Fujitsu Launches Interstage Application Server V11August 20, 2012 No Comments
Tokyo, August 20, 2012 — Fujitsu today announced the immediate availability of Interstage Application Server V11, an updated version of its application server that provides support for the latest in smart device development frameworks. Fujitsu plans to steadily roll out the new application server worldwide, while also offering it through the company’s FGCP/S5 public cloud service and FGCP/A5 Powered by Windows Azure.
Interstage Application Server V11 incorporates the latest jQuery Mobile 1.1.1(1) development framework for smart devices, thereby making it easy to develop user-friendly applications for smartphones and tablet devices. In addition, with support for the latest version of Java, Java SE 7(2), the new application server enables a 30% improvement in Java application development productivity.
Moreover, Interstage Application Server V11 is the only application server in the world that can simultaneously run business applications developed using multiple generations of Java, COBOL, and C. As a result, existing business processes written in Java SE 6 and other older specifications can run alongside and link to new processes developed using Java SE 7. This, in turn, makes it possible to easily add new functionality while flexibly and gradually consolidating business processes.
The new application server includes an enhanced Smart Set-up feature, based on the Fujitsu Smart Software Technology(3), that can perform a series of deployment steps with a single command in as little as 15 minutes, making it easy to rapidly deliver business applications.
- Support for the latest standards enables improved development productivity
Interstage Application Server V11 features support for jQuery Mobile 1.1.1, the latest version of the application development framework for smart devices that enables speedier page transitions on smartphones and tablet devices, as well as improved tap responsiveness on longer pages. This thereby allows developers to effortlessly develop applications with easy-to-use user interfaces. In addition to supporting Java EE 6, as was the case in V10, applications can be developed using the latest Java SE 7 specification. With Java SE 7, exception handling and resource collection functions can be written with greater brevity than ever before. For example, through the addition of a file handling API, file management operations that were impossible using previous Java versions can now see development productivity improve by 30% over Java SE 6.
- Allows applications using multiple Java generations to run parallel and link on the same server
Although the new application server supports the latest Java SE 7 specification, it also ensures the performance of existing applications that use Java SE 6 and other older specifications. Legacy processes and new Java SE 7 processes can run alongside and interact with each other on the same application server. As a result, new processes that link with existing processes can easily be added without the need to modify the existing processes, making it possible to flexibly and gradually consolidate business applications. Interstage Application Server V11 is the only application server in the world that can simultaneously run business applications developed using multiple generations of Java, COBOL, and C.
- Simplifies deployments
The new application server features a Smart Set-up feature that has been enhanced with the aim of accelerating business service deployments to give customers a competitive edge. Users can perform the deployment process, which previously required 19 different steps, with a single command—from setting up an execution environment to business application deployment, database connection and process booting. The system helps users easily navigate through the deployment process, including steps where configuration is required.
Most application servers require administrators to devote a number of hours to deployment, including time needed for referring to the user manual. With Interstage Application Server V11, deployments are possible in as little as fifteen minutes—without the need for a manual—and application additions or deletions are also effortless when making changes to a process.
