Oracle Announces Update to Oracle SOA Suite 11g

Oracle has announced Oracle Service Bus 11g, which delivers low-cost, standards-based integration for SOA environments where extreme performance and scalability are key requirements. Oracle Service Bus 11g introduces new capabilities such as Service Result Cache and Automated Lifecycle Service Governance, as well as improved performance and availability for organizations using enterprise datacenters, as well as virtual private cloud environments.

Part of the Oracle Fusion Middleware product family, and a component of Oracle SOA Suite 11g, Oracle Service Bus 11g provides a new approach to eliminating latency times associated with frequent access of static back-end data through an easy to use, single-click enablement of service result caching.  It achieves this by directly embedding and integrating with Oracle Coherence, the in-memory data grid. 

Additionally, in contrast to traditional ESBs, which, Oracle says, treat service governance as an afterthought and depend upon manual management using a disparate set of governance tools, Oracle Service Bus 11g automatically synchronizes service governance with the Enterprise Repository throughout the entire service lifecycle from design through development, deployment, and runtime. The higher level of integration between the ESB and governance reduces errors and improves time to market, according to Oracle.

Supporting cloud integration, Oracle Service Bus 11g is designed to enable customers to easily integrate and bridge the divide between enterprise data centers and public cloud infrastructures.

"The new features in Oracle Service Bus 11g eliminate performance bottlenecks and ensure high service availability so customers can dramatically improve the performance and scalability of their SOA investments," notes David Shaffer, vice president, product management, Oracle Fusion Middleware.
