JackBe Announces Free Enterprise Mashup Developer Software


JackBe announced that it is making is enterprise mashup software free to developers.

ebizQ received the following:

JackBe, a provider of enterprise mashup software, today announced the general availability of the Presto Enterprise Mashup Platform Developer Edition, along with free training and support through its Mashup Developer Community (MDC). The developer-focused software, training and support underscores the enormous demand from enterprise developers as they continue to embrace and deploy mashups in their organizations.

“With the Presto Developer Edition and the Mashup Developer Community, JackBe is helping developers that want to embrace mashups in their organizations. We are responding to the needs of Enterprise Mashup Developers everywhere, whether they work for a small company or a world-wide Fortune 100 enterprise,” said Deepak Alur, VP of Engineering, JackBe. “Enterprise mashups let the developer expand their skillset with a new, cool technology while innovating to benefit their organization. This is a no risk way to experience mashups and join a new growing community.”

The Presto Developer Edition is a complete edition of the Presto Enterprise Mashup software that can be used by developers at no cost. Enterprise Mashup developers can create enterprise-grade mashups using the Presto Enterprise Mashup Server, Presto Mashup Composers, Presto Connectors for Portals, Microsoft Excel, and HP Systinet, all driven by JackBe’s unique Enterprise Mashup Markup Language (EMML). In addition, Presto Connect APIs provide easy access to all the underlying power of the Presto mashup platform allowing developers to use and extend with their language and development environment of choice such as Java, JavaScript, ActionScript, C#, and VBA.

The Presto Developer Edition also includes third-party software to enhance the options of the enterprise mashup developer. JackBe has bundled the popular Ext JS 2.0 cross-browser JavaScript libraries. The Ext JS libraries are pre-integrated with the Presto Enterprise Mashup Server, providing a powerful option for building high performance, customized mashup widgets. The Presto Developer Edition also includes 50 mashup-ready APIs from ProgrammableWeb. JackBe selected the top APIs from this world-wide registry that can have an impact on the time-to-creation for meaningful enterprise mashups.

The Mashup Developer Community (MDC) offers an enterprise-focused community that provides hours of training videos, code samples and demonstrations for both beginners and expert mashers. The MDC also provides a support environment for enterprise mashup developers through interactive forums monitored and managed by a large mashup community, including JackBe’s mashup engineers. Finally, the MDC supports the integration of mashups into the enterprise through specialty areas such as ‘Mashups and SOA’, ‘Mashups and Portals’, and ‘Mashups and Oracle’.

“As the mashup paradigm gains momentum and powers an increasing number of enterprise-class solutions, it’s important to have a place where enterprise mashup developers can discuss and evolve best-practices around their construction, security, and governance,” said Mike Ogrinz, author of Mashup Patterns. “JackBe’s Mashup Developer Community will help put enterprise-grade mashup tools into the hands of as many mashup practitioners as possible, drive meaningful mashup conversations, and push the creative envelope for mashup delivery.”
