DataMirror® (NASDAQ: DMCX - News; TSX: DMC - News) today announced that Transformation Server has completed the BEA Validation Program and is now verified to integrate with BEA WebLogic Platform 8.1. By completing this program, DataMirror demonstrates that its unique Change Data Capture (CDC) technology is designed to seamlessly integrate with BEA Systems WebLogic by providing real-time data from systems such as DB2, Oracle, Sybase, MS SQL, UDB, EDIFACT, and XML directly to WebLogic. Together, DataMirror and BEA can deliver comprehensive real-time data integration for dynamic Web applications and business process management that can help enable real-time decision making.
