Quick Take: Progress Software Sonic ESB 7.5 & Actional SOA Management 7.0

Progress Software has been busy integrating its Sonic Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) with the SOA Management server it acquired with Actional. The results are Actional SOA Management 7.0 and Sonic ESB 7.5. These products enable automated security, monitoring and policy-enforcement of all services orchestrated by the ESB. Actional 7.0 also improves integration with Oracle Application Server and TIBCO BizWorks, and introduces two proprietary technologies, Session Tracing and Flow Fields. Similar to watermarking, these embed indicator bits within unused areas of XML and Java protocol headers so that messages and data can be traced as they travel through a Web services or other messaging infrastructure. Sonic 7.5 adds support for Business Process Execution Language 2.0. --Andy Dornan
