Caucho becomes J2EE licensee
Caucho Technology, Inc., which makes a Java application server used by more than 3,500 corporate, education and government clients, has become a J2EE licensee, the company and Sun Microsystems announced Monday.
Caucho, based in La Jolla, Calif., produces Resin, which is designed to deliver fast and stable performance under heavy load conditions, according to a company statement. Its customers include EBay’s half.com, Javalobby.org and the American Red Cross.
Steve Montal, Caucho’s director of sales and strategic partnerships, says Resin and the J2EE platform “provide a framework for developing and deploying web services. We are delighted to become a Sun Microsystems J2EE licensee." Montal added, "We look forward to offering valuable J2EE features to our customers and giving them faster web services solutions which allows them to focus on their businesses."
"Sun applauds Caucho's decision to license J2EE technology," said Mark Bauhaus, Sun’s vice president of Java Web Services. "Caucho Technology's customers will gain valuable assurance that Resin application server adheres to the J2EE standard by passing nearly 25,000 rigorous tests for compatibility."
Caucho recently launched professional consulting and training services with partners in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. These services provide Caucho customers with a variety of on-site and off-site options to meet their enterprise needs, the statement said.
