LA JOLLA, CA — February 12, 2008 – Caucho® Technology, Inc., a leading open source Java-PHP application server vendor, today announced a new initiative to integrate Resin IoC with popular Open Source projects.
Resin, an enterprise-class Java application server launched ten years ago, is Caucho® Technology’s flagship product used in over 7,800 commercial deployments. With a dedication to standards and innovation, Resin has long been integrated with many
of the leading Java technologies. Now, along with the new Resin IoC technology, Caucho® is building bridges to allow popular Open Source projects to use objects configured in Resin IoC as their own. Caucho’s new initiative will include dedicating a substantial amount of engineering resources to integrating Resin IoC with Open Source projects such as:
- SOAP stacks including XFire and CXF
- IoC containers including Spring and Guice
- ESB technologies including Mule
Quercus is Caucho® Technology’s 100% Java, clean-room implementation of PHP. More and more sites are deploying Quercus in production environments, using both custom PHP code and existing popular PHP applications including WordPress, MediaWiki, and
Drupal. An increasing number of applications are added to this list with each release. Quercus allows PHP developers to integrate with custom Java and existing packages such as Spring and Struts2. Resin IoC also integrates fully with Quercus, meaning that PHP developers will be able to use the power of Resin IoC-configured Java beans.
Scott Ferguson, President of Caucho® Technology, said, “Resin IoC is an exciting new technology. We want to make sure that our friends in the Open Source community have access to the powerful configuration that Resin IoC offers.” Ferguson added, “We are writing code for specific projects that allows them to use objects created by Resin IoC as if they were their own, natively created objects. This gives Open Source projects the power of Resin IoC configuration while keeping out of the way and letting them do their job.” Ferguson continued, “We’re taking on the work of integrating with the most popular projects by creating code and documentation to work with Resin IoC.”
“Our Open Source integration initiative will allow Caucho® products to stay small and light,” said Emil Ong, Chief Evangelist of Caucho® Technology. Ong added, “Stack-based approaches are becoming necessary to keep up with the latest technologies. To keep things manageable in a stack-based application, simplicity of configuration is essential. This initiative allows us to do the configuration for a number of different projects within Resin IoC so that they not only interoperate with Resin, but with each other as well.”
Caucho® Technology has earned a reputation for supporting its products by a team of engineers devoted to quality customer service and a rapid bug fix and feature request program. Caucho® has over 7,800 customers whose mission critical applications rely on Resin application server.
