    Press release
    SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct 3, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Fujitsu Software Corp. today announced that its INTERSTAGE Application Server 4.0 has successfully completed Sun Microsystems' Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Compatibility Test Suite (CTS) for Windows, Linux and Solaris operating systems. By conforming to the J2EE specifications and testing compatibility for its INTERSTAGE Application Server, Fujitsu Software has demonstrated its commitment to providing customers worldwide with a new choice for conducting dynamic ebusiness applications.

    The INTERSTAGE Application Server 4.0 conforms to J2EE 1.2 specifications -- which include Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), Java Server Pages (JSP), Servlets, Java Messaging Service (JMS), and Java Transaction API (JTA) technology. The enhanced compatibility helps to ensure that businesses can quickly deploy applications across their operations, even if heterogeneous software platforms are involved.

    "With the INTERSTAGE Application Server 4.0, Fujitsu has responded to the evolution of Java technology," said Shizuo Inagaki, president, Fujitsu Software Corp. "The J2EE platform has reached a level of maturity within the enterprise, and customers across industries now rely on it to integrate and run their businesses. By complying with J2EE standards, the INTERSTAGE Application Server 4.0 provides customers the interoperability, reliability and scalability needed in today's demanding business environment."

    "J2EE technology provides customers with solutions that deliver faster time to market, freedom of choice against proprietary products, and simplified integration with existing applications," said Ralph Galantine, product line manager for J2EE, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "By passing the J2EE Compatibility Test Suite for its INTERSTAGE Application Server, Fujitsu has entered an elite category of companies committed to ensuring compatibility across a heterogeneous network."

    The INTERSTAGE Application Server 4.0 The INTERSTAGE Application Server 4.0 is the foundation of the INTERSTAGE ebusiness software platform and provides an infrastructure that delivers the highest level of performance, robustness and scalability to enable enterprises to build and run mission-critical ebusiness applications. In addition, INTERSTAGE Application Server 4.0 offers several features that provide exceptional reliability and availability including session recovery, a hot-standby capability, and improved load balancing.

    Within the next three years, Fujitsu expects to have installed the INTERSTAGE Application Server on more than 65,000 servers worldwide. Its customers include half of the top-tier financial institutions in Japan and it enjoys wide-scale acceptance in enterprises from automobile manufacturing to consumer appliances. While the INTERSTAGE Application Server is new to the United States, it has been field-proven in some of the most demanding environments.

    Fujitsu's Commitment to Open Standards A leader in the open standards movement, Fujitsu is committed to protecting its customers from being locked into proprietary extensions of its products. Fujitsu is a member of the Java Community Process (JCP), an industry-wide, community-based process for developing Java technology specifications, reference implementations and associated technology compatibility kits. As a member of JCP's executive committee, Fujitsu is involved with the development of both the J2EE and Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) specifications. These two specifications provide the investment protection of a standards-based solution. Fujitsu also is a major contributor to the OMG, a member of all major standards bodies in Japan, and an active participant in standards initiatives on all continents.

    Availability and Pricing The J2EE-compatible INTERSTAGE Application Server is currently in Beta testing. General availability is expected in November 2001.

    The INTERSTAGE Application Server is priced per server and CPU. This pricing model allows customers to analyze costs in a simple and straightforward manner, without the need to forecast how many named or concurrent users will need licenses.

  2. Has anyone here used Interstage?

  3. I have contacted their support and found out the following:

    As mentioned above, the US release is still in b├Ęta testing.
    Documentation is not fully translated from Japanese into English yet.

    Note that INTERSTAGE is the market leader in Japan.

    I hope this helps you,
  4. I find that hard to believe since there is a Japanese version of WebLogic. But perhaps Fujitsu is fulfilling the "entry level" appserver role in Japan that IBM is playing in the US.
  5. i am using the interstage.this is too dispatch.

    Meanwhile the rest of the world moves on with J2EE 1.3
