Open source SOA vendor WSO2 is taking 'open' one step further by making available a stand-alone version of its WSO2 Carbon Core componentized SOA platform. The new Carbon Core framework, built to comply with the OSGi specs, allows devs to create custom SOA services, said WSO2 execs.

Prior to the stand-alone version of Carbon Core, architects and devs needed to deploy one of WSO2's core infrastructure products, including ESB web services application server, business process server or registry. The stand-alone edition of Carbon Core allows devs to deploy their WSO2-based 'Carbon SOA components any way they want, according to WSO2's founder and CEO Sanjiva Weerawarana.

"Developers should be able to focus on innovating SOA services that can serve their organizations in new, creative and profitable ways, not on integrating SOA vendors' software," Weerawarana said in a statement. "With [stand-alone] WSO2 Carbon Core, IT professionals can create highly customized and optimized SOA applications while ensuring enterprise-scale performance and reliability in a production environment."

The WSO2 Carbon Core uses the Equinox p2 provisioning component to extend OSGi-based component integration. The company said the Carbon framework delivers enterprise-class capabilities for management, security, clustering, logging, statistics, and tracing. It also features easy-to-use capabilities, such as the "Try-It" testing function.

For those architects and devs who like the bundled WSO2 open source SOA framework, the company released upgrades to its Web Services Application Server 3.1 and ESB 2.1, which adds complete REST support, sequence editor improvements, service-level policy capabilities, and eventing.
