Last week Oracle Corp. told attendees at Oracle OpenWorld that the integartion of BEA Systems resources into Oracle's well-integrated middleware product family cotniues at a rapid pace. Oracle cited progress with key Oracle Fusion Middlewar components, including Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle WebLogic Application Grid, Oracle Business Process Management, and Oracle WebCenter Suite.

"The integration of BEA products into the Oracle Fusion Middleware product family has helped us deliver further improvements on the industry's most complete, open and integrated middleware suite," said Thomas Kurian, senior vice president, Oracle Fusion Middleware, in a statement. "Our customers believe our strategy is clear, and are excited to see the delivery of product integrations so quickly, with no forced migrations."

The efforts are geared toward providing customers a complete, open, and integrated middleware foundation with unique capabilities for enabling an application grid architecture, he added.

Customer reaction, especially among those using both BEA and Oracle products, has been positive:

"As a long-time business partner of both BEA and Oracle, we are pleased to see progress across the integration of these two offerings," said Evan Jafa CTO at The First American Corp. in a statement.

"First American's WSP (Web Services Platform) SOA initiative is built on key BEA technologies such as WebLogic Server, so we are excited to see our choice of middleware as a strategic component of Oracle Fusion Middleware. As a leader in Grid technology, Oracle understands that high availability and scalability are critical for us. Any enterprise looking for a best-in-class middleware stack has to consider Oracle Fusion Middleware as a front-runner," Jafa added.

Since the BEA acquisition, Oracle reported its Oracle Fusion Middleware community now exceeds 80,000 customers and 20,000 partners (including SI, ISVs, VARs and value-added distributors).

Other new/partners OFM customers include: Alibris, Ascensus, Chick-fil-A, Inc., Embarq, China Pacific Insurance, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Guangdong Mobile, Intercall, Kelly Services, Mead Westvaco, MSC Software Corporation, NetApp, Televisa, Université Laval, and Wind River are using, or recently selected software from the combined Oracle and BEA middleware product family.
