SilverStream eXtend JEDDI Registry

SilverStream Software Releases the SilverStream eXtend JEDDI Registry as a Resource for Developers

Available for Free Download to Foster the Adoption of UDDI Registries to Publish, Discover and Manage Web Services

Billerica, MA, USA. December 10, 2001.

SilverStream Software, Inc. today announced that SilverStream eXtend JEDDI, a comprehensive UDDI (Universal Discovery, Description and Integration) implementation, is available for free download at SilverStream has released a free developer edition of SilverStream eXtend JEDDI (Java Enterprise Discovery, Description and Integration) to encourage developers to discover the benefits of UDDI for publishing, managing and sharing Web Services internally across development projects. SilverStream Software is a member of the UDDI community and supports the continued development of the UDDI standard.

"The UDDI specification is an open initiative that offers real business benefits regardless of whether you use a public or private registry implementation, but not all developers and organizations are ready to experiment publicly with UDDI registries," said Steve Benfield, chief technology officer at SilverStream Software. "By making a developer edition of SilverStream eXtend JEDDI available for free download, developers now have a low-risk option for testing UDDI registries on their own terms."

SilverStream eXtend JEDDI, currently available in beta, is an open implementation of the UDDI v1.0 specification and can be used for public Web Services development and testing as well as private UDDI deployments. It includes administration tools, core data, and optional test data to help developers get started quickly with UDDI.

SilverStream eXtend JEDDI comes with sample business data for testing (UDDI clients), and features a Web-based administration tool that offers:

  • User group administration to determine limits for how many businesses, services, bindings and tModels (service type definition) can be published per user

  • The ability to trace incoming and outgoing messages

  • An error log and the ability to track performance

Like all of SilverStream's products, SilverStream eXtend JEDDI is fully standards-based so that it can be flexibly leveraged on a variety of platforms. Its server agent executes in J2EE application servers including the SilverStream eXtend Application Server (3.7.4 and higher) and Apache Tomcat (3.7 and 4.0), and can be precompiled and repackaged using the SilverStream eXtend Workbench to support BEA WebLogic, IBM WebShpere, Oracle 9iAS and others. In addition, SilverStream eXtend JEDDI supports a variety of databases including Oracle 8i, IBM DB2 v.7, Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Informix Cloudscape 3.6 and Sybase Adaptive Server v.6.

SilverStream eXtend JEDDI is a core component of the SilverStream eXtend integrated services environment, the first comprehensive, J2EE-compatible product suite to simplify and accelerate the development and deployment of services-oriented applications on market-leading J2EE application servers. In addition to a UDDI v1.0 implementation, SilverStream eXtend features comprehensive support for all other Web Services standards including a SOAP v1.1 implementation provided by SilverStream's jBroker.
