Components are king in the world of pluggable ESBs ...

In the world of light-weight pluggable ESBs supporting a SOA approach (or EAI, or MoM, ...) the richness of the component ecosystem is a very important aspect.  Part of Project OpenESB's purpose is to provide a standards-based framework onto which components can be fabricated and easily deployed.

Recently Frank implemented a nice page redesign that lists the components and allows you to select different views, such as by contributor, by status, etc.  Nice job Frank :)

Security provisioning through the ESB

Project OpenESB is a community that is intended to derive multiple solutions and components all sharing a single platform based on JBI.  Another example of this is a solution in a sub-project called keychain.  Keychain is an early stage project that attempts to solve the problem of how to provision identities against legacy applications.  Essentially it provides a gateway, built on top of the ESB platform, that exposes an "SPML compliant" provisioning interface which can be accessed by any SPML compliant application or just send an SPML document across HTTP/SOAP.

The gateway will then route this request, suitably transformed, to the legacy application to execute the particular provisioning (create, update, delete of user information) request.  Again, this is an early stage project that is driving the creation of new ESB adaptors and will later drive the evolution of the platform into an "appliance-like" package.  So far, to show the breadth of the potential application of KeyChain, there are early examples of provisioning to RACF, Salesforce.com, and LDAP.

GlassFish ESB arrives ...

Our first milestone for GlassFish ESB is now available. This commercially supported form of our open source community technology has been a regularly requested step for us to make.  We would have done it sooner but had been busy with the major release of our larger Composite Application Suite which shares the same foundation. More on the timeline for our final release and the contents of GlassFish ESB can be found here.

Establishing OasisEbb

R6 and NetBeansOasisEbb is established and is my first public blog.  I will use to to track our teams progress in creating new levels of innovation with tools and platforms for delivering SOA and Business Integration solutions on an ESB framework.  I couldn't think of a great name for the blog so I resorted to finding an anagram of the core themes that I will be discussing (SOA, ESB and BI).  By using the helpful tool I got the answer! If only all things in life where so easy! :)

I returned to Sun just over 2.5 years ago after Sun acquired SeeBeyond.  Since then I have been working on our SOA and Business Integration products, leading our team to reinvent the core product while providing an evolutionary roadmap for our existing customers.  Back in June this year we released the latest version of the Java Composite Application Suite, the ESB Suite and a new MDM Suite.  Very soon we will be releasing our new, light-weight ESB product GlassFish ESB.

GlassFish ESB will be our teams first product to be 100% derived from our open source communities: Project OpenESB, NetBeans and GlassFish.
