iTAC.MES.Suite has been successfully migrated to Java EE 5, which means that it
now satisfies all requirements for SaaS or cloud computingbased operation. iTAC
introduced this new technology so that its customers can achieve their
ambitious objectives despite today's increasingly short production cycles,
growing system complexity, pressure to streamline production
operations and growing quality requirements.
An overview of
the new technology and its advantages
The Java EE 5 industry standard is a reliable,
efficient and scalable platform for enterprise applications. Java EE 5 enables
the simple integration of the iTAC.MES.Suite in ERP, PLM and legacy
systems with standardized enterprise connectors. It is then easy to use
information services, perform transaction handling, resource management,
database abstraction and other functions. Another feature is real-time process monitoring
via a multi-channel architecture. Java EE 5 minimizes configuration requirements, which considerably
simplifies the maintenance and administration of the iTAC.MES.Suite.
The Java EE 5 industrial standard is supported
by leading Java Application Server platforms such as Oracle Fusion, IBM
WebSphere, SAP NetWeaver, Red Hat JBoss and Sun Java System Application Server.
Machine integration is facilitated
by the company's own iTAC.ARTES* platform and the iTAC.MES.Suite's unicode-capable
IMS-API service. iTAC.ARTES facilitates the monitoring of machine interfaces and
client components via the application server's administration consoles and the
efficient integration of heterogeneous machine parks.
The iTAC.MES.Suite 7 on Java EE 5 is scalable, high-availability
and downwardly compatible
technology consists of three components: iTAC High Availability Service (iTAC.HAS)
as cluster layer, iTAC Monitoring iTAC.MON (monitoring sub-system) and iTAC.HAP
(iTAC High Availability Protocol), a fast binary http protocol that is
available in various operating systems.)
