AltoWeb and JBoss Bring Web Services and J2EE to the Masses

AltoWeb and JBoss Bring Web Services and J2EE to the Masses

(Palo Alto, CA and Atlanta, GA) – AltoWeb, Inc., the leader in J2EE application platforms and Web services, announced support for JBoss, the leading Open Source J2EE-based application server. The AltoWeb Application Platform, integrated with the JBoss application server, provides a reusable, component-based architecture and rapid application development solution that streamlines the development, deployment, monitoring, and management of J2EE applications and Web services. A free 30-day evaluation copy of the combined AltoWeb JBoss solution is available at and This one-click install provides a preconfigured version of the AltoWeb Application Platform and JBoss, as well as sample applications and guided tours.

"The AltoWeb release for JBoss immediately offers the more than 50,000 monthly downloaders of JBoss software a powerful new option for creating, deploying, and managing their Web services and applications," said Ali Kutay, president and CEO of AltoWeb, Inc. "While AltoWeb remains a purchasable line of products, the addition of a leading, no-cost, enterprise-class application server dramatically reduces the total cost of ownership of Web-based applications for our customers. This is an attractive option for Global 2000 organizations trying to reduce costs, particularly in their development efforts, yet desiring to work with best-of-breed technology and solutions. AltoWeb further reduces the lifetime cost of ownership of business applications by automating the development and deployment of the major components of all applications that run on an application server - in this case, an industry-leading, J2EE-based application server that is supported in an outstanding effort by the Open Source community and the JBoss Group," said Kutay.

"JBoss is very happy to team with AltoWeb to bring a unified application platform to our enterprise end users," said Marc Fleury, founder of JBoss and president of JBoss Group, LLC. "AltoWeb's design-time and run-time frameworks, tools, and packaged components should streamline application development and lower the knowledge barrier necessary for developers to enter the Web services and J2EE marketplace. The AltoWeb initiative to equip and enable developers to trade their components across and within industries, in a standards-based, open environment, reflects the community-building spirit that has contributed to JBoss' success. By choosing JBoss as an integrated, pre-configured application server for their platform solution, AltoWeb demonstrates its commitment to speed, power, flexibility and greater ease of use at a lower cost."
