VMware Supports BEA's Effort To Virtualize Java Apps

At last week's VMworld, BEA and VMware announced their partnership on a project to allow BEA's Java applications to work within virtual environments created with VMware's tools.

BEA's LiquidVM VI Client Extension will work as a VMware Virtual Infrastructure plug-in. According to a press release, the extension will allow VMware VirtualCenter "users to create, configure and manage LiquidVM-based virtual machines, such as WebLogic Server Virtual Edition or any other Java application" from within VirtualCenter.

VirtualCenter is comprised of a suite of tools for centralized provisioning, monitoring and management of virtualized environments.

According to a BEA press release, LiquidVM "is a virtualization-enabled version of the JRockit JVM that can run on a hypervisor without a standard OS."

VMware said it has plans- to include BEA's LiquidVM VI Client Extension in future versions of VirtualCenter.
