Features of TERASOLUNA Batch Framework for Java
TERASOLUNA Batch Framework for Java is a framework for batch applications, embodying the accumulated expertise of NTT DATA on Java batch processing. TERASOLUNA Batch Framework for Java can merge online applications and batch applications not just at the language (Java) level but also at the framework level, enhancing productivity and ease of maintenance. Moreover, the framework provides processing models for a wide range of variations, such as transaction models, I/O types, and error handling routines, facilitating high-quality system development.
Features of TERASOLUNA Server Framework for Java (Rich Client Edition)
This is a server framework based on and extending the Spring Framework, an open source Java framework used in numerous projects worldwide. Like the TERASOLUNA Server Framework for Java (Web Edition), already released earlier as OSS, it defines such key business application functions as database access control, log output, and exception handling, which can be arranged freely, while also providing functions such as XML message passing that are geared to rich clients.
NTT DATA will continue to promote comprehensive solutions making use of OSS, and to step up OSS-related business plans in areas such as system development and support. Through the development and release of open source software, moreover, the NTT DATA Group is taking an active part in the OSS community both in Japan and abroad, exchanging feedback, and contributing to the healthy growth of the OSS community.
