Lutris Enhydra server

Lutris Technologies is posting on its Web site an early release of its Enhydra open source application server for enterprise users. Enhydra Enterprise is the result of a joint engineering effort with France’s Bullsoft. Lutris had rebuilt the Enhydra core to act as a manager of various kinds of services, such as the various Java APIs. The companies then pulled apart Bullsoft’s Java 2 Enterprise Edition application server, codenamed “Jonas,” and incorporated three key pieces into Enhydra. The three services are the Java Transaction Manager 1.0, EJB 1.1, and the Java Database Service, which calls to external relational databases via the JDBC interface. Enhydra Enterprise includes the same core Enhydra code as the standard and professional editions, but with the additional J2EE services, according to Lutris. The software is open source, and downloadable from, but Lutris does offer fee-based versions, which include documentation, sample applications and technical support. Pricing for enterprise edition has not yet been set, but it will likely be US$1,000, according to Lutris. Lutris in Santa Clara, Calif., can be found at

Prices listed are in US currency.
