Sun and BEA Systems will distribute an evaluation version of BEA WebLogic Server 7.0 with the SolarisTM 9 Operating Environment (Solaris OE) System Administrator's Kit. BEA will offer a six-month trial license with each WebLogic Server 7.0 distributed via the Solaris 9 OE System Administrator's Kit to maximize customer choice for JavaTM 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EETM) application servers for enterprise and Web Services.

Solaris 9 OE is a key component of the SunTM Open Net Environment (Sun ONE), an open, integratable product portfolio designed to enable the development and delivery of JavaTM technology Web Services. The initiative demonstrates BEA and the J2EE platform technology alignment as well as commitment to customer choice and success. Advantages for customers include speed of deployment, solution flexibility, interoperability, profitability and 24x7 operations.

"This initiative strengthens our relationship and underscores our commitment to customers to increase choice and reduce cost and time to deployment," said Stuart Wells, senior vice president, Sun, Market Development Organization. "By delivering a six-month trial version of BEA WebLogic Server 7.0 with every Solaris 9 OE kit, along with the pre-loaded, fully integrated SunTM ONE Application Server 7, Platform Edition, customers can realize the immediate benefit of choice and the open, integratable approach to enterprise and net-based computing." (The Sun ONE Application Server was formerly the iPlanetTM Application Server.)

BEA WebLogic Server 7.0 supports the J2EE platform 1.3 and provides customers with the standards-based services necessary to build scalable, loosely coupled, and reliable J2EE platform applications and Web Services. New Web Services features of the BEA WebLogic Server 7.0 include integration with BEA WebLogic Workshop, a Web Services development tool based on BEA WebLogic Server 7.0. It also includes an auto-typer utility and SOAP handlers. For additional new features, see the BEA Web page.
