Review: Version 4.0 of Iona's Artix is not the massive upgrade that the previous version was, but Artix 4.0 does offer some compelling benefits, including business process orchestration development and improved standards support.

When we reviewed Iona Artix 3.0 a year ago, we said that it was such a massive upgrade over previous versions that users who chose to upgrade might feel like they were using a completely different product. Artix 4.0, released in April, isnt quite that big of an upgrade, although it does offer some fairly significant improvements over Version 3.0.
