BEA Systems today debuted a new event server that enables enterprises to use BEA's Java application servers to build an event-driven SOA (service-oriented architecture).

BEA's announcement emphasized its strategy of bringing emerging SOA and EDA (event-driven architecture) concepts into the familiar world of Java servers, middleware and tooling.

BEA's new WebLogic Event Server is designed to handle event-driven applications such as aggregating information from distributed sources in real time and discerning patterns or trends. The service provides XTP (extreme transaction processing) support, including high throughput, high predictability and real-time response. It supports POJO (Plain Old Java Object) programming and the Spring Framework, as well as an EPL (Event Processing Language) that extends SQL processing in key ways.Underlying the WebLogic Event Server is BEA's microService Architecture, announced last fall. That architecture enables BEA to offer the event server as a lightweight application server, rather than as a standalone CEP (complex event processing) engine, making it easier to drop it into existing SOA environments, BEA says.

The WebLogic Event Server combines with BEA WebLogic Real Time and BEA WebLogic Virtual Edition to create a full-scale EDA/SOA platform, BEA says.
