Celtix Enterprise

leave a comment »

IONA, the company I work for, has just released an Open Source bundle called Celtix Enterprise. It’s a collection of Open Source elements geared towards helping you create your distributed SOA infrastructure — we’ve integrated and tested these.

So where’s the return? IONA is doing the for-pay training, consultancy and support for this product. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Release the Hounds!

Or, in this case, the incubating projects. Apache Yoko incubator has published an M1 release. Yoko (no, I don’t know why it’s called that) is a fast Java CORBA server which can be used in Open Source JVM and JEE implementations. Hot on it’s heels, it looks like the Apache CXF (yes, I know why it is called that – don’t ask) is gearing up to an imminent 2.0-M1 release. CXF should be very interesting to people who are doing JAX-WS service development – I have been using it myself in another project and it has worked very well.

Back in the SOA Tools Platform project we’re adding UI support for JAX-WS service development and we are testing against CXF to make sure that we are generating the correct classes and dealing with the JAX-WS and other annotations in the right way.
