EclipseCon 2010: Red Hat updates SOA tools
At this year's EclipseCon conference, which runs from the 22nd to the 25th of March, Red Hat has announced the release of version 5.0 of its JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform (SOA-P v5). According to a post on the JBoss blog by Pierre Fricke, Red Hat's JBoss SOA product line Director, JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform v5 is aimed at delivering the "benefits of SOA and cloud computing to enterprise business processes".
The latest release of the service-oriented architecture platform features an enhanced registry (UDDI v3), new administrator consoles, a new transformation tool (XSLT) and enhancements to existing tools, making it easier for developers to create new enterprise service bus (ESB) projects. Other changes and updates include version 5 of JBoss Rules that works with JBoss Enterprise BRMS and better integration with both cloud services, like Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and in-house environments.
Additionally, Red Hat has released version 3.0 of its JBoss Developer Studio, its integrated development environment (IDE) that includes and integrates the 3.5 branch of Eclipse. Its supported web frameworks include, for example, the Google Web Toolkit (GWT), RichFaces, Seam, Spring and Struts. Using Developer Studio 3, developers can build rich web and enterprise applications.
