BEA Boosts Enterprise Java Application Development with JRockit 5.0 JDK
(San Jose, CA) - BEA Systems, a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, has announced the general availability of BEA WebLogic JRockit 5.0 Java Development Kit (JDK). Compatible with the J2SE 5.0 specification, WebLogic JRockit 5.0 is designed to offer-the-highest performing, easiest to use, and most manageable Java Virtual Machine (JVM) optimized for 32-bit and 64-bit Intel Xeon processor and Intel Itanium2 processor-based servers, according to published industry standard benchmarks. Out-of-the-box, WebLogic JRockit 5.0 is designed to allow Java developers to deploy their applications more quickly and efficiently into production, helping to achieve optimal performance through minimal configuration.

BEA Diablo WebLogic Server Beta Available For Download
(San Jose, CA) - BEA has released the beta version of its BEA WebLogic Server. The company's flagship application server, the first part of BEA's next-generation WebLogic product line, can now be downloaded for free. Diablo supports the latest industry standards, such as J2EE 1.4, and the latest Web services standards, helping to allow developers to more quickly create portable and interoperable applications.

BEA said Diablo is designed to provide an ideal platform for the development and deployment of service-oriented architectures (SOA). An improved service security framework is designed to make it easier to set up application security and prevent costly security holes. However, the company has cautioned users that this beta version should not be used in production environments.

Adaptis Connect Enables More Timely Treatment for Patients
(San Jose, CA) - Adaptis Inc., a business process outsourcer for Medicaid and other managed care plan operators, has built its Adaptis Connect Web application on BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 to help eliminate the administrative overhead and financial risk associated with Medicaid. The application also utilizes a BEA WebLogic JRockit JVM.

Adaptis manages numerous tasks for its clients, including approving referrals to specialists, confirming Medicaid eligibility for patients, reviewing the status of provider claims, and tracking inquiries made by doctors. These tasks have traditionally been handled manually and it wasn't unusual for them to drag on for days or even weeks due to process inefficiencies, thus delaying care to patients and stalling or even preventing payments to providers.

The Adaptis Connect Web application is designed to address those inefficiencies by helping make referrals online in real time. The application can also enable physicians to confirm patient eligibility for Medicaid more quickly, and Adaptis' claims processors can use the system to verify provider participation in the plan before authorizing payments.

Upgraded BEA Tuxedo Mainframe Adapters Improve Interoperability
(Shanghai) - BEA Systems has announced the availability of upgraded BEA Tuxedo Mainframe Adapters. BEA Tuxedo's proven mainframe adapters, which are designed to provide end-to-end transactional support between BEA Tuxedo and mainframe applications, can now support applications built on IMS 8.1 and CICS 2.3. With these new adapters, mainframe customers can continue to leverage their existing IT assets through creating composite architectures, linking their IMS or CICS applications on the mainframe with open, standards-based applications built on BEA Tuxedo. These adapters can also play an important role in supporting a migration strategy to open systems, which may require the mainframe applications to coexist with BEA Tuxedo during the transition period. www.bea.com

ICEreader Integrated into BEA WebLogic Workshop 8.1 SP4
(Calgary, Alberta) - BEA Systems will integrate its WebLogic Workshop 8.1 SP4 with ICEreader, ICEsoft's Java Rendering Tool.

BEA selected the ICEreader rendering software because of ICEsoft's leadership in Java-based Web browser technology. The software reduces BEA's time to market by enabling its development team to quickly implement new HTML editing capabilities for building portals and Web applications within BEA WebLogic Workshop.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
