Eclipse SOA Industry Working Group
Eclipse announce Equinox-based SOA platform.
The Group aims to define an Equinox-based SOA platform to enhance the interoperability between different vendor solutions, and to provide a technology platform for new SOA projects. The platform will consist of tools and runtime components for vendors, system integrators and enterprises for SOA deployments. It will focus on areas such as REST and SOAP support for OSGi remote services, and tool support for developing JAX-WS web services.
The working group is a collaborative effort between various organisations, all of whom will use the SOA platform for their own commercial solutions. Companies taking part in the initiative, include Engineering Group, itemis, Obeo and Sopera.
The first release of the SOA Platform Package is available now. An updated version will be released as part of the Helios release train in June 2010.
