REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 16 /PRNewswire/ — Replay Solutions, a provider of innovative solutions for maximizing software quality, today formally announced the general availability of ReplayDIRECTOR for Java EE, a software recording and replay technology for enterprise Java applications.

ReplayDIRECTOR for Java EE allows companies, teams, or individuals to make deep recordings of their software applications and servers at any stage of the application life cycle. ReplayDIRECTOR virtualizes and re-executes applications, so that when errors occur, users can fast-forward directly to the root cause. ReplayDIRECTOR will reproduce any application errors and can be coupled with any standard debugger, profiler or diagnostic tool to quickly correct errors in the code.

"Issue resolution is paramount among problems throughout the application life cycle," said Theresa Lanowitz of Voke Inc. "Traditionally, fixing issues has been less of a problem than finding or recreating them, but with Replay's technology locating errors in development, quality or production efficiently zeros in on bugs to maximize time and cost savings. Replay virtualizes environments from its recordings to re-execute applications and gives companies a navigable map of the issues in their real IT environment — it's a smart, new approach that can show real substantial value to the enterprise Java EE market as time and effort spent searching for production issues becomes trivial."

The Java EE market has evolved as a standard for enterprise applications. IT environment complexity for large software enterprises has grown with the emergence of shorter release cycles, multi-tier applications, dispersed development teams using various platforms, Web 2.0 and SOA. ReplayDIRECTOR for Java EE combats the challenges of added complexity by eliminating the search and trial approach for recreating and fixing issues that hold up production.

ReplayDIRECTOR allows users to drill down into source code during replay to quickly identify the root cause of an issue and eliminate unnecessary IT costs and time spent searching for issues that cannot be recreated or easily found. Deploying ReplayDIRECTOR for Java EE offers several benefits for expediting issue resolution:

— Cost Reduction – ReplayDIRECTOR deploys quickly and easily on applications, systems, and datacenters. Because ReplayDIRECTOR re-executes code during replay, root cause analysis is fast and simple. Replay has eliminated up to 80 percent of the time required to find and resolve application issues, resulting in significant cost savings, faster application deployment and higher ROI for customers — Higher Quality Applications – From simple applications to large data centers with multi-tier applications, ReplayDIRECTOR customers have lowered the overall number of issues released in their software. — Faster Time to Market – ReplayDIRECTOR offers precision and speed and has allowed customers to shorten release cycles and hit their ship dates by increasing the efficiency of problem resolution. ReplayDIRECTOR optimizes the day-to-day workflow of quality and production teams and has reduced up to 65% of the workflow process. — Increased Availability – Fewer issues means better uptime. ReplayDIRECTOR improves software quality resulting in higher availability, and less downtime.

ReplayDIRECTOR is a smart technology. Every line of code that an application executes while ReplayDIRECTOR is recording will be re-executed in precisely the same sequence during playback. Replay is a fast-acting solution — no source code changes are required and recordings can be played anywhere, without requiring the original environment, inputs, databases, or other servers, all of which are virtualized during replay.

ReplayDIRECTOR is designed to deploy in any environment and have a minimal effect on the environment. The percentage overhead for deploying ReplayDIRECTOR is consistently in the low single digits, allowing applications to run at near full speed while recording, and faster than full speed during re-execution. ReplayDIRECTOR is a lightweight technology that has minimal performance impact, making it ideal to run in production environments as an 'always on' solution.

"Running business critical applications in an online production environment is no easy task, and bumps in the road are inevitable," said Mick Giles, Director of Online Operations for North America & Asia at Electronic Arts. "ReplayDIRECTOR delivers value by providing better uptime and faster problem resolution. Our customers depend on smooth running applications, and time is of the essence when correcting issues. Replay understands how important this is to our online production environment."
