JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.0 is the latest major upgrade to the platform and includes an updated enterprise services bus with enhanced protocol listeners, web services integration, management consoles and transformation and a new rules engine that can be managed by JBoss Enterprise BRMS (business rules management system). The enhanced platform enables enterprises to more rapidly deploy new applications and services while leveraging their existing IT investment to compete more effectively.

Further expanding Red Hat’s middleware portfolio is JBoss Developer Studio 3.0, a comprehensive development platform enabling rapid development of highly interactive applications and services. This platform now includes expanded support for all of the JBoss Enterprise Platforms; JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, SOA, Portal and Data Services platforms. Additionally, the toolset is built on the latest major release of Eclipse 3.5, and includes new development capabilities for building SOA services and data transformation tools for developing enhanced integration services. For enterprise IT organizations looking to decrease development costs by reducing time-to-deploy, JBoss Developer Studio 3.0 offers a comprehensive development package.

“Both of these platforms add new and critical capabilities to the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio, and help to form a broad range of open source middleware reference architecture which enables organizations to address their application development, deployment and integration needs,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president, middleware, Red Hat.

To expand the use of these cloud-based applications and services, the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is designed to integrate applications and services in cloud and on-premise deployments allowing enterprises to further optimize their IT infrastructure cost and flexibility. Cloud-based IT has the potential to further increase business process automation productivity when integrated into value chains with a service-oriented architecture.

“Application development within the SOA-equipped enterprise has evolved significantly over the past two years, demanding a more eclectic and flexible arsenal of expertise and matching tools,” said Brad Shimmin, Principal Analyst Application Infrastructure at Current Analysis. “Services and their underlying data must be considered together, as do cloud and premise deployments, as do rich internet applications and complex integrated services. JBoss Developer Studio 3.0 melds these disparate concerns using the agility of the Eclipse 3.5 platform and a broad quiver of supported frameworks that includes RichFaces, Seam, Spring, Struts and GWT.”

Red Hat will feature both JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.0 and JBoss Developer Studio 3.0, as well as the entire middleware portfolio at Eclipsecon 2010 in Santa Clara, CA.
