As an initial member in the JBoss Certified Solutions Partner program, OpenLogic worked with JBoss to ensure compatibility and interoperability between BlueGlue and the JEMS, providing assurance of interoperability to enterprise customers. "We designed the JBoss Certified Solutions program for ISVs such as OpenLogic that want to optimize their solutions to run on the JBoss Enterprise Middleware System," said Tom Cooper, vice president of worldwide channels, JBoss, Inc.

With BlueGlue, MySQL users can quickly install, configure and integrate stable stacks that combine MySQL with a number of other popular Open Source projects on their Linux and Windows systems.

"We're happy to welcome OpenLogic as a MySQL Network Certified Partner."
