JBoss buys tech from Arjuna, HP

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 12:43 pm

JBoss has acquired two electronic-transaction technologies from Arjuna Technologies and Hewlett-Packard, in a move to bolster its open-source middleware.

The open-source software company said Monday it plans to make the proprietary software part of its JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite. Arjuna was formed three years ago out of the now-defunct HP Arjuna Lab.

The acquisitions comprise the Arjuna Transaction Service Suite, a transaction engine, as well as Arjuna’s Web Services Transaction technologies, which support two popular Web services specifications.

JBoss’ technology buy is its latest move to build up its open-source middleware.

Boss anticipates releasing Arjuna Transaction Service Suite and Arjuna Web Services Transaction as part of its open-source enterprise middleware suite during the first quarter. Arjuna’s chief architect, Mark Little, will also join JBoss as director of standards.
