According to Jonathan Halliday, Solutions Architect at Arjuna Technologies: "Java Database performance and scalability were key factors in our decision to include FirstSQL/J Enterprise Server. We wanted our customers to experience the full capability of Arjuna+JBoss and the database included had to meet and exceed our expectations."
”Arjuna has worked closely with us to enhance use of FirstSQL/J Enterprise Server with JBoss and their product. The result validates FirstSQL as a J2EE class database server that fully supports XA/JTA functionality. We are pleased to be associated with Arjuna.” said Lee Fesperman, CEO of FFE Software, Inc.
