Talend expands portfolio to include ESB Standard Edition
Open source data management specialist Talend has announced the release of what it calls "the industry's first platform for data services". Known as Talend ESB Standard Edition, the open source enterprise service bus (ESB) is to be a key component in the company's unified platform for data services. The company offers, as examples of applications of ESB, customers using it to connect back-end financial applications to a sales front end in the finance sector and the use of ESB to connect legacy systems to a BPM system in an insurance company.
Powered by Apache CXF services framework, Apache Camel integration framework and Apache ActiveMQ enterprise messaging, the initial release of ESB Standard Edition also features Service Locator capabilities that provide automatic failover and load balancing through a newly developed Apache Zookeeper-based extension for dynamic endpoint registration and lookup. The Security Token Service (STS) framework supports SAML 2.0 (Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0) in order to federate security credentials and Service Activity Monitoring enables the capture and analysis of service activity – this includes service response times, traffic patterns and auditing.
At the same time, the company also introduced version 4.2 of its flagship Data Integration, Data Quality and Master Data Management (MDM) solutions. New features include integration with Talend ESB, such as the ability to generate Talend Jobs inside of Talend ESB, and new XML data mapping and transformation capabilities.
Talend ESB Standard Edition is available to download from the project's site. Hosted on GitHub, Talend ESB Standard Edition source code is licensed under the Apache 2.0 License. A commercial edition is also available through the company's sales and distribution channels.
