Computer Associates Middle East (CA-ME), today announced the launch of two new, powerful solutions for e-business information management





Computer Associates Launches Two New Versions of
JAVA-based Tools for Middle East Application Developers

Managed E-Business Solutions Enable Regional Developers to Rapidly Build and Integrate Mission-Critical Web/Enterprise Java Beans Applications

 22ed May, 2001

  Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Computer Associates Middle East (CA-ME), today announced the launch of two new, powerful solutions for e-business information management that enable organizations in the region to quickly build and integrate mission-critical Web/Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) applications.

The latest versions of COOL:Gen 6.0 eBusiness Edition, the advanced application development tool, and COOL:Joe 2.0 for Enterprise Java, the comprehensive J2EE/EJB development environment, enable companies to deliver Java applications on an enterprise scale and to transform mainframe and UNIX applications to large-scale Web solutions that are leveraged on proven technology. 

COOL:Gen and COOL:Joe are key components of CA's eBusiness Transformation and Integration portfolio, which provides the application and deployment services necessary to integrate disparate applications, databases and business partner systems.  Organizations from sectors around the Middle East – including those in banking and finance, oil and gas, and communications – have implemented this CA portfolio.

 “JAVA adoption and e-business applications are two of the highest growth industries in the Middle East’s IT sector today,” said AbdulAziz Al-Salloum, managing director of Computer Associates Middle East operations.  “We’re delivering new products to the region that leverage the IT investment of CA’s customers while enabling them to benefit from the latest e-business development technologies,” Al-Salloum concluded.

One of the key drivers of Java adoption is the ability to "write once and run anywhere."  Maintaining vendor-independence is critical to achieving this goal. 

 Analysts View These New CA Products as Beneficial for CA’s Client-base

"Application developers, whether corporate or commercial, all want to reduce to zero the number of wheels they have to reinvent," said Michael Dortch, principal analyst with Robert Frances Group. "With their ability to deliver critical J2EE applications running on any leading server, COOL:Gen and COOL:Joe can deliver immediate and sustained benefits to enterprises developing or deploying Web-enabled applications,” added Dortch.

Both COOL:Gen and COOL:Joe are designed specifically to help organizations fully utilize existing development resources to implement new technologies like EJB.  For more than a decade, COOL products have provided flexible implementation options that give organizations the ability to deliver enterprise-class n-tier applications across multiple platforms.

 E-business enhancements in COOL:Gen 6.0, along with its integrated modeling environment and 100 percent automatic code generation, enable development teams to take advantage of new technology without requiring additional investments in time and money.

"As eBusiness has continued to mature, Java has steadily grown from a website development tool to a core technology for enterprise applications," said Wasim Ahmad, vice president, application development solutions, CA.  "CA's support has grown accordingly, as we continue to bring corporate development teams the solutions they need to fully leverage the flexibility and power of enterprise Java architectures,” he added.

By providing integration with existing applications, components and data through CA's Jasmineii platform, COOL:Joe 2.0 also enables customers to wrap their legacy transactions and expose them as Enterprise Java Beans. 

COOL:Gen 6.0 eBusiness Edition also:

  • Automates integration of legacy COBOL systems.

  • Optimizes CBD methods to improve manageability, quality, reuse and productivity.

  • Enables integration with multiple web application servers.

  • Enhances staff productivity and system quality through multi-level repository functionality.

COOL:Joe 2.0 for Enterprise Java also:

  • Reduces the EJB learning curve by building in the EJB specifications and providing step-by-step instructions for development.

  • Supports automatic-deployment to industry-leading application servers including WebLogic, WebSphere, iPlanet, JRun and JBoss.

  • Enables integration with existing databases, components and Java applications.
