Lutris Technologies Inc. has announced the availability of a preview version of its Lutris EAS 4.1.1 for Mac OS X, specifically. Lutris EAS is a Java Application Server that features Java Services Architecture, Web Services capabilities, clustering functionality and wireless and voice presentation capabilities.
Lutris hopes that its support of Mac OS X will help spur acceptance of the Unix-based operating system in the enterprise developer market. “In particular, the company believes that Lutris EAS 4.1 will extend the reach of Mac OS X to Web and wireless applications requiring higher maintainability, enterprise fail-over support and client-side device independence,” explained Lutris.
Lutris EAS 4.1 is the second edition of the company’s next-generation Java Services platform, which debuted last fall. The new build supports features like automated migration of existing BEA and IBM J2EE applications, as well as essential services like UDDI and SOAP. A new tool is available for exporting any Java service as a Web Service, as well.
Lutris EAS 4.1 supports natively an extensive list of wireless and voice XML standards. HTML, WML, SMS, J2ME, i-mode CHTML and XHTML, as well as the W3C standard VoiceXML are all supported. Lutris also includes the MVC/2 style presentation framework Barracuda along with its own XMLC compiler, which the company explained is the XML engine behind EAS’s wireless capabilities. Barracuda helps to standardize form construction, localization, client detection and event handling.
