San Jose, California, USA. February 10, 2003.
Continuing to offer customers the most robust infrastructure for the broadest range of development, BEA Systems, Inc., the world's leading application infrastructure software company, today announced BEA Tuxedo 8.1, the Web services-enabled release of the proven transaction processing platform for building mission-critical, large-scale and high-volume distributed enterprise applications. Leveraging improved integration with the BEA WebLogic Enterprise Platform, the new version of BEA Tuxedo can dramatically simplify Web services development and extends Tuxedo's service-oriented architecture to the Web.
BEA Tuxedo, with its multi-language heritage, which includes C, C++, and COBOL, continues to be a key component of BEA's product portfolio and overall application infrastructure strategy. By leveraging Tuxedo's tighter integration with BEA WebLogic Server and BEA WebLogic Workshop, customers can extend their business-critical applications as standard Web services. In addition, tighter integration can also allow for improved BEA Tuxedo operations, administration and maintenance (OA&M), including new support for single sign on and centralized security administration.
"This release marks not only the twentieth anniversary of Tuxedo's introduction, but also BEA's continued commitment to enhance the product through standards adoption and to support our customers for years to come," said Olivier Helleboid, president, Product Organization, BEA Systems, Inc. "BEA continues to focus on providing customers ways to integrate business processes while preserving their investments, and this latest release of BEA Tuxedo delivers a multi-language platform that is tightly integrated with the rest of their environment."

Tuxedo can enable enterprises to focus on serving their customers through business applications, while BEA handles the underlying complexity of highly transactional, distributed applications that connect the world's businesses.
"BEA Tuxedo provides a rock solid infrastructure that links our user applications with back-end systems, such as billing, user account management, and service provisioning," said Integration Department Head, Timo Gronroos, IT Management, Radiolinja. "BEA Tuxedo has enabled us to build a flexible IT infrastructure to support our rapid growth and continuous introduction of new services to our customers, handling millions of transactions annually -- reliably and efficiently. In conjunction with BEA WebLogic Server and BEA WebLogic Integration, which we use in developing and managing our application infrastructure, BEA Tuxedo continues to help us to better leverage our existing IT investments."
