Comprehensive Open Source Development and Deployment Platform
Austin, TX(Business Wire)November 18, 2003: 10x Software, Inc., a leading enterprise technology solutions company, today announced the release and immediate availability of JewelBox Enterprise Edition 1.0a, a fully integrated development environment and deployment platform built entirely of industrial-grade open source solutions addressing the requirements of enterprise applications. Simultaneously, reaffirming 10x Softwares commitment to lower software development costs for businesses worldwide, they also announced the latest release of their hugely popular JewelBox Web Edition 1.0b which addresses the unique requirements for the rapid development and deployment of web-applications. Both development environments are designed to significantly accelerate developer productivity, lower total cost of ownership, decrease time-to-market and increase efficiency throughout the software development lifecycle.
Similar to its web-application counterpart, JewelBox Enterprise is comprised of two highly synergistic components, JewelBox Builder and JewelBox Runner. As with the Web Edition, JewelBox Builder Enterprise Edition is a totally integrated software development environment centered on the popular Eclipse IDE extended to include plug-ins for industry-standards such as Tomcat, JBoss, MySQL, Ant, CVS, JUnit, Struts and a complete complement of application frameworks and tools. Runner is an equivalent software deployment platform centered on an Apache/JBoss/Tomcat/MySQL bundle. Each plug-in, component and framework is integrated using prevailing open standards to enable increased flexibility of choice and proven future-proofing of the development and deployment environments. Traditional, proprietary, software solutions such as alternative J2EE application servers, ORBs and relational databases are easily integrated into either the development or deployment environments.
10x Software has once again underscored our leadership position in driving down the soaring costs of enterprise applications through this release of the most comprehensive and fully integrated solution to enterprise development and deployment needs, said John Osborne, president of 10x Software, Inc. For the first time, the Global 1000 businesses, system integrators and ISVs have a credible partner they can rely upon to provide the best-in-class, fully-integrated suite of open source software development solutions, as well as comprehensive consulting services, education and technical support.
