Open source ESB initiative goes into Apache incubation
My first meeting at the EclipseWorld conference this week in Cambridge, Mass. turned out to be one of the best. IONA Technologies detailed its bear-hug embrace of open source as a burgeoning market driver for the company. IONA is not just dabbling in open source, it does appear now as its fundamental road to the future.
As part of that drive, the IONA Artix commercial ESB, which formed a core for the Celtix open source ESB project, has a new progeny. A few weeks ago, Celtix was moved to Apache Software Foundation oversight and joined with the Codehaus XFire open source Java SOAP framework initiative to form CeltiXfire.
