BEA doubling research staff in India

BEA Systems Inc. announced Wednesday that it plans to double the number of employees at its research and development (R&D) centre in Bangalore, India.

The centre currently employs about 180 staffers, which will be doubled in the next one year or so, said Shailender Kumar, BEA’s country head for India.

BEA, a San Jose, Calif.-based vendor of Java middleware, has about 1,200 staff in R&D worldwide, spread across three centres in the U.S., and one centre each in India, Sweden, and China, Kumar added.

The R&D centre in Bangalore is involved in the development of key BEA products lines, including its WebLogic server and the company’s new AquaLogic line of service infrastructure products for managing the services-oriented architecture (SOA) lifecycle in heterogeneous environments, said Bhavin Sheth, engineering manager of the centre.

The centre also has about 60 staffers offering product support to BEA customers and partners, Kumar said.
