Beyond Browsing, an enterprise systems development company, announced today the release of their free application server OccamJ
(OAS). OccamJ is a pure java object server designed to meet the growing requirement for an application server that offers
vastly reduced compile times for larger projects, and a greatly reduced developer learning curve.
The OccamJ website claims that it is the world’s fastest free application server.
After achieving resounding
success in the field of movie animation with a major Hollywood Studio, Beyond Browsing has made the OccamJ server available
as a free download at www.occamj.org.
Beyond Browsing is seeing enormous success with OAS through its
utilization at a major Hollywood studio. Retained to analyze the
internal server architecture, Beyond Browsing identified a major
limitation in the structure of their EJB servers. Subsequently, Beyond
Browsing conceived, built and implemented a much faster and more
efficient alternative server and OAS was born. OAS replaced an existing
EJB application server, resulting in huge developer productivity gains
for the Studio, reducing compile times by 70% and dramatically
improving runtime performance.
By simply serving Java Objects without the complexity of CORBA or the weight of entity beans, OAS offers a pure Java
alternative for multi-tiered applications. OAS is highly scalable and
supports multi-processor servers avoiding the complexity of clustering.
It also offers multi-threading and re-entrant object support. OccamJ
supports most major JDO implementations for persistence including
Versant and Solarmetric and provides plug-ins for Borland JBuilder and
Eclipse. Multi-platform support includes: Linux, Microsoft Windows,
Solaris, and MacOS X. OAS is available at www.OccamJ.org
