LA JOLLA, CA — June 26, 2006 – Caucho® Technology, Inc., a leading open source Java-PHP application server vendor, today announced that OTAMate Technology Ltd., a European telecommunications software/services developer, has extended their Phonewebcam application to support on-target advertisements managed by Caucho® Technology’s Resin software and Hessian protocol.
OTAMate Technology developed the OTASuite, an integrated set of Resin powered services providing support for the various operational requirements of cell phone software such as provisioning, billing, security and language translation. The Phonewebcam application is managed by these services and also uses Hessian for various communication tasks. The new advertising platform takes internationalized content from the Resin servers on demand and allows the cell phone user to interact with them and request more information when needed.
Caucho® Technology is a Sun Microsystems Java licensee and produces Resin, an industry leading Java-PHP application server. Resin is fast, stable, easy to deploy and consistently delivers high performance to some of the Internet’s most visited sites including CNet, KodakGallery, evite and Salesforce. Resin features include Quercus, an implementation of the PHP 5 language in Java that allows engineers to build a presentation layer using PHP and at the same time develop business logic and security features using Java, all within the application.
Carl Whalley, Software Development Manager at OTAMate Technology said, “We have been using Resin for over seven years now for various telecoms projects in a notoriously demanding environment. Resin has consistently provided us with the speed, resilience and flexibility we need to meet these goals, not to mention the first-class support provided by Caucho.”
