SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition Provides Best Runtime Environment for Creating Spring Applications

SpringSource, a division of VMware, Inc.(NYSE:VMW) and the leader in Java application infrastructure and management, today announced SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition, a 100-percent Apache Tomcat-compatible platform that gives developers deep visibility and relevant information for debugging and improving the performance of their Spring applications. SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition is a free commercial product offering available to developers for download immediately.

Apache Tomcat is the world’s most widely used Java application server. Together with Spring, the leading enterprise Java programming model, developers find the lean and powerful combination of Tomcat and Spring a natural fit that keeps their application code free of needless Java EE complexity. SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition enhances Apache Tomcat to provide Java developers deep visibility into the performance characteristics and execution details of their Spring applications.

The key component of tc Server Developer Edition is the Spring Insight console, a dashboard view of real-time Spring application performance metrics. Without changing their code, developers can use Spring Insight to detect, analyze and diagnose application performance issues right from their desktops. In addition, SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition is integrated with the SpringSource Tool Suite, the best Eclipse-powered development environment for building Spring-powered enterprise applications, so that developers can isolate the exact section of code that is at issue, and fix the problem quickly.

“tc Server Developer Edition provides performance insight into Spring applications, helping developers to manage and quickly remedy any problems that arise,” said Dennis Callaghan, analyst, enterprise software at The 451 Group. “SpringSource is providing tools to build the applications and a light-weight runtime that’s ideal for troubleshooting. It’s a combination that should increase developer efficiency.”

SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition represents how SpringSource’s focus on accelerating the build, run, manage application lifecycle can create new efficiencies for developers and QA teams. tc Server Developer Edition is based on SpringSource tc Server, the enterprise version of Apache Tomcat designed to bridge the gap between developers and operations, as it provides the right level of performance visibility to suit the needs of developers creating applications and IT web operations teams managing those applications.

Providing Significant Developer Benefits

SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition introduces significant new efficiencies for developers, including:

  • A graphical look at application performance—Within Spring Insight, application performance is graphically displayed via response time charts and histograms, providing developers an easily digestible look into where processing time is spent.
  • Easy navigation to identify the root causes of concerns—Expandable call trees enable developers to drill down into application requests and controller actions.
  • Integration with SpringSource Tool Suite to fix problems—By integrating SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition with SpringSource Tool Suite, developers gain a deeper understanding of how the application is functioning and performing by isolating a transaction trace and quickly jumping to the portion of code that is causing a problem.

“SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition provides unparalleled insight into Spring application development and demonstrates the strength of SpringSource’s build, run manage solutions and our commitment to helping developers build world-class, modern applications,” said Rod Johnson, general manager of the SpringSource division of VMware. “No other Java application server can provide the level of detail into Spring application performance that the Spring Insight console offers. Moreover, these capabilities are made available for free with no code changes required by the developer.”

Solution Demonstrated at SpringOne 2GX

SpringOne 2GX is SpringSource’s annual conference focused on the use of Spring technologies in enterprise Java, along with related technologies including Apache Tomcat, Groovy, Grails and Hyperic. This year’s conference, which is taking place October 19-22 in New Orleans, features breakout sessions discussing both SpringSource tc Server and SpringSource tc Server Developer Edition.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
