Novell and JBoss Expand Partnership to Strengthen Open Source Application Platform
Novell to provide powerful development and deployment platform based on open source by contributing code and resources to JBoss Enterprise Middleware System
“The contributions Novell is making to JBoss in the areas of portal and security accelerate the momentum of our relationship with Novell,” said Marc Fleury, president and CEO of JBoss, Inc. “Novell brings a committed, mission- critical mindset to the J2EE marketplace, and we look forward to working with them to bring identity-driven security to our Professional Open Source platform.”
Novell’s roadmap includes plans for incorporating more open source technologies, including JEMS components, in Novell exteNd and as part of its Identity and Application Services Foundations, also announced today. The joint effort will provide Independent Software and Hardware Vendor (ISV/IHV) partners and customers with Software Development Kits (SDKs) to enable rapid development of custom applications with a robust and consistent security model that leverages the aggregated benefits of identity information across all applications. As a first step, Novell will contribute its Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) standard-based portlet container and portlet library to help accelerate the delivery of JBoss Portal, a component of the JEMS stack, to the market.
Brad Stoddard, IT manager for the State of Michigan said, “The State of Michigan is an existing user of Novell’s Identity Management and Service Oriented Architecture development capabilities, and we’re actively pursuing our open source strategy. This announcement from Novell and JBoss is definitely the kind of collaboration with open source and strategic vendors that we are looking for. We are very interested in this type of strategy that can deliver such a comprehensive application platform based on open source.”
Yefim Natis, Gartner vice president and general manager, said, “Open-source software will expand into a larger universe of applications, in addition to the Linux operating system. This growth will be based on more development cross-fertilization and reduced vendor lock-in.”**
David Litwack, Novell senior vice president and general manager for Identity-Driven Products, said, “Open source application servers are a real contender today against proprietary offerings and form the foundation for a true competitive offering to the entire commercial stack. Working together with JBoss will deliver real opportunities for enterprises to leverage this exciting new platform.”
