Press Release Summary:
Covering enterprise-class development through deployment, StreamBaseÂ® v6.0 environment lets users build, test, debug, profile, and provision complex event processing (CEP) applications. StreamBase Visual Debugger - for interactive troubleshooting and analysis of application logic and data - does not require user to leave Studio authoring environment, and Enterprise Profiler supports testing, profiling, and provisioning of CEP application-associates software and hardware resources.
Original Press Release:
StreamBase 6.0 Delivers the First Visual Debugging, Profiling, and Testing Tools for CEP
Features Represent a Major Milestone in the Maturity of CEP Technology
NEW YORK, June 10 -- StreamBase Systems, Inc. today announced the release of StreamBase version 6.0, the latest version of their award-winning complex event processing (CEP) software platform. StreamBase(R) version 6.0 is the first CEP platform to deliver critical features that enables enterprise-class development, testing, and deployment features. These features further advance StreamBase's lead as the easiest and most reliable environment to build, test, debug, profile, and provision CEP applications.
"As the CEP market continues to grow, business analysts and developers demand more sophisticated tools. StreamBase has always had a singular focus on ease-of-use for business analysts and IT developers to graphically build, deploy, and evolve applications. Version 6.0 further deepens this commitment by not only making StreamBase easier to use, but also by making it easier to debug, test, and support," said Chris Risley, CEO at StreamBase.
All of these features are fully integrated with the StreamBase's high-performance CEP platform. Among the new tools in StreamBase 6.0 are:
-- StreamBase Visual Debugger: A first for the CEP industry, the StreamBase Visual Debugger allows customers to interactively troubleshoot and analyze application logic and data without leaving the Studio authoring environment. Users can set breakpoints and inspect CEP application logic as data streams flow through the system, including the ability to examine the complete history of each data item through the application. Visual debugging helps developers and business analysts more efficiently find and correct errors in enterprise CEP applications.
-- Enterprise Profiler and Real-Time StreamBase Manager: The Enterprise Profiler supports the testing, profiling, and provisioning of software and hardware resources associated with a CEP application. Developers can run StreamBase applications and view reports to conduct detailed analysis of the CPU time and execution time of each operator within a StreamBase application. The results can then be used to optimize application performance through the use of multi-core CPUs and StreamBase's multi-threaded operators. The Enterprise Profiler helps StreamBase developers understand and optimize their specific CEP application performance.
-- Unit Testing: StreamBase's Unit Testing allows developers to record and store tests simply by recording actions from the StreamBase Studio environment. Members of a multi-member development team can work together in parallel on applications while QA departments can qualify changes using the Unit Testing command line batch interface. The Unit Testing feature helps reduce application errors and enables teams to more quickly and reliably develop enterprise CEP applications.
Mark Palmer, President and COO at StreamBase, said, "StreamBase 6.0 contains features that are an industry first for CEP with its Visual Debugger, Enterprise Profiler, and Unit Testing framework. These advances make StreamBase the easy choice for serious CEP application development."
"Initial successes for complex event processing technology in capital markets have lead to an interest in expanding the technology across multiple efforts and development teams," said Adam Honore, Senior Analyst at Aite Group. "For CEP to become an enterprise-capable technology, tools enabling sound development methodology are essential for building confidence and evangelizing potential new users."
