JBoss Aims for High-End Market with New Open Source Middleware Projects

JBoss Messaging and JBoss Web drive technical innovation for the JEMS Open Source Platform for SOA.
JBoss, Inc., the creator of an open source platform for service-oriented architecture (SOA), JBoss Enterprise Middleware Suite (JEMS), has introduced two open source projects designed to move JBoss further into the high-end market: JBoss Messaging and JBoss Web Server (JBoss Web).

Today, JEMS is already deployed in hundreds of intensive, high-end transactional environments, including financial hubs, trading exchanges and some of the world's busiest e-commerce companies. The advance of these high-performance technologies will accelerate JEMS further into the top end of the market. JBoss Messaging provides an open source and standards-based messaging platform that brings enterprise-class messaging to the mass market. JBoss Web brings high-performance Web server capabilities to users of Apache Tomcat and JBoss Application Server.

"JBoss is focused on solving real-world customer needs and delivering technologies optimized for the complex IT environments common to large enterprises," said Shaun Connolly, vice president of product management, JBoss, Inc. "JBoss Messaging and JBoss Web signify another important milestone in JBoss' technology vision. These projects expand and enhance the JEMS stack for our high-end customers while maintaining the simplicity and modularity that have established JEMS as the leading open source platform for SOA."
