On the same day as Oracle announced that JavaEE 7 will be focused on the cloud, we have CloudBees announcing full support for developing and deploying applications using the Java EE 6 Web Profile. CloudBees claims to be the only company to offer a cloud-based, production-ready PaaS that offers full support for the Java EE 6 Web Profile (EE6 WP) specification.
“A PaaS allows application development and delivery professionals to quickly gain the benefits of cloud computing. With EE6 Web Profile support, CloudBees is enabling developers to leverage their existing Java skills and deploy increasingly complex Java applications without having to worry about the underlying systems and software to make it all work,” said Judith Hurwitz, president and CEO, Hurwitz & Associates, Inc., an industry analyst firm.
Java developers can now deploy EE6 WP applications in real-time, with no interruption of service or data loss.
“This is an important leap forward for Java developers looking to simplify and accelerate the development, testing and deployment of Java EE6 Web Profile applications,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder of CloudBees. “If you are interested in deploying real EE 6 Web Profile applications in the cloud, CloudBees is presently the only option. There are no other EE 6 Web Profile environments generally available and production ready — that is, out of beta testing — that provide both runtime features and development capabilities. Both of these must be present to fulfill the needs of serious Java developers, and are also necessary for enterprise computing environments.”
