Hewlett-Packard Co. on Monday announced its HP Core Services Framework (CSF), a developer platform to further the interoperablity of Java application services. The release is among the first implementations of the Java Services Framework specification.
It is intended to give developers and independent software vendors the ability to include Java services and application programming interfaces into new or existing applications, John H. Capobianco, general manager of HP's middleware division, said in a statement released at the 2001 JavaOne conference in San Francsico.
The framework also can define practices for code reuse and sharing, streamlined development, and a uniform approach to the life cycle, he said.
The CSF is scheduled to be available for free download in late June at www.hp.bluestone.com.
The CSF supports APIs that include Java Management Extension (JMX), Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI), and Java API for XML Parsing (JAXP).
