Java ES Release 6 is out there ... Interoperability in there
By Rastislav Kanocz on Apr 27, 2009
What's there behind the scenes is it's Interoperability across all Java ES Base components and multiple Java System Suites. As an one of the most important features in Software Middle ware, Interoperability is carefully considered in Java ES.
It is backed by clear documentation with Interoperability Support Matrix, Backward Compatibility informations and Products dependencies of all Java Enterprise System products. Check these interesting data in Interoperability of the Products in Sun Java Enterprise System 6 document.
Sun is committed to Interoperability via it's profound testing carried on Java ES and individual Java ES product's Reference Architectures that represent a set of defined, tested, and proven deployments, which addresses customer's business needs and demonstrate what Java ES and individual Sun's Middle ware products are capable of.
Although many of the Java ES Reference Architectures on which the testing was carried out are still available
internally only, some of them have been already published and are
listed on Java ES Reference Architectures wiki page. To mention few that are available on which Java ES System-level Interoperability Testing team performed testing for Java ES Release 6 are:
- Interoperability Testing (Interoperability of Java ES Release 6 products) was performed on SAML v2 Using Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Architecture.
- Cross-Release Interoperability Testing (Interoperability of Java ES Release 6 products with dependent products from previous Java ES releases) was performed on Portal Service on Application Server Cluster or Access Manager 7.1 Load Balancing, Distributed Authentication UI, and Session Failover Architectures
