   Re: [xml-dev] open source integration tool

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Uejio,

60 days ago Orbeon announced the Open Integration Suite (OIS) on this 
mailing list. If you are interested, I'll be happy to put you in touch 
with as many OIS users as you need.

Here are the highlights:

1- What is OIS?
The Open Integration Suite (OIS) open source project offers a modular, 
enterprise-ready, ESB-based business integration software suite that 
provides a viable option to commercial integration and ESB products. 
Some components of OIS have been donated by Orbeon, some are being 
developed by the OIS community (monitored by Orbeon), while others are 
being sourced from complimentary open source projects.

Similar to the JBoss J2EE application server, the OIS project uses the 
commercial and community friendly LGPL open source license.

OIS consists of the following five modules:
1. Orbeon Presentation Server (formerly OXF Server) is a J2EE-based MVC 
framework for building XML-based Web applications that present and 
capture XML using XForms, XSLT, and Web Services.
2. Orbeon XML Server is a standalone XML processing engine providing 
optimized XML query and transformation services with languages such as 
XSLT and XQuery.
3. BPEL Server is a web services orchestration engine for long-running 
processes using Web Services and BPEL. (early to mid 2005)
4. ESB is an Enterprise Service Bus for routing information between 
loosely coupled services. The upcoming JSR-208 standard will figure 
prominently in OIS and its use of an ESB.
5. Orbeon Studio is an eclipse-based IDE for developing integration 
solutions. More info on Studio can be found at:

2- Where can I get OIS?
OIS is available on SourceForge.net. You can download OIS and its 
components/tools at:

3- Who's Orbeon?

Orbeon is a systems integrator focused on helping clients gain advantage 
through custom business integration solutions. We favor open source 
products over commercial products, and employ agile methodologies that 
put each of our clients in control.

Orbeon is a for-profit company that has shifted its business model from 
a product model to a services model, through which profit is made by 
delivering best-in-class integration services for less than the 
traditional integrators. We truly believe that there is greater 
opportunity in building a services and value-added business around an 
enterprise-grade open source business integration suite than selling 
proprietary software and services.
