IONA Becomes Silver Sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation

IONA announced that it has become a Silver Sponsor of The Apache Software
Foundation. The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is a non-profit
corporation dedicated to consensus-based, collaborative software
development. Financial sponsorship will help ASF to acquire servers and
hardware infrastructure, purchase bandwidth and needed resources, and
increase awareness of ASF projects and incubating initiatives. IONA's
commitment to Open Source software is an integral part of its 15-year
heritage. With a high degree of Open Source community involvement, IONA
supports the efforts of its developers who are members and contributors
to a number of ASF projects. Aiding the efforts for increased adoption
of Open Source SOA, IONA developers play key roles in the Apache
ActiveMQ project, the Apache ServiceMix project, the CXF project in
the Apache Incubator, and the Apache Camel project, a sub-project of
ActiveMQ. IONA's distributed, Open Source SOA infrastructure solutions,
FUSE Message Broker, FUSE ESB, FUSE Services Framework and FUSE Mediation
Router, are built on code developed in those ASF projects and are
distributed under the terms of the Apache License 2.0. IONA provides
professional support, consulting and training for enterprise customers
looking to deploy this Open Source SOA technology in their mission-critical
business applications. IONA also recently announced the launch of Artix
Connect for WCF (Windows Communication Foundation). Artix Connect for
WCF enables Global 2000 customers to optimize their investments in
Microsoft technology and seamlessly extend connectivity with legacy
applications from within the Microsoft Visual Studio development
environment. By wrapping back-office legacy systems behind
standards-based Web Services Description Language (WSDL) interfaces,
Artix Connect for WCF allows the .NET developer to connect with Java
or CORBA without the need for custom adapters or new code generation.
The product enables companies to leverage existing investments in Java,
CORBA, and more, without leaving the Microsoft Visual Studio development
environment or requiring additional skills. Artix Data Services, a
component of IONA's Artix family of advanced SOA infrastructure products,
offers the broadest support for financial services standards, message
types and validation rules, including SWIFT, SEPA, FpML, TWIST, ISO
20022, CREST and FIX, with the ability to model any data format for
complete compliance.
