Red Hat working on complex event processing software

The capability will be featured in JBoss Enterprise Business Rules Management System 5.1, due next year

Red Hat will preview next week a CEP (complex event processing) capability being added to the company's open source business rules management software.

Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise BRMS (Business Rules Management System) 5.1 will feature a technology preview of CEP, with the general release of the capability due in the next release of BRMS, likely in 2011. "What CEP lets you do is look for patterns within the business event and take action on that," such as fraud detection or product shipping patterns, said Pierre Fricke, director of product line management for middleware at Red Hat, on Tuesday.

The JBoss CEP would compete with technologies from companies like IBM and Tibco. Red Hat believes it has advantages over rivals in that it integrates BRMS and CEP in the same product, boasts high performance, and offers the benefits of an open source community around the software. "We're looking for early adopters" of the CEP software so it can be polished before the final release, Fricke said.

BRMS 5.1 also adds more options for Java Virtual Machine and server deployments and improved usability. "We've done things like made the UI a lot more friendly and configurable with Google Web Toolkit," Fricke said. Also, the software now can be deployed on the Apache Tomcat servlet container.

Simplified developer tools are featured with version 5.1. Real-time collaboration is enabled between business analysts and developers. Also, rules services can be more quickly published into a SOA.

Annual subscriptions to JBoss Enterprise BRMS 5.1 start at $20,000 for 16 cores.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
