Includes updated enterprise services bus, web services integration and management tools
Open-source firm Red Hat has launched a new version of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform, which it claims to be designed to integrate applications, services, transactions and business process components into an architecture for automating business and IT processes.
With enhanced functionality to update its JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio, the new platform includes an updated enterprise services bus with enhanced protocol listeners, web services integration, management consoles and transformation and a new rules engine that can be managed by JBoss Enterprise business rules management system, Red Hat said.
In addition, the company also expanded the middleware portfolio with the JBoss Developer Studio 3.0 platform that includes expanded support for all of the JBoss Enterprise Platforms; JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, SOA, Portal and Data Services platforms. The toolset is built on the new release of Eclipse 3.5, and includes development capabilities for building SOA services and data transformation tools for developing integration services.
The JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is designed to integrate applications and services in cloud and on-premise deployments allowing enterprises to further optimise their IT infrastructure cost and flexibility.
Craig Muzilla, vice president of middleware at Red Hat, said: “Both of these platforms add new and critical capabilities to the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio, and help to form a broad range of open source middleware reference architecture which enables organisations to address their application development, deployment and integration needs.”
