AmberPoint Upgrades SOA Software

AmberPoint says it has introduced service scorecards and better policy enforcement in the latest version of its management software for service-oriented architectures.

AmberPoint on Monday said it has introduced service scorecards and better policy enforcement in the latest version of its management software for service-oriented architectures.

In addition, the SOA Management System has broader support for third party security products and software platforms, the Oakland, Calif., company said.

The upgrade introduces an agent that automatically enforces policies on the client side, relieving developers of the responsibility of implementing management logic on clients. For example, if a service requires encryption, the agent will encrypt messages before sending them.

The new version also dynamically adapts to system changes. If a policy is updated on the service, the new policy is automatically downloaded and enforced at the client. The new agents also allow organizations to monitor system health and performance from the perspective of the client, helping managers better understand such issues as network lag.

The service scorecards are published to SOA registries and display throughput, availability, response times, faults, service level agreement violations and exceptions across a choice of intervals, such as last day, week or month. The feature enables developers to choose services based on their behavior and helps architects understand service characteristics relative to the intended performance of the system.

Among the additional security products SOA System Management supports are CA eTrust SiteMinder, Tivoli Access Manager, Microsoft Active Directory and LDAP v3 directories such as Sun One LDAP Server.

New platform support include the latest editions of IBM WebSphere, BEA WebLogic and Microsoft IIS.

SOA System Management is available today. Pricing was not disclosed.
