Oracle + Sun SOA Strategy

Since Oracle’s Sun acquisition completed on January 27th, Oracle started a massive communication campaign to detail product’s roadmap and integration.

Regarding SOA products and technology strategy and integration, you can view the full web cast (17 minutes) or just read through my summary below.

Oracle will obviously continue to focus on it’s Fusion Middleware offering, and more specifically, Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Service Bus (formerly known as Aqualogic Service Bus from Bea).  This is the strategic SOA platform for the future.

  • Java CAPS will be maintained and improved for existing customers 
  • GlassFish ESB will continue as an open source project
  • Oracle plans to support collaboration between Java CAPS and Oracle SOA Suite through bridges technology, allowing to bring new features to Java CAPS such as SOA Governance, Workflow etc …
  • Oracle expects to integrate key features of Java CAPS into Oracle SOA Suite 

Oracle also extends the End of Support dead line for SRE 5.0.5, eGate 4.5.3, GlassFish ESB 2.1 and Java CAPS 6.2  to January 2014 (premium support) or Jan 2017 (extended support) 

As always, Oracle also proposes a lifetime sustaining support.

By the way, for those of you wanted to start with Oracle’s SOA Suite, my colleague Patrice just published an excellent three-parts tutorial in addition to the material published by Oracle.
