Atomikos TransactionsJTA Ships with FirstSQL/J Enterprise Server

4/7/2004 - FirstSQL, Inc., a provider of 100% J2EETM Object-relational SQL database systems, announced that FirstSQL/JTM Enterprise Server, version 2.70 is now available with Atomikos' TransactionsJTA v1.30. This partnership combines leading transaction management technology with an enterprise-ready, scalable Java RDBMS for demonstration and evaluation purposes.

Atomikos has been developing transaction management software (or 'reliability software' as they sometimes call it) for years and supplies products and services to some of the world's leading EAI/EII vendors. With their products and expertise they can help you ensure that mission-critical information stays both up-to-date and self-consistent. Atomikos' TransactionsJTA is a solution that allows Java applications (J2SE and J2EE) to be made reliable in this area: either you get both an invoice and a shipment or none of these. Nothing in-between since that causes either vendor or customer frustrations.

According to Guy Pardon: "Atomikos' JTA software manages transactions across JDBC (and JMS) connections. For our release 1.30 we were looking for a Java RDBMS to ship with our demo, but most java RDBMS vendors don't implement the necessary XA functionality (which is optional in JDBC). FirstSQL is one of the only ones that offers this enterprise-readiness as part of their product, and also the one we liked best. We are very excited about their product and our collaboration."

”Atomikos has worked closely with us to enhance use of FirstSQL/J Enterprise Server with Tomcat and their product. The result validates FirstSQL as a J2EE class database server that fully supports XA/JTA functionality. We are pleased to be associated with Atomikos.” said Lee Fesperman, CEO of FirstSQL, Inc.
