This one's for the Microsoft devotees. I know you're out there-you work in a small or maybe even mid-sized company, and you really don't give two figs about anything unless Microsoft's got a solution.
And then again, maybe you're not that devoted to Microsoft, but you are a .NET shop and you're curious about how SOA will fit in with that.
This month, Redmond Developer takes a look at the governance options for .NET SOA frameworks. This isn't a broad piece, however. Instead, it's a look at which third-party partners will provide SOA governance support for Microsoft's Managed Services Engine (MSE), which was released last year.
The article explains that MSE was developed by Microsoft's consulting branch and built on the Microsoft Server Platform and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). It enables "service virtualization via a service repository," the article states.
The SOA governance vendors who are thus far on board for providing SOA governance support for MSE are AmberPoint Inc., Progress Software and SOA Software.
