Oracle Puma web servers up for sale

The web server and software suite that runs on Oracle Pumas web server platform, the J2EE web server stack, has been sold by Oracle for $4.1 million to a Chinese company, a person familiar with the deal said.

The transaction, the person said, was completed Monday.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the transaction is not public.

The sale was finalized late Monday, according to the person.

The buyer was not disclosed.

Oracle said in March that it was ending its partnership with Oracle J2ee, the company behind Oracle JVMs and other web server products.

Oracle JVM products are also available in Java, the native language for server applications, for use on the cloud and in embedded systems.

Oracle announced in March it was selling its JVM business.

Oracle has been struggling to win back customers and make it more attractive for new customers after its $13.7 billion acquisition of the software company Salesforce.com in January.

Salesforce said in February that it had closed a $6.3 billion acquisition for a new cloud computing business.

The deal for Oracle was expected to close next month.

The company’s Java platform, which includes Oracle JBoss and Java SE, was a major selling point for the Oracle acquisition, with some companies using it as a primary source of Java to build web-based applications.

It was also used as a key component for Oracle’s Java Server Resource Manager, a suite of technologies designed to manage Oracle’s database, virtual machine, and virtual network infrastructure.
