SOA Software Rolls Out Registry-Independent SOA Suite

SOA Software's registry-independent SOA infrastructure supports Flashline, Infravio, LogicLibrary and Systinet registries.

SOA Software has announced that its service-oriented architecture and Web services management, security and run-time governance suite is registry-independent and supports registry offering from Flashline, Infravio, LogicLibrary and Systinet, a division of Mercury Interactive.

This announcement validates the companys registry-independent approach and signals the next phase in enterprise SOA adoption, in that the SOA market is maturing with UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration) registries as core building blocks of SOAs, said officials at Santa Monica, Calif.-based SOA Software.

"A standards-based registry is a fundamental requirement for SOA governance," said Jake Sorofman, vice president of product marketing at Systinet, in a statement.

Anne Thomas Manes, vice president and research director at Burton Group, in a statement said, "Registries can use SOA management solutions to help manage the service provisioning process, and SOA management solutions can use registries to maintain information about managed services and to learn about new services that need to be provisioned and managed."

Flashlines registry software interoperates with SOA Softwares products through UDDI Version 3, said Cathy Lippert, vice president of product management at Flashline.

"The success of an enterprises SOA is based upon the ability of that architecture and its underlying implementations to meet critical business objectives," added Alan Himler, vice president of product marketing and management at LogicLibrary, in a statement.

And Miko Matsumura, vice president of technology standards at Infravio, also in a statement, said, "In this maturing market, customers want a complete governance solution which enforces policies across design-time, run-time and change-time lifecycle stages, and across multiple organizational boundaries."
