In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
SourceLabs Completes Open Source Java Middleware Platform With Apache Tomcat
New Offering Sets Industry Standard For Building, Testing and Deploying Open Source Applications

SourceLabs announced the availability of SASH 2 complete with a major new milestone – integrated support for Apache Tomcat. Comprised of the most widely deployed open source Java technologies used by the Global 2000, new SASH 2 is a robust platform that simplifies the development of enterprise Java Applications. SASH 2 includes Spring, Axis, Struts, Hibernate and Tomcat along with all software dependencies and patches. Combined with SourceLabs’ innovative Continuous Support System (CSS), SASH 2 proactively identifies key issues that enterprise application developers face when building, testing and deploying middleware software.

Innovating on the traditional support model, SourceLabs uses diagnostic probes and intelligent algorithms running against a comprehensive repository of more than 10 million data points to deliver optimized development processes securely and cost effectively, while eliminating vendor lock-in. SourceLabs customers have reported time to resolution in mere minutes using SASH with the CSS system.

"Large enterprises have had to choose between proprietary solutions that are deemed reliable but in reality are bloated and overpriced or open source solutions that are considered too risky,” said Byron Sebastian, CEO of SourceLabs. “SourceLabs eliminates this tradeoff by providing the best of both worlds – stable, certified and fully integrated open-source technology that is backed by reliable product support. Now application teams can pick the best technology from open sources and be assured their time can be focused on adding their own unique business value."

SourceLabs’ SASH 2 is a fully integrated, tested, and supported platform for Java applications that combines the most popular Web frameworks deployed worldwide including Apache Struts and Spring ™, the award-winning Hibernate™ persistence engine, Apache Axis, the widely adopted Apache Tomcat technology and all 40+ of their dependencies. These projects all enable rapid development of all application building blocks individually, from web front ends to business logic to data abstraction and key components for service-oriented applications (SOA). Taken together, SourceLabs’ SASH 2 distribution makes the most dependable versions of these projects available to developers quickly and easily along with numerous bug fixes and back-ports that would otherwise be unavailable.

With SourceLabs’ SASH 2 support services, enterprises can automate support processes and initiate key updates or repairs immediately. This gives IT developers a comprehensive and stress-tested Java middleware stack with service packs, patches and includes the ability to reclaim legacy application data and systems as part of the same processes. These capabilities are critical for highly-available architectures where downtime of customer-facing applications can result in catastrophic losses. To protect these environments, SourceLabs integrates and tests SASH 2 using a unique CERT7 testing process. Combined with the continuous diagnostic monitoring of production systems, this approach to support fully addresses the unique dynamics of open source software development by allowing professional businesses to benefit from the latest technology with minimum risk.

Pricing and Availability
Available now, SASH 2 provides fully supported environments for IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic, and Apache Tomcat to give enterprises complete flexibility in deployment environments without the heavy overhead or extra features that are often included in similar solutions.

SourceLabs also provides Enterprise Support Subscriptions for enterprise IT organizations using Open Source Java middleware for demanding, high availability production applications.
