Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced new integration capabilities for SAP®
solutions as part of The JBoss Way, a development approach that provides
developers a more productive and simpler way to develop modern
applications. The collaboration is an effort to enhance interoperability
between Red Hat and SAP solutions, and provides capabilities that make
it easier to consume SAP application data and business processes from
Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform, JBoss Enterprise Data Services
Platform, or JBoss Enterprise Application Platform.
"The long-standing collaboration between Red Hat and SAP is thriving,
and integration between technologies from both companies is a great
example of what The JBoss Way was designed for," said Craig Muzilla,
vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat. "The aim of
this integration is a more intelligent, integrated enterprise -- one that
can maximize the value of data assets and accelerate business decisions.
Ultimately, our goal is to enable developers to innovate faster and
create transformative applications that have real business impact."
The integration is done via SAP NetWeaver® Gateway technology, which
provides a simple way to connect devices, environments and platforms to
SAP software based on open standards. It offers connectivity to SAP
applications using any programming language or model without the need
for knowledge of SAP solutions by leveraging REST services and OData
and/or ATOM protocols.
"SAP and Red Hat both support open standards, such as HTML5, REST and
OData, and frequently join forces in standards-based consortia," said
Adi Kavalar, vice president, Product Management, SAP. "The support of
SAP solutions in the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio - for
consuming SAP NetWeaver Gateway-provisioned, REST-based OData services -
underscores our cooperation in the open community and is a welcome and
encouraging step for customers and developers."
Introduced in June 2012, The JBoss Way encompasses a new set of
frameworks, tools and architectural designs focused on improving
developer productivity in building modern applications for mobile, the
cloud and more. JBoss Enterprise Middleware gives businesses a choice of
scalable and high-performance application development frameworks and
platforms needed to build effective enterprise Java applications and
services. The portfolio features a comprehensive suite of development
tooling to construct customer Java applications, including those that
extract data from SAP NetWeaver.
