Red Hat's JBoss dons BlackTie to target BEA Tuxedo - Yahoo! News

Strange days indeed

JBoss, the open source middleware company purchased by Red Hat in April 2006, already had built its reputation by commoditizing the Java-based application server market once dominated by BEA's WebLogic, which soon will become an Oracle product once the software vendor completes its purchase of BEA.

Now JBoss aims to go after the Tuxedo install base, which Sacha Labourey, vice president of engineering middleware at Red Hat JBoss, said represents "tens of millions" of dollars in revenue opportunity. "BlackTie is about helping companies migrate away from one of the key legacy lock-ins out there, Tuxedo," he said.
