Communicating information and transacting business online with equal facility inside and outside the enterprise has become an indispensable corporate competency. Competitive pressures require a kind of agility, one that demands rapid response to global business opportunities. To address these, your enterprise needs a complete application infrastructure for e-Business - one that enables you to engage customers, employees and partners with your business in powerful ways. You need to incorporate and deliver a broad range of enterprise applications, services and business processes - while at the same time continuing to build value for existing applications and systems.
Sybase EAServer provides that infrastructure and powers e-Business applications by providing an open, high-performance, efficient environment for developing and deploying enterprise-class applications. As a leading supporter of key industry standards like J2EE and Web services, Sybase EAServer supports e-Business by delivering faster time-to-market, higher performance, and a superior ROI.
Secure enterprise Web services
EAServer enables companies to rapidly assemble and deploy secure enterprise Web services that encapsulate business logic from multiple applications in a secure, self-describing service that runs as an independent compound business function. Such services enable organizations to more rapidly provide customized products and services to partners and customers, thereby taking advantage of immediate market opportunities. Sybase EAServer supports Web services standards, including SOAP, UDDI, and WSDL.
EAServer offers outstanding performance and high availability, ensuring your e-business systems scale to meet the needs of large-scale, globally distributed applications. EAServer supports high-volume applications through robust transaction-management and two-phase commit. Technologies boosting server performance include dynamic caching algorithms, intelligent in-memory failover, cross-platform clustering, best-in-class failover capability, hot deployment, and repository versioning to enable application roll-back.
Leveraging existing software components
Because EAServer can run Java, C/C++, COM, CORBA and PowerBuilder components in a unified environment, it allows businesses to rapidly develop enhanced applications and services on top of proven business components. EAServer also offers a "No Code" bridge to interact with applications deployed on any J2EE-compliant application server, including BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere and iPlanet. These capabilities allow you to deploy applications more quickly and maximize your investment in existing software assets.
Open choice development
By supporting a wide range of languages and development environments, EAServer enables organizations and developers to leverage their skills and investments in technologies they choose. EAServer supports the following development environments: Borland JBuilder, CocoBase enterprise O/R, GNU EMACS, Sybase PowerBuilder, PowerDesigner and Power J as well as together ControlCenter and WebGain VisualCafe. Also, EAServer can transact with any .NET business component or application.
EAServer can help you quickly integrate applications and systems in a point-to-point approach or can serve as the infrastructure for a comprehensive, hub-and-spoke model integration. Aiding EAServer in delivering rapid integration results is an extensive library of adapters for packaged applications, databases, network technologies and legacy systems.
Real-world manageabilityProduct Highlights
EAServer's unified install allows systems administrators to create "hands-free" deployment packages that intelligently configure applications and the application server during installation. This intelligent approach ensures a more cost-effective, streamlined and rapid process for deploying applications to remote locations. To help you quickly diagnose and react to technical events, EAServer provides a comprehensive and dynamic view on activities inside the application server via support for any SNMP-compliant monitoring tool.
