Bea Systems

AquaLogic Service Bus 2.1

BEA Systems has been a leader in the pure business integration space, but, until recently, the company has not been perceived as a strong presence in the emerging area of service-oriented architecture integration.

That changed, however, with the release last year of AquaLogic Service Bus 2.1, with which BEA takes a very impressive step forward in the world of SOAs.

The Excellence Awards judges in this category were greatly impressed with the extensive management capabilities that the BEA platform brings to the difficult task of deploying, tracking and creating the services that enterprises increasingly rely on to stay connected. Also, AquaLogic is impressively broad in its support of core Web services standards and Web application technologies.

AquaLogic Service Bus provides well-designed tools for managing all aspects of an SOA, and it doesnt hurt that it is based on BEAs excellent WebLogic application server-providing a very high level of scalability and enterprise-class performance.



Hibernate 3.1

When one thinks about the high-level world of object-oriented languages and relational mapping, open-source products dont often spring to mind.

That should change with JBoss Hibernate 3.1, which provides a powerful tool for enterprise-class database integration in J2EE (Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition)-based environments. And, as with many successful core open-source server products, organizations already may be using Hibernate without knowing it, as it is integrated with several popular open-source server applications and portals.

Sonic Software

Sonic SOA Suite 6.1

Sonic is one of the most well-established and mature players in the Web services and SOA space, and Sonic SOA Suite 6.1 illustrates why. From a wide assortment of development tools for building complex services to a robust messaging platform to the core ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) system, this extremely comprehensive suite provides all the tools and applications needed to build an enterprise-class SOA.
