Red Hat has upgraded its enterprise offerings for SOA with the release of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.3 and JBoss Operations Network 2.1. The focus of these upgrades are to cut cost and complexity of SOA projects, and bring more visibility to SOA management and team development.

The upgrades to JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform and JBoss Operations Network will feature cooperative support and will allow enterprises to remotely monitor and manage their open source SOA (service-oriented architecture) deployments, the company said.

"Our SOA strategy aims to drive down the cost and complexity of implementing service oriented architectures with a comprehensive portfolio of enterprise-class, open source middleware. JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.3 and JBoss Operations Network 2.1 together are another example of our commitment to accelerating the adoption of hardened, secure and stable open source middleware solutions that deliver on this strategy, " said Pierre Fricke, director, SOA product line management at Red Hat, in a statement.

New features in JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.3 include:
  • ESB Features - New gateway listeners, a declarative security model, improved web services integration and additional scripting languages will help enterprises accelerate adoption of open source SOA by allowing them to more easily integrate and deploy web services.
  • Rules Features - Stateful Rules services, decision tables and Rule agent support will further enable business event processing with an event-driven architecture (EDA). These features will also allow non-developers to construct and rapidly deploy business rules.

  • For its part, JBoss Operations Network 2.1 brings improved management for JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform and helps companies reduce the costs of managing their enterprise SOA deployments, while the SOA support features help them accelerate their use of open source SOA, according to Red Hat.

    New capabilities in the JBoss Operations Network 2.1 include:
  • Scalable and centralized management for JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform
  • Remote platform configuration and deployment
