News: HydraSCA released, enables SOA based on SCA

  1. HydraSCA released, enables SOA based on SCA (3 messages)

    Rogue Wave Software has announced the release of Rogue Wave HydraSCA, a service grid for deploying high performance Service Oriented Architecture applications based on the Service Component Architecture (SCA) specification. HydraSCA, the latest release in the Rogue Wave Hydra Suite, allows developers to increase application performance and scalability and reduce costs by taking full advantage of multi-core hardware while preserving existing technology investments. Growing businesses rely on the speed and agility of their IT systems. Many of these businesses will introduce multi-core CPUs to give servers more power and scale. Unfortunately, many mission-critical enterprise applications were not designed to take full advantage of multi-core architecture. Without architecting software to take advantage of multi-core servers in today’s business environment, applications cannot maximize performance and scalability. This can inhibit business growth, diminish customer experiences and delay product delivery. Rogue Wave HydraSCA can address all of these issues. As the first service grid based on Software Pipelines, a methodology designed to leverage concurrent computing to deliver high performance business applications, Rogue Wave HydraSCA allows developers to tie existing components together in a powerful, agile business process and run them concurrently – without rewriting for multi-threading. HydraSCA is the latest release in the Rogue Wave Hydra Suite and is the first high performance service grid based on SCA specification. The completion of the SCA 1.0 specification was announced in March 2007 by the Open SOA Collaboration, an informal group of industry leaders, which includes Rogue Wave Software. SCA significantly reduces the complexity commonly associated with SOA by simplifying the creation and composition of services regardless of programming languages, including Java, C++ and BPEL. Rogue Wave HydraSCA enables application developers to quickly increase performance and scalability of an individual service or a globally distributed application by employing concurrently running services – all without requiring special expertise in multi-threaded programming. Rogue Wave Hydra Suite delivers the first high performance implementations of the Service Component Architecture (SCA) and Service Data Object (SDO) specifications. Based on Software Pipelines, a methodology designed to leverage concurrent computing to deliver high performance business applications, Rogue Wave Hydra Suite enables development teams to increase application performance and scalability and reduce costs by taking full advantage of multi-core hardware while preserving existing technology investments. Rogue Wave Hydra Suite includes HydraSCA, a service grid that allows developers to tie existing components together in a powerful, agile business process and enable them to run concurrently; HydraExpress, a framework for developing and hosting high performance C++ Web services; and HydraSDO, a data access service for creating standardized SOA data services.

  3. more information[ Go to top ]

    Their web site is not giving more information for technical user, such as architecture details and free downloaf for trail version. Anybody know where I can get these details?
  4. For those interested in use of SCA in adaptive distributed systems it is worth checking out the other independent SCA implementation - Infiniflow DSF from Paremus, the core of which is based on the open source Newton project (http://www.codecauldron.org) Infiniflow's implementation is based on a distributed OSGi runtime which enables it to dynamically deploy and maintain complex SCA systems in the face of changes to and failures of the underlying compute resource. For more details see our website http://www.paremus.com and recent press releases. Regards Richard (Paremus)
