Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

SanFrancisco, IBM's application business components for Java, has now reached version 3 with the addition of accounts receivable/accounts payable, multiple currency support and additional platform support. IBM's approach differs sharply from components for specific industries, the route adopted by most other vendors including Microsoft. It is perhaps an order of magnitude more difficult to write frameworks for general use, and indicative of IBM's focus on conglomerates that may wish to use its components across different industries to give more uniform financial control. Apart from AIX, NT and OS/400, the additional platforms supported are Solaris, HP-UX and Siemens Reliant Unix using Oracle. There are some 750,000 lines of Java code and 800 components. Next year, SanFrancisco will migrate to Enterprise Java Beans, as will all IBM's middleware and server products as the EJB spec matures. IBM plans the migration by means of native interfaces. IBM says the components can run on any EJB-compliant server, which shows just how far IBM has changed since its proprietary days. IBM's purpose in developing SanFrancisco is -- apart from making money -- to make it possible for developers to mix and match server-side components to build electronic business applications. IBM's VisualAge for Java has wizards that were designed to work with SanFrancisco to help developers extend the frameworks to applications. Some 700 ISVs have licensed the technology. ® click for more stories
