BEA Retools for Web Services
Review: AquaLogic service bus and WebLogic server are geared for SOA creation.Once upon a time, the World Wide Web was all about the pages, back when HTML and good page design were the primary concerns. Then it became all about the applications, as Web developers moved to robust Web development languages and the powerful application servers that drove them. Nowadays, its all about the services. So its no surprise that AquaLogic Service Bus 2.0 and WebLogic Server 9.0, the two most recent releases of the core products in BEA Systems Inc.s Web application platform, are tightly focused on Web services and building and managing an SOA (service-oriented architecture).
Released in August, WebLogic Server 9.0 has many of the standard upgrade features one would expect from an application server, such as improved scalability and reliability and expanded standards support. But it also includes several changes that make it a friendlier base platform for Web services.
