SOA Software has expanded certification of the Microsoft .NET Framework to include the Microsoft Managed Services Engine (MSE) as a governed service platform.

This expansion, which builds on previous certifications of Microsoft BizTalk Server and the .NET Framework, allows customers to use MSE as part of a heterogeneous enterprise service-oriented architecture (SOA) environment sharing services with other commercial SOA platforms like SAP NetWeaver, IBM WebSphere, BEA, and Oracle, as well as RedHat and other open source providers, according to the company.

Through SOA Software's Policy Manager, security administrators can centrally define policies for services leveraging automated governance approval processes.

"The certification of Governed Service Platforms advances the discipline of Integrated SOA Governance Automation," said Frank Martinez, executive vice president of SOA Software, in a statement. "Microsoft is deploying the MSE to provide customers with advanced service virtualization capabilities and along with SOA Software's membership in the Business Process Alliance (BPA), this certification gives them the confidence that SOA Software's products will preserve the fidelity of the governance models, structures and mechanisms supporting their enterprise SOA program."

SOA Software said customers will benefit from its Integrated SOA Governance Automation tool for .NET in these ways:

  • To enable and coordinate enterprise-level service lifecycle management across the virtual services through automation and workflow tailored to fit an organization's roles and policies.
  • To leverage SOA software's end-to-end policy support between clients and services to more quickly enable enterprise governance models.
  • Make services they expose from applications running on .NET Framework visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across other platforms; and
  • To make services they design and build using other platforms like SAP and open source environments visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across their .NET Framework applications.
