Cape Clear ESB 6.5 Provides Eclipse-Based Development Environment

Security and Scalability Top Priorities for Company's Latest Product

Cape Clear Software will make its latest product, Cape Clear 6.5, available in early December. The company has focused on three key benefits in this software, as it targets the provision of full support for mission critical enterprise-wide service deployments:

1. Unified Eclipse Toolset - A unified SOA development toolset that reduces application development time and effort. Cape Clear 6.5 provides a single, integrated toolset within the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment, including enhanced BPEL, XML/WSDL and Java development tools. This toolset supports seamless source code control system integration, single-click deploy-and-test capabilities, and automatic detection and configuration of application server environments.

2. Standards-Based Security – Guaranteed comprehensive and interoperable security across services. Cape Clear 6.5 provides a powerful new security policy framework for WS-Security and the WS-I basic security profile.

3. Mission Critical Scalability – Enhanced reliability and scalability for enterprise-wide deployments. Cape Clear 6.5 provides comprehensive ‘one-click’ clustering capability, enabling load-balancing and high-availability for stateful BPEL processes.

“Supporting enterprise-wide mission critical applications requires a proven, 100% standards-based, middleware agnostic approach” said Annrai O’Toole (pictured), CEO, Cape Clear Software. “With Cape Clear 6.5, we have changed the rules of the game yet again - we’re proving that implementing a SOA can be fast and simple, yet still provide the enterprise-level qualities of service that our global customers require.”

Cape Clear 6.5 offers increased ease-of-use through an Eclipse based development environment, the company says, as well as its expanded security compliance through open standards, and support for new enterprise-class clustering and high-availability capabilities.

“One of the early innovators in the ESB market, Cape Clear has grown its offering to a broad suite by adding service orchestration and some management features, and now has one of the deepest implementations of the Web services stack available,” states Mike Gilpin, VP, Research Director at Forrester Research in the November 2005 Forrester Wave: Enterprise Service Bus, Q4 2005.

Distributed travel services technology provider Global Travel Exchange recently selected Cape Clear 6.5 for its Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform.

“We decided against using traditional integration platforms to implement our SOA because of the massive cost and complexity associated with those technologies,” said Global Travel Exchange CEO Christopher Berlandier. “Using Cape Clear, we were able to download all the code, documentation and tutorials, and install the software in less than an hour, and build our proof-of-concept in a day, without requiring assistance from the company.”
