In this article, we will discuss the limits of adopting an Open Source SOA
testing tool for SOA and Web Services projects. Open Source has become an
essential and popular resources for many tools and platforms used in SOA

View "SOA World Conference & Expo" Power Panel
Executives from IBM, BEA, JBoss, Microsoft, Oracle, and Sun debated diverse
aspects of their application server offerings. A discussion of price points,
from the JBoss open-source model which emphasizes service revenues, to the
more traditional business models from most of the other vendors was followed
by a discussion of the technical merits of each platform and how each company
is uniquely striving to serve what it perceives as its customers' needs.
The six industry experts involved in the Shoot-Out this year were Mark Heid
(IBM), Gary McBride (BEA), Shaun Connolly (JBoss), Dino Chiesa (Microsoft),
Mike Lehmann (Oracle), and Rich Sharples (Sun).
The panel predictably discussed open source, but in ways that might have been
unexpected. One of the more interesting discussion points, posed by Yakov
Fain, for example, invol... (more)

Bringing Cloud Computing Down to Earth with Ultra Low-Cost Endpoints
Cloud-based computing infrastructures deliver broad-based functionality to
end users in far-flung locales but too often the destination device remains a

Cloud Computing is one of the many things enterprise CIOs, CTOs and other
engineers will master in delivering capability. I believe in the power of
new Cloud Computing technologies and concepts and think we should all
continue our focus there.
I have said, and still say, the same thing about design approaches like
Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The constructs, methods and models of
SOA are good practices that result in good designs for enterprises. It is
smart to separate data from application logic and smart to enable agility and
mashups the way good SOA design does.
But a key problem with SOA was the hype associated with it. Everyone started
using the term the way they wanted to. And every IT vendor came out with
their definition of SOA. And every system integrator tried to sell us
buckets of their SOA. And every trade journal ran SOA articles. And too... (more)

Stoneware's "Private Cloud Computing" takes an access approach to cloud
computing. webNetwork helps organizations transition from a client-centric to
a centralized web computing environment. Without application development,
organizations can easily plug their web, Windows, and hosted applications
into the private cloud. Users connecting to the private cloud will be
presented with a virtual web desktop that delivers all of their applications,
services, documents, and data from anywhere, using any device. In this
session Rick German, Co-founder, CEO and Chief Technology Officer of
Stoneware, will explain why and provide a live product demonstration.
