Mountain View, CA – May 4, 2010 – WSO2 today announced the launch of WSO2 Carbon 3.0, the newest release of WSO2’s award-winning, fully componentized middleware platform, which is based on the popular OSGi technology framework.
WSO2 Carbon 3.0 continues to redefine the state-of-the-art of middleware by providing a cohesive middleware platform that adapts to the specific needs of each enterprise IT project—locally and in the cloud. The new Component Manager in WSO2 Carbon 3.0 provides the first interface that lets developers simply point-and-click to tailor a rich set of middleware functionality into a customized lean solution. The new Web Services Dynamic Discovery (WS-Discovery) support automates the configuration of a project spanning multiple Web service endpoints. WSO2 Carbon 3.0 also features enhanced integration of the WSO2 Governance Registry across the platform, facilitating governance and monitoring across large clustered deployments and cloud implementations.
“For too long, enterprise developers have had to adjust their IT projects to the parameters of the middleware software they use,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. “WSO2 Carbon 3.0 puts IT developers in the driver’s seat for the first time. Now it’s simply a matter of choosing the middleware capabilities required, and Carbon automatically handles the provisioning—no integration required. It is the next step in the evolution of IT application and service deployment.”
WSO2 also announced the availability of a round of new versions of its popular open source middleware products based on the new Carbon 3.0 platform: WSO2 Web Services Application Server (WSAS) 3.2, WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) 3.0, WSO2 Governance Registry 3.5, and WSO2 Identity Server 3.0.
