BEA And ISV Partners Launch New Management Software at eWorld


A host of BEA ISV partners will roll out new software aimed at managing applications and Web services products at BEA's eWorld developer show here this week, officials said.

Pasadena, Calif.-based Intersperse, an ISV that provides management for various software components in an enterprise, will release Intersperse Management Framework, Enterprise Edition 2.0 at the show.

The new product monitors, maps, analyzes and controls software components and services platforms compliant with Java Management Extensions (JXM), officials said.

Developers also can extend Intersperse's framework to manage custom J2EE components in an application or system, officials said.

JMX is a standard for the management and monitoring of devices, applications and services in a network. Both BEA's WebLogic Server and WebLogic Integration support JMX, according to Intersperse.

Another ISV partner that provides Web services management software, San Francisco-based Blue Titan, will unveil the Blue Titan Network Director for BEA WebLogic at eWorld.

The new product, developed exclusively for BEA, provides a unified control layer for Web services security and reliability and manages Web services interactions in a network, Blue Titan officials said.

Redwood City, Calif.-based ISV Comergent Technologies, which will unveil a new BEA partnership at eWorld, also will show off a new version of its Comergent E-Business System, which is slated to ship on March 10.

The system automates and optimizes processes in the demand chain of an enterprise, according to Comergent. New enhancements include applications for managing invoices and auctions, as well as extensions to manage pricing, catalog and e-commerce functions of applications.

Opsware, formerly LoudCloud, also will introduce a new BEA partnership at eWorld, according to the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company.

As part of the agreement, BEA has selected the Opsware System as a preferred solution for automated deployment, provisioning, configuration and change management of BEA WebLogic and WebLogic applications, officials said.

The Opsware System, which built its Web-based user interface, Opsware Command Center, on BEA WebLogic Server, provides scalability, reliability and security for data-center environments.

Finally, Cupertino, Calif.-based startup M7 will be giving eWorld attendees a pre-launch demo of the M7 Application Assembly Platform, which enables developers to visually assemble applications from existing enterprise data.

The platform supports BEA WebLogic Platform 7.0 and WebLogic Workshop 7.0 out of the box, officials said.

M7 also will announce its membership in BEA's Star Partner channel program at the show.
