ABSTRACT
The article discusses the integration of open-source infrastructures and service-oriented architecture (SOA) by several computer software companies. It is stated that computer software companies such as Iona Technologies Inc., Red Hat Inc. and International Business Machines Corp. are using open-source products as key components for SOA implementation. It is believed that the approach could give customers the flexibility to conform SOA deployments to their specific needs and could provide benefits such as customization and lower cost. In addition, software vendors are creating frameworks and tools that enable the design, configuration, assembly, deployment, monitoring and management of software designed around a SOA.
