BEA Unveils Workshop Studio Providing Industry’s First Extensive Eclipse Tooling for EJB3 Persistence Engines


BEA Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAS), a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced the latest release of its award-winning, Eclipse-based BEA Workshop Studio. With the final release of BEA Workshop Studio 3.0, BEA becomes the first in the industry to provide Eclipse Tools for the pre-final Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (EJB3) persistence interface. EJB3 is an eagerly anticipated specification of the upcoming Java Platform Enterprise Edition 5 (Java EE 5) specification. EJB3 is designed to provide developers lightweight container requirements and to dramatically simplify development with new POJO-based persistence APIs for object/relational mappings.

With this latest release, BEA is positioned to meet the demand for early access to EJB3 tools that are powerful and easy to use. BEA is the only vendor providing multiple options for persistence engines that support the EJB3 persistence specification, designed to provide both an open source and commercial option via Hibernate and BEA Kodo, two popular O/R mapping solutions which can provide access to and communicate with relational databases. The open source Spring Integrated Development Environment Project (IDE) is slated to be bundled with BEA Workshop Studio, further bolstering BEA support for the Spring Framework within the WebLogic® platform.
