Pantero's Software Prepped for Eclipse Development Environment and JBoss Server


Pantero Corporation, a provider of data integration software, today announced Pantero Release 1.3, making Pantero's software for semantic integration available for the Eclipse development environment and the JBoss application server. Pantero Release 1.3 reportedly adds support for these open-source platforms to Pantero's continuing integration with BEA and IBM software.

Pantero said this software enables business analysts and developers to create rules and services that deliver valid data in integration projects. Using a rich set of graphical tools, developers can import data schemas or models, map data from one representation to another, define rules to ensure validity and consistency, and define error handling behavior — typically without writing any code, and all of it captured as metadata, the comapny said. Implemented as Web services or Java controls, Pantero runtime software allows real-time applications to validate, transform, and exchange meaningful and valid business data, Pantero said.

Pantero's design software operates as a plug-in to the Eclipse Platform and as an extension to BEA WebLogic Workshop, the company added. Pantero projects can also be imported to IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer and Pantero applications run on BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, and JBoss application servers.

James Culbert, CTO of Metratech, said, "Pantero offers up a next generation software approach to integrating service provider OSS/BSS systems for providers racing to deliver innovative, high-margin value-added services. By focusing on the business integrity of message exchange, Pantero is solving one of the thorniest problems in OSS/BSS integration -- providing the agility to support continually evolving services and business models while preserving carrier-class operational integrity."

"We are excited about extending Pantero software to the many users of the Eclipse environment and the JBoss server, in addition to users of the BEA and IBM platforms," said Pano Anthos, CEO of Pantero. "Enterprises face serious challenges delivering valid data between their application systems, providing customers with a quality, self-service, zero-touch experience and doing it all in constantly shrinking development cycles on a wide variety of platforms."

Pantero Release 1.3 expands on its goal to enable large corporations to automate their delivery of valid business data to streamline the cost and time it takes to integrate real-time business applications.

The company highlighted the following additional benefits:

  • Import and export of Web Services Definition Language (WSDL) files. The importer constructs a Pantero data service, including both schema and operations, from the WSDL file.

  • Enhancements to the Expression Builder, a graphical component for constructing expressions used in rules and data transformations, including support for subexpressions. The Expression Builder enables an analyst or developer to implement most rules and transformations without writing any code.

  • A more powerful Pantero Tester, including the ability to test operations, execute queries, and view the state of the application at each step of the operation. Pantero Tester is a design-time component that establishes a local runtime environment for testing and debugging without requiring deployment to a server, greatly increasing the ease and speed of testing.

Pantero Release 1.3 is available immediately. A free, time-limited evaluation copy is available for download from www.pantero.com.
