Mercury and BEA extend performance deal

Application profiling

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

BEA Systems will bundle application diagnostics software from Mercury Interactive with new versions of its Java application server and JRockit JVM toolkit.

Under a cross-licensing deal BEA will ship Mercury Diagnostics Profiler with new versions of the JRockit Mission Control diagnostics toolset and WebLogic Server for users to identify and solve performance problems at a component level.

BEA will also use Mercury's Application Management and Application Delivery software, such as Mercury Diagnostics and Mercury LoadRunner as its preferred performance management software of choice.

Mercury, meanwhile, will ship BEA's Mission Control Suite as part of its own Mercury Diagnostics suite during the first quarter of 2006. The agreement extends the companies' existing relationships, that sees BEA currently offer Mercury's suite with WebLogic Sever 9.0 and downloads of JRockit. BEA has promised a new version of WebLogic Server, version 9.5, for the second half of 2006.

BEA said the deal will help users improve the management and optimization of mission-critical applications. Mercury is pushing its application server into more mission critical environments, specifically those in telcos, with improvements such the ability to make changes to the application server without taking it off line.

Additionally, BEA last year began adding features to the WebLogic Server family designed to appeal to telcos. BEA launched the WebLogic SIP Server, designed to handle integrated voice and data communications.®
