Novera Software Embraces XML for Application Integration

Novera Software, Inc announced the latest release of the Company’s Novera software suite (formerly known as jBusiness). Novera 4.5 adds XML support, along with a new IBM WebSphere module, to extend enterprise applications to the Web. Integrating applications between customers, partners and suppliers is a time-consuming and expensive process. Novera 4.5 eases this process by encapsulating corporate data locked inside of relational databases, mainframe applications and packaged applications to create standards-based Enterprise Business Objects. Novera then allows these business objects to be exposed as XML to any Web application, providing organizations with a standard format for communicating business information (such as attributes of an order placed over the Web) with partners and suppliers. By combining XML with its EJB- and CORBA-based Enterprise Business Objects, Novera provides the distribution and management capabilities needed for enterprise-class business-to-business electronic commerce applications. Additionally, Novera 4.5 allows the same Enterprise Business Object to be exposed as Java Server Pages (JSP), Java Beans and/or Java Servlets, providing customers with the flexibility to use and reuse the Enterprise Business Objects in any Web application. This reusability translates into significant cost savings and faster time-to-market for organizations looking to deploy multiple Web applications. Novera 4.5 is available immediately from Novera Software.
