Application Servers are the heart of modern industrial-grade Internet, intranet and extranet architectures. Standards-compliant Application Servers support the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) standard and serve as containers that support the construction of software architectures in which the presentation layer (implemented as Java Server Pages --JSP) is separated from the business logic (implemented with Enterprise JavaBeans – EJB). This layered approach to the design of complex transaction systems is essential in creating systems that are scalable, reliable and relatively easy to maintain. This approach also makes it possible to develop reusable software components, and supports the creation of systems that are capable of sharing business logic while delivering different presentations to different devices or points of access. Modern Application Servers also support connectivity services to Legacy systems, databases and, through XML interchange, to the broader diversity of network based transaction peers. An application written to run on an Application Server can be easily ported between hosting environments. In this way, as the application transaction volume grows, the baseline code can be migrated to higher performance systems. OMIX was a very early adopter of Application Servers, and has been integrating BEA’s industry-leading WebLogic™ Application Server longer than any other integrator. OMIX has selected the WebLogic™ server as our preferred app server environment because of BEA's ongoing commitment to being first to market in supporting emerging standards, and because the clustering abilities of this server make it possible to create solutions that scale gracefully.
