IBM Java ESB Announced

IBM announced a lightweight, Java-based ESB. Big [B/G]lue already has a low-end J2EE appserver in its pocket.

Dave Chappell: "They're trying to ride the fence here," he said. "In the past they've tried to help customers squint the right way to see an ESB in the products that they already have. Yet now they've finally built one of their own and admitted it really is a product category."

How long till IBM selects an open source ESB to add to its catalog? Any candidates?

    OK. So what? IBM has a long history of relations with open source communities, Apache to begin with. Pushing open source is definitely a part of IBM's "on demand" strategy.
