BEA Announces WebLogic 10.3

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12 -- BEA Systems Inc., a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced WebLogic Server 10.3, which will be the next release of the world's leading Java application server based on the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 5. With this release, BEA will be supporting key enterprise initiatives including Web 2.0, enhancements for service-oriented architecture (SOA), as well as delivering on its microService Architecture (mSA).

BEA continues to invest in and innovate on WebLogic Server by adding key Web 2.0 capabilities that combine rich, highly interactive user interface client applications with the rock-solid enterprise foundation of WebLogic Server. SOA also continues to be a major focus for BEA in this release. WebLogic Server 10.3 will offer standards updates and interoperability with Microsoft .NET to ensure that enterprises deliver services quickly and easily. Additional features include support for Java SE 6, SAML 2 and Spring 2.1, which will provide significant control, improved security and OSS enhancements.

BEA introduced mSA last year with the goal of delivering a lightweight platform based on native SOA standards and designed to be more open, interoperable, embeddable and naturally extensible for third-party development. WebLogic Server 10.3 represents a key milestone around BEA's engineering investment in modularity with improved capabilities and new lightweight options for installation that increase developer speed and dramatically reduce the overall footprint of WebLogic Server.

"In addition to WebLogic Server's long-term leadership in the application server industry, BEA remains committed to continuously pushing the envelope in performance and speed," said Wai Wong, executive vice president of products for BEA Systems Inc. "While many of BEA's key competitors have yet to deliver a Java EE 5 compatible server, BEA WebLogic Server 10.3 will bring to market the next wave of enhancements and support for this key specification."

WebLogic Server has consistently demonstrated its No. 1 standing in performance and scalability. Earlier this year, BEA announced record-breaking benchmark performance and scalability results with WebLogic Server solidifying it as the holder of the top three SPECjAppServer2004 scores. By running BEA WebLogic Server 10 on an UltraSPARC T1 based Sun Blade 6000 Modular System, BEA achieved the overall highest SPECjAppServer2004 performance score in the industry.
