JackBe Offers Free Developer Edition of Presto Mashup Platform
JackBe, an enterprise mashup software provider, announced last week the availability of free Developer Edition of Presto Enterprise Mashup Platform. This is a community version of Presto Enterprise Mashup software which can be used to create, publish, consume and collaborate with mashup components (called Mashables, Mashups, and Shareables).
The mashup product suite also includes the following components:
- Presto Enterprise Mashup Server: A mashup server that can consume any kind of data and services with a point-click-consume approach for WSDL, REST, RSS, Atom, Database, Excel, and Web clipping.
- Presto Mashup Composers: Mashup Composers come in two flavors:
- Presto Connectors: Connectors to integrate with any Portal Servers (supports WSRP / JSR-168), Microsoft Excel (publish/subscribe to mashups), and HP SOA product Systinet.
Enterprise Mashup Markup Language:
Presto is basically a set of WAR files that run on Tomcat container with a high availability (HA) database (MySQL) with failover. It also has integration with Spring framework. The product also also has the security integration and Single Sign-On (SSO) with the repositories like ActiveDirectory (AD), LDAP and Computer Associate's Netegrity tool.
Presto uses AJAX in the front-end and SOA architecture in the back-end. John Crupi and Chris Warner wrote about the synergy between enterprise mashups and SOA and discussed how a mashup can be a first-class service consumer and how mashups can deliver SOA services to the end users.
As part of the Presto Developer Edition software release, JackBe is also announcing free training and support through their Mashup Developer Community (MDC). The developer community offers training videos, code samples and demonstrations for both beginners and expert mashup developers on topics like "Mashups and SOA", "Mashups and Portals", "Mashups and Oracle" and "Mashups and Ajax/RIA".
