JBoss Group LLC says it is expecting a “pretty good year”, with plans to consolidate projects announced in 2003 and drum-up new business.
Among plans for the next 12 months will be a drive to sign-up additional ISVs to its open source application server and establish a more formal presence in Asia.
Also in the pipeline is support for IBM Corp’s Eclipse tools framework and plans to attract external cash funding to accelerate JBoss’ growth and assist product development.
JBoss’ is planning to build on a year that saw JBoss attract premier league ISV backing and settle a long-running feud with Java godfather Sun Microsystems Inc over the JBoss application server’s lack of Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) certification.
In 2004 the company wants to sign-up systems vendors and more ISVs to its application server, having so far added webMethods and Mac-maker Apple Computer to the list. Such partnerships mean JBoss can gain a wider presence by exploiting these companies’ channel networks.
