Petals JBI in the Press

The Petals project, created in June and hosted by ObjectWeb since then, is in the news today.

The Petals services platform extends ObjectWeb ESB initiative with a JBI container as a core element to build standard based integration solutions. Built on top of Celtix, the project adopts a highly distributed integration approach, in which many JBI containers running on different Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) achieve location transparency via a JMS based transport layer. In a next step, the platform is expected to provide specialized B2B bindings enabling organizations to expand their information systems beyond their physical and business boundaries. Petals is supported by EBM WebSourcing (France) and Fossil E-Commerce (Brazil), two corporate members of ObjectWeb specialized in business integration technologies.

Massimo Pezzini, VP Distinguished Analyst, Gartner: "Thanks to web services, service oriented architecture is entering the mainstream and users are increasingly looking for standard-based, extensible enterprise service buses to support their SOA strategies. Therefore ESB technology will rapidly commoditize and open source will play a crucial role in terms of dramatically accelerating this trend."
