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.
