The Pitch Here at SDN we like to try new things from time to time. It’s time. This December 15th at 11:00 AM EST, 5:00 PM CET, we’d like to invite you to join a conversation about upcoming SAP J2EE process architecture innovations that will employ some of the best things we’ve learned on the ABAP side of the house, namely, inter-process communication and session isolation based on shared memory use: a Java VM “work process.” What makes this a conversation? Unlike most of the webinars you might attend, all lines will be open for comment during the talk. We’ll present, you’ll comment, we’ll talk. See the difference? More on our topic: New SAP J2EE Process Architecture Features Some of the difference between the stability of our Java platform and our ABAP platform is found in the process architectures of the two environments. Traditionally, each java process has hosted the work of multiple user sessions concurrently. If one session fails, it can effect the stability of all other sesisons hosted in that process. In the ABAP world we’ve implemented work processes that isolate user sessions and protect concurrent sessions from adverse effect in the event of a problem. By adopting a more ABAP-like approach to user session support then, we can provide rock solid runtimes for Java applications similar to that which we provide for our ABAP users.
