Java Platform, Enterprise Edition—formerly known as Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition or J2EE—is a platform used for the development of server-side Java applications. It extends the Java SE by providing web services, component model, management, and communications APIs that have made it an extremely popular solution for implementing enterprise class service-oriented architecture.
jBASE provides a bi-directional interface to JEE by means of the JEE compliant jRemote Inbound and jRemote Outbound resource adapters.
A Resource Adapter is a system-level software driver, which is used by a Java application to connect to an EIS. Other examples of Resource Managers are data sources such as JDBC drivers.
The JEE Connector Architecture (JCA) specification, to which these resource adapters conform, specifies the mechanisms and contracts required for this transactional interaction. JCA provides a Java technology solution to the problem of connectivity between the many application containers and today’s enterprise information systems (EIS).
