BEA Systems, Inc. announced new releases of the BEA WebLogic 5.1 product line, an integrated family of e-commerce application servers that include BEA WebLogic Server 5.1 and BEA WebLogic Enterprise 5.1. The BEA WebLogic 5.1 application servers deliver a platform for a wide range of e-business environments by incorporating significant new e-commerce technologies, including support for WML (Wireless Markup Language) and XML for rapid development of mobile applications and business-to-business market places. In the latest release of BEA WebLogic Enterprise 5.1 all the Java functionality in WebLogic Server 5.1 has been merged into WebLogic Enterprise 5.1, combining all of BEA’s Java, CORBA and BEA Tuxedo application technologies in a single integrated product. With support for WML and integration with WAP servers from market leaders such as Nokia, BEA WebLogic 5.1 application servers enable companies to rapidly build personalized and reliable e-commerce applications for wireless devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. BEA WebLogic 5.1 application servers also provide a core set of services to facilitate business-to-business collaboration over the Internet by integrating XML with BEA WebLogic applications and J2EE services. This technology enables new E-Market Integration solutions such as BEA’s upcoming eProcess Integrator, a Java-based business workflow engine, and “Project E-Collaborate,” a dynamic B2B software infrastructure that allows companies to rapidly create Internet-based trading communities. BEA WebLogic Server 5.1 is available from BEA immediately and BEA WebLogic Enterprise 5.1 will be available in May 2000. www.bea.com
