Xi-Batch is a very flexible job scheduling and workload management system. It provides time-based scheduling as well as load management, dependency-based job execution, and job prioritization. Each job's environment (environment variables and I/O default paths) is established by the system based on user ID. It can manage jobs in a single server or across a network of any number of servers, even different UNIX/Linux platforms. It can be controlled by CLI, a GUI (Motif), A Windows client, a Web-browser, or through an API. It works as an intelligent job dispatcher in grids or other server clusters.
The zen Platform is a Java development environment for J2SE/J2EE. It eases and accelerates the Java application development by visual methods (RAD). Complete applications can be modelled in an intuitive fashion without the need for technical expertise. The complexity of Java and J2EE programming is tremendously hidden - reducing the learning curve for Java novices. Java experts are by no means restricted - they may apply their knowledge without limitations. Application flexibility is a core feature of the platform, which is delivered as an Eclipse plugin.
