Developers learn to flex their SOA configuration muscle at WSO2 webinar

Mountain View, CA – November 14, 2008 – Conventional wisdom is that an enterprise service bus acts as the central backplane in a SOA. However, this proven scenario is not optimal for every enterprise, and developers need the flexibility to implement other configurations for their Web service mediation.

In many cases, SOAs connecting multiple platforms are better served by a network of ESBs managed by one or more registries. Such configurations have often been cost-prohibitive with traditional middleware. Now, lightweight, open source ESBs and registries are making networked Web service mediation accessible, affordable and easier to manage.

WSO2, the open source SOA company, has been leading the charge toward flexible SOA configurations with the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and WSO2 Registry. The lightweight WSO2 ESB embeds the WSO2 Registry to store configuration and metadata. Meanwhile, the WSO2 Registry product works with one or more ESBs to provide run-time governance and policy enforcement. Together, these products give developers unprecedented options for configuring and managing their Web service mediation networks.

Webinar: WSO2 ESB and Registry Synergies for SOA Configuration

The WSO2 webinar “WSO2 Synergies: ESB and Registry” will introduce developers to the WSO2 ESB and the WSO2 Registry, and then focus on how these two technologies can collaborate to achieve goals such as centralized configuration and control of a mediation network, automatic run-time enforcement of design-time policies, and business activity monitoring. The webinar will be held Tuesday, November 18, from 9 a.m.-10 a.m. Pacific.

Presenting will be Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2 architect, who focuses on vertical market capabilities, including financial services. Asanka is also a committer of the Apache Software Foundation where he contributes to the Apache Synapse ESB project, upon which the WSO2 ESB is based.
