Components of BEA will be morphed into the Oracle Fusion Middleware Suite. The strategic direction for each product line and the overlapping functionality has been made clear by Oracle (subject of a separate post).
The relevant points of interest are
1. Oracle ESB will become Oracle Service Bus. implying in techie terms that Oracle ESB is dead... long live BEA Aqualogic.
2. Oracle Java Machine is also dead... long live BEA JRockit.
3. OC4J is over... BEA J2EE Container comes out the winner.
4. Oracle Services Repository will be replaced by Aqualogic Enterprise Repository.
The major component that carries over from Oracle Fusion Middleware is Oracle BPEL.
