WSO2 adds three platforms to Microsoft .NET SOA interoperability demo at OSCON 2008

.NET interoperability extends beyond PHP and Java to Include Ruby, Spring and Perl

Portland, OR – July 23, 2008 – WSO2, the open source SOA company, will demonstrate extended service-oriented architecture (SOA) interoperability with the Microsoft .NET Framework at the OSCON 2008 Open Source Convention being held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, OR. Featured will be a StockTrader 2.0 composite application that highlights new .NET interoperability with Ruby, Spring and Perl in addition to the interoperability with PHP and Java that was highlighted at Microsoft Tech Tech•Ed North America 2008 IT Professionals conference last month. The demonstrations will take place at a co-branded booth for Microsoft and WSO2 in the OSCON Expo Hall, July 23-24, 2008.

StockTrader 2.0 is the result of a mutual effort between WSO2 and Microsoft to provide a reference application for software architects and developers implementing today’s heterogeneous SOAs. It demonstrates the several ways in which they can create composite Web services by bridging Microsoft .NET-based applications to other environments using WSO2’s integrated, heterogeneous SOA platform.

StockTrader 2.0 Demo Combines .NET, Java, PHP, Ruby, Spring and Perl

Where: Microsoft-WSO2 Booth at OSCON 2008 Expo
When: Wednesday, July 23, 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m. and 6:00-7:30 p.m. (reception). Thursday, July 24, 10 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Demo: The StockTrader 2.0 demo composite application is based on distributed Microsoft .NET and Apache/WSO2 middleware components. It illustrates how interoperable implementations of Web service protocols allow a seamless mix-and-match of the application’s components at runtime, which can be dynamically virtualized against physical resources on-premises and across the cloud.

Components included in the demo are:

  • Choice of User interface: .NET smart client, PHP and Ruby Web applications
  • Choice of business processing service: .NET, Java, PHP, Spring and Perl
  • Choice of order processing service: .NET, Java, PHP, Ruby, Spring and Perl

WSO2 provides enterprise-class protection of service interactions with support for the full WS-Security stacks in the WSO2 Web Services Application Server and Web Services Framework for Spring, both based on Apache Axis2/Java, and in the WSO2 Web Services Frameworks for PHP, Ruby and Perl, which are based on Apache Axis2/C.

A download of the StockTrader 2.0 demo is available on the WSO2 Oxygen Tank developer portal for SOA at . The demo currently features .NET interoperability with PHP and Java. The expanded version, which adds interoperability with Ruby, Spring and Perl, will be available for download shortly.
