Sonic update aims to speed up SOA projects

Sonic Software has extended its enterprise service bus technology with the latest release of the Sonic ESB platform.

The ESB can help companies manage and orchestrate web services as part of a service oriented architecture (SOA).

An SOA is an IT system that runs applications that map and automate business processes. It uses standards-based software to  increase interoperability and reduce IT costs.

Sonic ESB 7.0 features a new development framework based on the open source Eclipse tools. It is designed to accelerate the modelling, configuration, testing and deployment of SOA projects across large, distributed environments.

Sonic ESB 7.0 supports four key web services standards: WS-Reliablemessaging, WS-Addressing, WS-Security and WS-Policy.

Sonic Software first developed an ESB in 2002, aiming to bridge legacy systems with web services. In 2005, it brought out its ESB continuous availability architecture, an environment that continues to operate in the face of hardware and network failures.

An example of where SOAs are being used is credit card companies' automated processes, said Dave Chappell, technology vice-president at Sonic.
