AdventNet Announces Immediate Availability Of Middleware Manager 4.0 WebLogiC Edition For JMX-Based Management Of Web Applications

Pleasanton, California, July 23, 2002

AdventNet, Inc., the leading provider of standards-based J2EE management solutions announced the immediate availability of AdventNet Middleware Manager 4.0 WebLogiC Edition, optimized for advanced JMX (Java Management Extensions) based management of entire web application ecosystems.

"Managing J2EE environments has become critical as enterprises increasingly embrace J2EE-based ecosystems." said Corey Ferengul, Vice President, META Group. "A standards-based solution, rather than a proprietary solution, is the ideal choice in today's environment, particularly as enterprises evolve towards management of web services. JMX plays a crucial role in the management of Java/J2EE based web applications and is the management standard of choice in the Java world."

AdventNet Middleware Manager leverages AdventNet's expertise in solutions based on open standards such as JMX and SNMP. AdventNet has more than 160 ISV and enterprise customers for its JMX-based toolkit. AdventNet also has the distinction of having the first Sun-certified independent JMX implementation. The J2EE agent toolkit integrated with Middleware Manager leverages JMX and SNMP standards and facilitates the generation of a custom agent to expose rich advanced management information about the applications deployed on the WebLogic Server.

"BEA is a valued AdventNet OEM partner and BEA WebLogic Server ships with AdventNet SNMP technology. Our in-depth understanding has helped optimize Middleware Manager WebLogic Edition to meet the specific needs of WebLogic users. Open standards provide investment protection and ease of integration with enterprise consoles. Using JMX, enterprises avoid closed proprietary architectures that are liable to rapidly become obsolete and require expensive integration", said Sekar Vembu, President of the Enterprise Business Unit at AdventNet.

AdventNet Middleware Manager 4.0 has a number of exciting new features that make it 'the preferred solution' for managing WebLogic deployments. The End-to-End Web Transactional Views provide complete visibility into individual transactions and detailed application performance statistics in clustered environments. The intelligent Root Cause Analyzer provides accurate and detailed alarm analysis. The extensible GUI supports creation of custom dashboards, to present a snapshot view of the entire deployment environment - with further drill down as needed. This release adds new support for component monitoring, including support for monitoring BEA Tuxedo JOLT connections.

The end-to-end functionality in the Middleware Manager addresses management of the entire application ecosystem - infrastructure (application server, web server, database, log file etc.) as well as the applications built on the infrastructure. Middleware Manager, AdventNet ManageEngine for JMX enablement, and AdventNet Console Builder as the graphical dashboard builder, together offer a comprehensive and scalable web application management solution.

With AdventNet's policy of 'try before you buy', the fully functional AdventNet Middleware Manager is now available for download at www.zohocorp.com.
