Red Hat announced yesterday it's expanding its JBoss SOA platform, and judging by InfoWorld's coverage, this news is all about better support for integration.
The JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.3 and Jboss Operations Network 2.1 include the like-named ESB, JBPM and JBoss Rules.
Pierre Fricke, Red Hat's director for SOA product line management, said the platform's designed to integrate services in a SOA and then orchestrate the services into processes that can be automated, adding, "It's basically an SOA integration platform based on an SOA."
The updated platform also supports additional scripting languages, for the non-Java programmers out there. There's support to aid non-developers build business rules and the ESB also includes features such as improved Web services integration and gateway listeners.
