BEA is aiming to make it easier to develop Java service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications by releasing code for Apache Beehive.

Apache Beehive code is now available here.

The company also announced at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention that XMLBeans, to simplify Java and XML development, has been accepted as an official Apache Software Foundation project.

Cornelius Willis, VP of developer marketing at BEA, said: "Apache Beehive and XML Beans are the most recent efforts by BEA to help simplify some of the more complex tasks associated with J2EE and SOA development."

Greg Stein, chairman of the Apache Software Foundation, also welcomed the announcement: "BEA has contributed greatly to the strength of our Apache Beehive and Apache XMLBeans communities, which can help to foster future innovations and increased collaboration among our projects.

"Apache Beehive has the potential to make Java enterprise application development easier while giving developers state-of-the-art innovations they can use with any platform."
