Oracle Unveils New Java Virtualization Tools

Virtualization is hardly a buzz word anymore, but enterprises crave new tools to help simplify the administration of Java applications in virtualized environments.

That's what Oracle's betting. In its first virtualization releases since the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, Oracle is rolling out two new applications aimed at streamlining the deployment and management of Java in virtualized environments.

Datamation has the story on Oracle's new Java virtualization tools.


Oracle has unveiled Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder and Oracle WebLogic Suite Virtualization Option this week, a pair of new applications designed to simplify the deployment and management of Java applications in virtualized environments.

The new apps represent Oracle's (NASDAQ: ORCL) first virtualization releases since its blockbuster $7.4 billion acquisition of Sun Microsystems and gives developers and enterprise customers their first glimpse at its software strategy going forward.

"With these groundbreaking products, Oracle has made virtualization a reality for Java enterprise applications," Steven Harris, a senior vice president of product development at Oracle, said in a statement. "With Oracle WebLogic Server running on JRockit Virtual Edition, we have eliminated the trade-off of server density and performance by bringing the world's No. 1 application server to virtualized environments."
