Xcalia Studio 4.0 Provides Visual Tool

Maps Database and Service-Oriented Resources to Java Object Models into a SOA

Xcalia Studio 4.0 is billed by the company as "a unique, intuitive visual mapping tool is the first in the industry to enable developers who build applications within a SOA to easily and simultaneously access and map Java objects to both databases and service-oriented resources."

Xcalia Studio 4.0 is tightly integrated with the Eclipse application development platform, and it can be run as an Eclipse perspective. Xcalia Studio 4.0 automates the generation of the XML metadata and mapping documents for a comprehensive view of the mapping between the Java classes and database or service-oriented resources. It also organizes the different tasks to be performed when accessing information to run an application.

“By nature, service mapping is much more complex than data mapping,” said Xcalia CTO, Eric Samson (pictured). “Service mapping technologies cannot rely on convenient APIs and are constrained and defined by business or technical logic. Although services provide no direct data handling, they are procedural and sequential by nature, and their operational model is limited compared to database access.

"Our vision at Xcalia has been to make service mapping as easy as accessing any other data source within the IT infrastructure. The upgrade to our Xcalia Studio product to help developers visually map Java object models to services is a huge step in making that vision a reality.”

The product is designed to accelerate the speed and ease of object-to-database and object-to-service mapping with the addition of new functionality. It features wizards that enable auto-mapping based on configurable rules and support for a variety of mapping approaches such as bottom-up (generation of Java from relational schemas), top-down (relational schemas from Java) and meet-in-the-middle (mapping between existing Java and schemas).

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. DatacenterDynamics is a brand of DCD Group, a global B2B media and publishing company that develops products to help senior professionals in the world's most ICT dependent organizations make risk-based infrastructure and capacity decisions.
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
