BEA Ships WebLogic Real Time Core Edition 1.1

BEA Systems, a major player in enterprise infrastructure software, has announced the general availability of WebLogic Real Time (WLRT) Core Edition 1.1.

BEA added that the three-fold WLRT would provide 30-millisecond maximum latency on its benchmark application.

According to BEA, the performance is achieved through optimization and advanced techniques for bounding latency. The application will enable senior IT managers and architects in financial services, manufacturing, gaming and military/ aerospace to implement SOA services in Java to offer better performance and higher predictability.

The application will help developers with real time requirements use Java where previously that type of functionality had to be programmed in C or C++. The company claimed that using Java, developers could implement real-time requirements more easily integrated into a SOA.

The SOA and web services will help enable businesses become more fluid and dynamic by unlocking siloed and legacy IT assets and then allowing them to flow together. With the release of WLRT, doing this with Java was not a viable option for these kinds of latency sensitive environments, said the company.

“Before WebLogic Real Time, companies had to write and maintain real-time applications in C or C++, which is often a costly, cumbersome, inflexible and time-consuming process,” said Tony de la Lama, VP & Unit Executive, Adaptive Solutions Group at BEA Systems.

Components in WebLogic Real Time include a version of BEA JRockit that is uniquely enabled with deterministic garbage collection; BEA JRockit Runtime Analyzer (JRA), an on-demand flight recorder that produces detailed recordings to analyze application latency; and BEA WebLogic Express Basic Edition, a powerful Java Servlet engine that is designed to get developers up and running on the BEA WebLogic WLRT also supports the Sun SPARC architecture.

BEA announced the launch of the WebLogic 9.2 product family two weeks back, which raised the bar for SOA enablement. In June, it announced that WebLogic was officially granted NIST NIAP EAL2 Common Criteria Certification and that BEA JRockit-running on a two-chip, dual-core Intel Xeon box-is the world’s fastest JVM.
