Columbus, Ohio (PressExposure) September 27, 2007 -- Bostech helps companies efficiently integrate software applications using a standards-based middleware solution. Bostech recently announced the release of ChainBuilder ESB 1.1, an easy to use, standards-based SOA solution.
ChainBuilder ESB is compliant with the widely approved open standard for ESBs, JBI (Java Business Integration). Donât get tied into a proprietary vendor solution -- create and tailor your own components or mix and match with any other JBI vendor or community supplied components for a custom Enterprise Service Bus. Bostech also selected the popular Eclipse IDE as the standard development platform for ChainBuilder ESB. Developers can use this familiar interface with accompanying wizards and extensive drag and drop functionality to easily create robust service components via this canvas and tool palette environment.
Organizations use ChainBuilder ESB to leverage their investment in mature applications with straight-forward integration paths to disparate systems. In addition to standard XML and WebServices support, ChainBuilder ESB is used to create message definitions for fixed, variable, and other non-XML message formats and to easily connect to non-WebServices protocols, like FTP, File and TCP/IP.
ChainBuilder ESB includes feature-rich communication and service components normally found in expensive commercial packages. Developers can complete solutions faster by using templates to create and customize industry message formats, like EDI X12 and Healthcare HL7 messages. Remotely manage the finished Enterprise Service Bus through ChainBuilder ESBâs web-based Administrative Console.
Bostech deploys a dual-license distribution model for ChainBuilder ESB. Developers can download the open source software under the common GPL license at [http://download.chainforge.net]. Additionally, these developers can purchase a Professional Subscription that provides ChainBuilder ESB training, support, warranty and intellectual property indemnification. A commercial license is also available for partners who do not release source code for their applications.
