A couple of product updates related to applications management were announced over the last couple of weeks:
- My ex-colleagues at HP working on SOA management have released a new version of SOA Manager (the product that originated with the TalkingBlocks acquisition, when coolness first entered the gloomy 42-Lower floor of HP Cupertino) plus some SOA-buzzword-compliant improvements to Mercury-inherited products (testing tools and BAC). Or so at least says this article (I couldn’t easily find any specifics on the HP site).
- The JBoss guys announced last week version 2.0 of JBoss ON (Operations Network) their application management console. I assume it is a follow-on to the previously announced work with Hyperic even though the press release does not mention anything about it.
