REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingres Corporation, the
leading business open source database company, today announced it has
initiated a partnership with BEA Systems, Inc. with the common goal of
dramatically lowering costs and increasing flexibility by providing a
proven, open source alternative for enterprise service-oriented
architecture (SOA) development. As a result of the partnership, BEA
Workshop Studio is designed to include support for Ingres 2006, the latest
release of the enterprise open source relational database.
With its award-winning, professional-level developer tools for the open
source Eclipse development environment, BEA Workshop Studio 3.1 is designed
to help developers easily tap into Ingres for enterprise projects by simply
downloading the free trial version of Ingres 2006.
BEA Workshop Studio is designed to automatically recognize Ingres, so
that developers can begin using the full power of the database tools, and
the comprehensive EJB3 O/R Mapping Studio, while accessing new or existing
Ingres data sources. Enterprise customers using BEA Workshop Studio can
further simplify the development process by incorporating mainframe and
commercial data stores using Ingres/Net, Enterprise Access and EDBC.
"BEA's unique blended development model is designed to help enable
customers to choose the best mix of open source and commercial software for
their needs, while minimizing integration and testing headaches," said Bill
Roth, vice president of the BEA Workshop Business Unit. "With Ingres, we
can allow customers to incorporate existing enterprise data into SOA."
With this announcement, BEA and Ingres are agreeing to provide Ingres
partners and more than 10,000 existing customers worldwide with an on-ramp
to SOA-style solutions.
"BEA and Ingres share the goal of increasing developer productivity,
lowering costs and providing customers and partners with choice," said Dev
