Oracle Corp. on Monday launched a suite of applications for building event-driven architectures.

An EDA is a form of distributed computing in which applications respond to messages sent from other applications. An EDA often leverages service-oriented architectures, which companies use to link internal applications and connect them to computer systems of suppliers and partners.

Oracles EDA Suite is based on its Fusion Middleware products that allow components to register the events they publish and see and subscribe to events published by other components. The middleware also provides event handling.

The suite includes a design time environment, a messaging environment that handles data transmission and routing, a rules engine for defining business policies on events, and tools for analyzing and monitoring events. Oracle, based in Redwood Shores, Calif., also offers pre-built software for radio-frequency identification systems.

Among the industries Oracle is targeting with its EDA Suite are financial services, commercial banking, securities trading, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, retail, government and manufacturing.
