Open Source SOA from Red Hat, SOA Software

Lora Bentley

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is gaining increasing acceptance as a means of integration in the enterprise, and observers say it will penetrate even further if OASIS ratifies proposed standards that a group of vendors including IBM, BEA, HP and Sun has recently submitted.

 

Open source adoption in the enterprise also continues to increase. Users say it saves licensing costs, frees them from so-called "vendor lock-in," enables customization to meet unique needs ... the list could go on ad nauseum.

 

If SOA is a good thing, and open source is a good thing, how much better would open source SOA be? Red Hat and SOA Software are about to find out.

 

Baseline reported yesterday that the companies are partnering to allow companies that use Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise Middleware to deploy SOA apps to also use SOA Software's Service Manager and Workbench to manage their service-oriented architectures and associated applications.

 

The partnership demonstrates the disruptive nature of open source. Once again, it's making its presence known in a market that has been "dominated" by proprietary vendors, according to an SOA Software spokesperson.
