As the cloud empowers enterprises to innovate in new ways, we know its important to disrupt vendors of both large legacy middleware and PaaS by dramatically simplifying the entire application life cycle. We are excited about our new partnership with Codenvy, the “Code Better Instantly” company, to collaborate on extending cloud development deeper into enterprises. We will design new systems to provide full lifecycle development capabilities for complex middleware using cloud integrated development environments (IDEs).
Codenvy will integrate directly with the new WSO2 Cloud platform as a service (PaaS) to enable development and deployment of advanced middleware applications, integrations and APIs in the cloud. They will produce and publish a variety of enterprise cloud plug-ins for visual editors for WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus, data mapping, and business process management.
In addition we will create a special packaging for WSO2 App Factory, a complete cloud-enabled life cycle solution that blends pre-production workflows with production runtime environments. When all of this is combined, enterprise developers will be able to instantly provision development projects, develop code and configuration, collaborate with other developers and QA teams, and deploy middleware applications—all directly in the cloud.
The collaboration has already begun, with previews planned for WSO2Con (October 28-31, 2013 in San Francisco) and first releases later this calendar year. Developers can get an evaluation account on WSO2 StratosLive today, at stratoslive.wso2.com and can get a community subscription of Codenvy Developer immediately at www.codenvy.com.
