Building an SOA Infrastructure on Open Source Technologies

Building an SOA Infrastructure on Open Source Technologies

Open source technologies have played a role in Web services and SOA for years. As large commercial vendors introduce more extensive open source SOA solutions and traditional open source providers broaden their solutions to address more SOA requirements, it is now possible to build an enterprise-ready infrastructure for service-based integration on an open source foundation. This session introduces the requirements for an open source SOA technology stack, including integration of disparate components, SOA standards and operational requirements, plus key requirements for any open source solution: technical maturity, quality of support, breadth of acceptance, and fit with commercial operations.
