Press Release - CECID Contributed OSB Service Bus to CECID CommunityWebsite

*CECID Contributed OSB Service Bus to CECID Community Website 
<http://www.cecid.hku.hk/pressrelease_20080204_OSBweblauched.php> *

Hong Kong SAR, Peoples Republic of China - 4 February 2008 - Center for 
E-Commerce Infrastructure Development (CECID), The University of Hong 
Kong (HKU) contributes Observatory Service Broker (OSB) to CECID 
open-source community website.

Thanks to ITF funding, the Observatory Service Broker (OSB) is one of 
the project deliverable of Project Plumber. The OSB is an enhanced 
version of a process-driven enterprise service bus, which supports a 
choreography-based business process. It is based on a published Java 
standard - Java Business Integration (JBI). JBI is a Java-based standard 
addressing the EAI and B2B issues based on the paradigms and principles 
advocated by SOA. It defines the standards for composite plug-ins in SOA 
architecture, as well as how the plug-ins can communicate with each 
other. Along with the OSB, there is a Business Process State Tracking 
(BPST) engine registering the rule sets to guide the execution of 
business processes and keep track the state of each rule set.

OSB, BPST and their source codes 
(http://community.cecid.hku.hk/index.php/product/plumber) are released 
to CECID open-source community website 
<http://community.cecid.hku.hk/index.php/> under GNU General Public 
License Version 2 
<http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html>. Later on, 
useful information and articles ranging from technical issue to general 
usage of OSB will be available at the community website. In addition, 
professional support is provided by CECID's VARs and can be requested 
through email enquiry@cecid.hku.hk <mailto:enquiry@cecid.hku.hk>.
