There’s a new adapter that adds a new standard as another option for Integrating Enterprise Java Applications.

iWay Software released its implementation for version 1.5 of the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Connector Architecture (JCA). JCA is a component of J2EE that provides the standard mechanism for integrating enterprise Java applications with packaged applications, legacy mainframe applications, and other mission-critical enterprise systems. iWay Software’s JCA 1.5 implementation is the industry’s first resource adapter for the new specification and enables the codeless creation of reusable interfaces to more than 250 enterprise information systems that will work on any J2EE 1.4 compliant application server.

JCA 1.5 is a significant upgrade, standardizing critical pieces of adapter functionality that were not present in the JCA 1.0 specification. These absences lead to differing JCA container implementations by the J2EE application server vendors, which in turn challenged the write once, run anywhere promise of Java and J2EE.

iWay Software’s support for JCA 1.5 means that its customers can preserve their mission critical software investments while not getting locked into their current application infrastructure decisions. Through tight partnerships, testing has been performed with leading J2EE Application Server vendors who have an available J2EE 1.4 implementation.

“iWay has architected its Universal Adapter Framework to enable any service to be used over any channel, now including JCA 1.5,” remarked iWay Software President John Senor. “This loosely coupled architecture enables maximum reuse and flexibility for our customers and at the same time shows our dedication to the J2EE marketplace.”

iWay Software’s JCA 1.5 capabilities are the latest deployment option for interfaces created with its Universal Adapter Framework. The iWay Universal Adapter Framework enables the creation of truly reusable services from over 250 enterprise information systems. While services created through the Universal Adapter Framework can now be deployed to a JCA 1.5 container, these same services can be easily deployed through other channels such as Web services, EDIINT, ebXML, XML/JMS, and many more standard and custom channels.
