ORLANDO, USA: WSO2, the open source SOA company, demonstrated several technical collaboration initiatives to extend interoperability across Microsoft .NET Framework, Java, and other Web services platforms.
Through these initiatives, the company will link .NET with WSO2's service-oriented architecture (SOA) middleware leveraging open source projects from the Apache Software Foundation. WSO2 will also enhance the performance of its software running on Microsoft platforms. With this collaboration, enterprise customers will have more choices than ever for addressing the demands of today's heterogeneous SOAs.
The initiatives were showcased as part of the ongoing Microsoft Tech•Ed North America 2008 IT Professionals conference -- June 10-13, 2008.
The first initiative, demonstrating the breadth of interoperability across standard Web services—.NET, Java, and C-based platforms such as PHP—was highlighted at a keynote presentation by Bob Muglia, senior vice president of the Server and Tools Business at Microsoft. During the keynote, the StockTrader 2.0 demo composite application service, based on the .NET Configuration Service 2.0 and distributed Apache/WSO2 middleware components, showed how interoperable implementations of Web service protocols allow a seamless mix-and-match of the application's components, including the:
* User interface: .NET smart client and PHP Web application
* Business processing service layer: .NET and PHP
* Order processing service: .NET, Java and PHP
WSO2's support for the full WS-Security stacks in both the WSO2 Web Services Application Server, based on Apache Axis2/Java, and the WSO2 Web Services Framework for PHP, based on Apache Axis2/C, ensured enterprise-class protection throughout the process.
