PrismTech announced that the two open-source middleware communities are merging their CORBA Component Model (CCM) initiatives, underpinning the company’s OpenFusion CCM offering. The Distributed Object Computing (DOC) Group and the OW2 Consortium—with support and contribution from PrismTech—are combining their efforts to advance the development and deployment of CCM technology.
The CCM defines features and services that enable application developers to implement, manage, configure, and deploy components that integrate commonly used CORBA services. It enhances software reuse and provides a flexible platform for deploying and configuring CORBA applications within mission-critical environments, such as defense, aerospace, air traffic control, transportation management, utilities and financial trading.
“The combined efforts of the DOC Group, OW2 Consortium, and PrismTech truly creates a CCM ‘dream team,’” said Douglas Schmidt, Ph.D., chief technology officer at PrismTech and founder of the DOC Group. “These open-source middleware communities represent the most widely recognized innovators and thought leaders within the industry. Combined with PrismTech’s expertise and experience providing quality products, support and services, you have all the right ingredients to meet CCM market requirements.”
OpenFusion CCM is PrismTech’s productized version of the combined open-source initiatives. It is based on the thorough industry-grade quality assurance processes PrismTech has built over many years for its other open-source CORBA offerings. This product now positions PrismTech as a complete provider of CCM and CORBA offerings covering products, technical support, training, consulting and outsourcing services.
“We continue to see strong demand for CORBA related technologies where other middleware distribution and integration solutions either do not scale or lack sufficient quality-of-service (QoS) runtime features and end-to-end lifecycle support,” said Andrew Foster, OpenFusion product manager at PrismTech. “OpenFusion CCM represents a significant advance for our customers interested in leveraging and expanding their CORBA investments within large-scale and complex mission-critical applications. OpenFusion CCM delivers best-of-both-worlds: open-source technology and commercial support.”
In addition, OpenFusion CCM provides ease-of-use and performance benefits through the lifecycle of a distributed application. It provides a standard application framework and productivity tools for CORBA components that can be modeled, assembled, deployed into containers. It also reduces complexity—development, assembly, configuration, deployment and redeployment—and increases robustness of complex distributed applications. OpenFusion CCM is language-independent and supports advanced QoS features, such as fault tolerance and predictable end-to-end latency.
