise System to help enterprises address the most challenging business integration and Web 2.0 development projects.
The Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite (Java Caps) aims to deliver a range of business products to streamline IT services across an organisation, leveraging existing legacy assets without, says Sun, the need for extensive coding.
Following its August 2005 acquisition of SeeBeyond, Sun has combined SeeBeyond's business integration software with the Sun Java Enterprise System to create a service oriented architecture (SOA) platform.
Sun says this gives customers the complete toolset and run-time environment to transform and automate core business processes, such as purchasing, quote to order, inventory re-stocking, pricing approvals, travel authorisation and numerous other common business tasks.
Sun Java Caps comprises four suites, including the new Sun Java B2B Suite and Sun Java ESB Suite as well as the existing Sun Java Application Platform Suite and Sun Java Web Infrastructure Suite. Each suite is available individually for a subscription price with discounts for those who buy all four suites.
